Kobe Bryant Wins on the Court and Twitter

Before Sunday’s Lakers-Mavericks game, Dallas owner Mark Cuban suggested that Los Angeles should use their amnesty clause (fancy way of saying release) on Kobe Bryant in the offseason.

Kobe Bryant being Kobe Bryant, took Cuban’s comments to heart and carried the Lakers on his back in a 103-99 victory with 38 points, 12 rebounds and 7 assists.

If that wasn’t bad enough for Cuban to swallow, Bryant tweeted the following after the game:

Welp.

Credit to Cuban for not only RT’ing the jackasses who were going after him on Twitter (because everyone is a tough guy on the Internet), but for his follow up to Bryant’s tweet:

 

The Lakers would be a lock for the playoffs if every GM from here on out found a way to piss off Bryant.
