SAN ANTONIO - Even if most of the sports writers, reporters, and announcers have said that they think Kobe "The Black Mamba" should stop tweeting during the playoffs, one Laker teammate has insisted that he keep it up.
Metta World Peace, the angry player once known as Ron "The Detroit Devil" Artest, tweeted Kobe and told him to continue with his highly insightful, educational, and geographical tweets.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, sometimes Metta World Peace does tend to sound a little like Metta World Busey.
Lakers Coach Mike D'Antoni did not like having his star player-coach and head cheerleader Kobe "Vino" Bryant tweeting as he said it was not only a distraction to the team but an embarrassment to him.
Kobe responded by saying that the coach can tell Steve Nash, Dwight Howard, and Steve Blake not to tweet but nobody, not even Oprah Winfrey, Wolf Blitzer, or Sandy Koufax is going to tell him not to tweet.
FOOTNOTE: Kobe informed Rufus Reno with Sports Balls Illustrated Daily that he will most probably not tweet during the playoffs simply because he wants to give his tweeting fingers a rest.
