Should Kobe Bryant tweeting during Lakers playoff games even matter?

While the Lakers were battling the Spurs on the court in Game 1 of the first round of the playoffs on Sunday, Kobe Bryant was playing Twitter-coach from his Orange County pad.

Hoopsvibe's quick call:  It was pretty obvious in the post game press conference that Lakers Coach Mike D'Antoni wasn't a fan of Kobe's tweets.  Wonder how Phil would've handled it?

Lamar Odom Tweets His Reasons For Sucking.

Lamar Odom Tweets His Reasons For Sucking.

Lamar Odom tweets his reasons for sucking.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Stop tweeting. You look like an idiot.

Lamar Odom has plenty of time to think. The Dallas season is over and his season with Dallas was over weeks ago when they dropped him from the team following an argument between owner Mark Cuban and Odom. Just one full season removed from his 6-man of the year award, he now has been dropped by Dallas and looking for someone that wants to take a chance on a one-time potential All Star getting deeper into his thirties.

Lamar recently tweeted some reasons for why he couldn't focus with the Mavs. Lamar has long been known as thin-skinned and a very sensitive player, so his difficulty in dealing with the death of his cousin and close friend is understandable, but the facts remain the same.

The facts are Lamar struggled to produce even marginal numbers with the Mavs last season leaving many experts wondering if his career is simply over. Odom put up 6.6 points per game, 3.8 rebounds per game, and shot only 35% from the field. These aren't exactly All Star numbers. The question for general managers in the NBA is was this a fluke year or is Odom simply at the end of his NBA career? He's played 13 years in the NBA which is a full career by anyone's standards. Now that he's in his 30s and looking toward life after basketball, the question is whether that life will start now or later.

The NBA Lockout is here. Go planking!

The NBA Lockout is here. Go planking!

The time is here to be liberated from the NBA shackles. Some of us were waiting in anticipation to the excitement that the lockout brings. When July 1, 2011 arrived at midnight, did you have a party just like New Year’s Eve? Of course not. Shit was depressing. Countless hours of watching pro basketball might be eliminated when November rolls around. No free agency during the summer. No trades. No rookie summer league. Nothing. If you’re not a fan of Major League Baseball or any other sport then meh.

Things that are annoying

The NBA season has been a long ride. This was one of the most anticipated seasons I can remember because of the Heatles and Kobe Bryant’s potential three-peat as the Lakers’ alpha dog. I know we’re not going to agree with many stuff because this all opinion much like how many NBA writers are migrating over to write opinionated pieces more than ever. I am shocked that not many people point out the junk that makes it on television. Some of it doesn’t even make sense.

Miami Heat making NBA playoffs look too easy. Who can stop them?

Everything is set up perfectly for the Heatles to win it all. They made quick work of the Philadelphia Sixers. The Boston Celtics are falling down all over the place trying to guard LeBron and Wade. Their opponent in the Eastern Conference Finals will probably be quick work, too. This is what LeBron, Wade, and Bosh wanted. This is reality. They are making the 2011 playoffs look like an exhibition. It’s like that?

6-4 Guards and under will always have a hard time getting NBA MVP.
Monday , Apr , 04 , 2011 J.N.

6-4 Guards and under will always have a hard time getting NBA MVP.

I thought I was done talking about Derrick Rose’s MVP candidacy. No, really. I thought I was finished. I can’t wait until the ordeal is over. I explored why people truly despise the kid as one of the best in this article noting that. I understand the hate even when the reasons are illogical. People have to start giving the kid his earned props. He doesn’t deserve it. Instead, Rose earned it. He is showing us that hard work pays off.
