Kobe plays piano in coat to blow off steam
by Chris Strauss, USA TODAY Sports
After a 95-83 loss in Chicago that he called “very, very frustrating,” Kobe Bryant needed to blow off some steam. And thanks to his relatively new Twitter account, which instantly became a must-follow feed, the Lakers star showed the world just what he does when he’s furious and stuck in the freezing Midwest unable to sleep.

Bryant posted this image at 12:59 a.m. PST, making it nearly 3 a.m. in Chicago, where he didn’t bother to remove his hat, scarf, stole and hat before sitting down at the keys.
A follower asked Bryant how long he’d been playing.
“1 year. I learned moonlight by ear. reminded me of strength, fragility, joy,love, pain etc.. I learned it for Vanessa #ourjourney”
Three and a half hours later, Bryant still wasn’t calm enough to hit the sack.

The Lakers are now 17-24 and 5-14 on the road this season. From the looks of it, a continued slide would be awful for Lakers fans, but excellent for the Internet.
