Now that Kobe Bryant has some time on his hands, he’s decided to explore the Instagram world. But, like anyone trying out a new technology, he’s experienced a few hitches. Let’s just say he’s still getting his photo cropping skills down.
“Mi hermano Pau came by and chilled wit with me for a few hrs. We laughed and joked and talked strategy…,” wrote as his caption to the photo.
A few minutes after sharing the photo, Bryant realized his error.
“Here’s a better pic! Lol still learning how to work this damn thing ha!”
Here’s the corrected picture:
“Con mi hermano! #lakers #countonpau #mambaedits ha,” was his caption.
To his credit, Gasol played along well.
I’m glad to have my head back on my shoulders @kobebryant !! Lol! Always great to see you brother. #countonteammates!

Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard knows that all of the pressure is on him after Kobe Bryant went down with a ruptured Achilles Friday night. While Dwight did well in his first game post Kobe (26 pts, 17 rbs), he has knows it will take a lot more than just one game to convince Lakers fans that he is the man to lead the franchise into these playoffs and the future.
