Kobe Bryant took to Twitter on Monday to announce he will no longer be tweeting during the Lakers' games in the playoffs. Bryant's tweets during Game 1 of the Lakers and San Antonio Spurs game garnered media attention that Bryant said was unintentional on his part.
Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni responded to the tweets by calling Bryant a "fan" and said Bryant wants to be a part of the team. Bryant suffered a season-ending achilles tendon tear which should sideline him from six to eight months. Bryant couldn't travel with the team to San Antonio but will be with the team for Game 3 and Game 4 at Staples Center.
