Kobe Bryant to End In-Game Tweeting

Kobe Bryant live-tweeted the Lakers’ playoff loss yesterday, and it got nearly as much attention as the game. His criticisms of Pau Gasol and Mike D’Antoni were fodder for D’Antoni’s post-game press conference, and his tweets dominated the halftime and highlight shows. Kobe apparently noticed this was a distraction, because he’s going to knock it off.
Let’s get one thing straight: there is no way this was Kobe’s call. We know too much about his desire to micromanage his teammates to think that he would ever choose not to be an armchair coach as he recovers from Achilles surgery. A more likely scenario is that somebody in the organization gave him a strong warning, although honestly, what can anybody say to Kobe about something like this? Let’s see how long he lasts.
