First of all, I would like to apologize for a First Take video even being associated with this website. I assure you it won’t happen again unless it’s an absolute necessity.
That said, I need a scapegoat right now. So I’ll go with the man who rolled his eyes when asked about Kobe Bryant’s tweets during game 1, calling him “just a fan”.
Thanks, Mike D’Antoni.

-Sigh- As someone who isn’t looking forward to a series of the Lakers being mauled by the San Antonio Spurs, Kobe Bryant’s twitter commentary could have provided a much needed distraction.
Instead I’ll get to to wallow in the misery of the Lakers’ defense, as they’re repeatedly befuddled by Tony Parker and a simple pick-and-roll.
Offensively, I won’t even attempt to decipher that train-wreck. Honestly though, who’s the point guard; Steve Blake, Steve Nash, Pau Gasol? No really, please let me know.
Call me bitter, I just miss Kobe. He deserves to be on the floor, he’s the reason the Lakers are even in the postseason to begin with. And seeing as he can’t travel to join his teammates on Wednesday night, he should sure as hell be able to say whatever he’d like on his twitter – he’s earned it.
