Metta World Peace Wants Kobe Bryant to Keep Tweeting During Games

by April 24, 2013

Unfortunately, Kobe Bryant has vowed to stop using Twitter during the Los Angeles Lakers’ Playoff games. Bryant feels that his tweets during the Game 1 loss in San Antonio created too much drama. Teammate Metta World Peace, however, doesn’t see things the same way. Per the LA Times: “I love when Kobe tweets,’ World Peace said Tuesday. ‘Kobe should tweet Game 2 the whole time, every possession, critique us, criticize us, chew us out…. I love Kobe. Kobe’s great … He should coach. Put a suit and tie on, a bow tie, put the Mamba symbol right here and get on the bench and coach. Drag that [injured] leg here. Kobe’s a great coach. Too bad he’s not going to coach after [retirement]. He would be a great coach.’ Bryant said he would not tweet about Game 2 because it received so much attention after Game 1, some of it negative. But was it really a distraction? ‘Absolutely not,’ World Peace said. ‘I’m a distraction. I’m much more of a distraction than Kobe.’ World Peace enjoyed the exchange between Bryant and Coach Mike D’Antoni after Game 1. Bryant was critical of the Lakers on Twitter, saying they needed to go to the low post more often, but D’Antoni rolled his eyes at Bryant’s tweets and called him a fan while talking to reporters. ‘Mike D’Antoni’s slick, boy. That was awesome,’ World Peace said. ‘I love that. Kobe was awesome tweeting coach’s decisions on the court and then coach tweeted him, or messaged him back. It’s all about that.'”
