Game 2 of the Lakers vs. Spurs playoffs is set to go down tonight and it’s a must-win game for our boys in purple and gold.
Most of the drama, however, is taking place off the court and on Twitter.

Bryant took those comments as a major diss and returned to Twitter to vent:
After a backlash ensued, Kobe decided to take a vow of Twitter silence, at least during Lakers games, that is.
