On Sunday while the Lakers faced off against the Spurs in the first game between the teams for the NBA playoffs, Kobe hopped on Twitter and gave his thoughts on the action like everyone else. It was the perfect opportunity to see what a player of Kobe’s caliber looks for during a game. And it’s also something that several players have done in the past.   I like how Nash is moving so far. Both teams a lil out of rhythm to start — Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) April 21, 2013   Gotta get to the block. See wat spurs r gonna do with pau and d12 — Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) April 21, 2013   Gotta keep the spurs offense in front of our d. They r great at penetrating and pitching to their shooters — Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) April 21, 2013   What I would say if I was there right now? “Pau get ur ass on the block and don’t move till u get it” #realtalk — Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) April 21, 2013   Gotta milk pau in the post right now and d12. Will get good looks from it — Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) April 21, 2013   Matador Defense on Parker. His penetration is hurting us — Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) April 21, 2013 But of course, anything involving the “Black Mamba” can never just be simple. During the postgame conference, a reporter asked what head coach Mike D’Antoni thought of Kobe tweeting during the game. D’Antoni rolled his eyes and said he’s a fan like everyone else. Check the post game conference video at the 2:43 mark.   A fan?? Lol #microphonetalk — Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) April 21, 2013 Of course, this is where the drama is sparked.  Kobe has decided that he won’t live tweet games anymore because he doesn’t want to be a distraction to his team. On to game 2. I will be watching from the crib again in a pau jersey and laker face paint ha! All jk aside We will be fine on wed #fanmamba — Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) April 21, 2013   I see my tweeting during the game is being talked about as much as the game itself. Not my intention , just bored as I guess #notagain — Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) April 21, 2013   Kobe also shared a warm moment with Phil Jackson over the pain of not being there to help his teammates win. @philjackson11 I gotta do something. It’s horrible not being able to at least be there with them. — Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) April 21, 2013   Womp. Hope you enjoyed it for the moment…
