What would Kobe tweet? Bulls-Nets edition

Thanks to an injury, Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) is watching the NBA playoffs from well off the sidelines. So he did what any athlete with a smartphone would do: He angrily live-tweeted the L.A. Lakers' loss to San Antonio in Game 1 on Sunday.

Among his gems: "What I would say if I was there right now? 'Pau get ur ass on the block and don't move till u get it' #realtalk"

On Monday, Bryant tweeted he'd cease that practice from here on out. But RedEye gladly picks up where the Black Mamba left off. Presenting: What would Kobe Bryant tweet, Bulls-Nets edition.

 

FIRST QUARTER

12:00: Got my Joakim Noah jersey on. starting even tho he's hurt. watch and learn, pau gasol!

11:03: Hold up, fans actually show up ON TIME in Brooklyn? Must be crappy weather in NY. That's why I luv LA.

8:58: Booooooriiiiiing. Come on refs it cant be that complicated a foul call.
