Kobe Bryant still isn't able to rock the suit and tie on the Lakers bench after tearing his Achilles' tendon, but the sidelined star made his presence felt on Twitter during the Lakers' series opening loss against the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday. 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 Bryant, who is out 6-9 months after undergoing surgery last week, also responded via Twitter following Mike D'Antoni's comments after the game. When asked about Bryant's in-game tweeting pushing the Lakers to go to the post, D'Antoni rolled his eyes and said, Its great to have that commentary. Hes a fan. Hes a fan right now. Bryant was quick to respond: A fan?? Lol microphonetalk Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) April 21, 2013 On to game 2. I will be watching from the crib again in a pau jersey and laker face paint ha!
