Following the Lakers' 122-105 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, Kobe Bryant took to Twitter and gave credit where credit was due.
Bryant sent a tweet to Thunder's Russell Westbrook, complimenting him on his performance.
"@russwest44 was cookin tonight. He's got mamba blood runnin thru his veins . You gave it to me tonight lil bro. C u down the road!" Bryant tweeted.
Westbrook tallied a game-high 37 points and 10 rebounds, while Bryant scored 30, despite suffering from an ulnar-nerve contusion in his right elbow that briefly forced him out of the game.

BEST OF MAXIM
Not sure what made the Hornets forget to guard Kobe Bryant, but with less than 30 seconds left in a two point ball game, Kobe squeezes through the New Orleans Hornet defenders for an easy dunk. Bryant scored 42-points in the L.A. Lakers 108-102 victory.
The Los Angeles Lakers are a flawed team. They must be to have the roster that they do and not be on top of the league rather than fighting for a playoff spot. However, if there is one thing that can be said about this flawed team it is this--you can never count these guys out.
Wednesday night the fans in New Orleans were happy thinking that there franchise was going to topple...

As the Oklahoma City Thunder continue to storm through the Western Conference, every game is must see TV. The reason isn’t because Kevin Durant is an incredible scorer, or because Serge Ibaka is swatting shots, it’s because of the question of how Russell Westbrook will play? As he is often brilliant, occasionally wreck less and...
During a recent special on NBA TV, Michael Jordan was asked who is the best player is in the game today, Kobe Bryant or LeBron James?
The six-time NBA champion and five-time league MVP's gives a bit of a mixed signal with his answer, but ultimately chooses Bryant because of his five titles.
The New Orleans Hornets blew a 25-point lead and lost to the Los Angeles Lakers 108-102 Wednesday. After committing supremely idiotic plays like this one, you can’t help but say they deserved to lose.
The Lakers faked out the Hornets on an inbounds play with 25.5 seconds left in the game by lining up on the side of the court they were defending, not the one they were attacking...
In an interview with Zach Lowe of Grantland, former Oklahoma City Thunder analytics consultant Ben Alamar said that the team considered drafting Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez instead of point guard Russell Westbrook.
Alamar said that the Thunder had questions about Westbrook’s ability to be a point guard. When Westbrook’s UCLA teammate Darren Collison got injured, he took...

Luckily, this interview...
A remarkable comeback in their latest contest showed how serious the Los Angeles Lakers appear to be about making a push for the playoffs.
Trying again to move above .500 for the first time since November, the Lakers hope to continue their home success over the Toronto Raptors on Friday night while trying for a season-high fifth straight victory at Staples Center.
Trailing by as...
Two crazy plays involving L.A. teams in the Association tonight. First possibly the best alley-lop in NBA history by Jamal Crawford and Blake Griffin. And here's the Hornets forgetting what hoop they were shooting at after over 23 minutes of the 2nd half. Can the Hornets help out the Lakers any more? First they trade them Kobe Bryant and now they both a huge lead in such embarassing...
