Mike D’Antoni Calls Kobe ‘Fan’ After Loss, Kobe Responds on Twitter

Following the Lakers’ Game 1 loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday afternoon, Mike D’Antoni was asked about Kobe’s tweeting during the game. It didn’t seem that D’Antoni was incredibly thrilled with the idea that Kobe was tweeting advice to the team during the game, referring to Bryant as “a fan” in the press conference.

“It’s great to have that commentary,” D’Antoni said while rolling his eyes.

Here’s the complete D’Antoni press conference.

Immediately after the exchange in the San Antonio press room, Bryant took to Twitter once again.

Well this is awkward. Bryant clearly wasn’t entirely thrilled with D’Antoni’s comments, and let about two million Twitter followers know about it.

Say what you will about Bryant’s tweets during the game, but D’Antoni’s attitude towards those tweets during a press conference following a game is the bigger issue here. Even if D’Antoni has issues with Bryant tweeting about his team, which seems evident, a private conversation is probably the best way to handle that.

What this means for the team moving forward is obviously unknown, but it certainly appears to be a bit of an issue.

Still, Bryant kept it lighthearted after the game.

At least the Lakers always keep things interesting. Nobody will ever argue that.
