SAN ANTONIO (AP) - The Los Angeles Lakers have battled injuries, turmoil and lofty expectations under a heavy spotlight all season, so excuse them if they roll their eyes over the attention given to Kobe Bryant's tweets.
Bryant tweeted throughout the Lakers' loss to the San Antonio Spurs in Game 1 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series. Bryant, out for the season with a torn Achilles, critiqued his team's offense on his Twitter account while watching the national broadcast Sunday afternoon.
Bryant will no longer tweet during games, saying he doesn't want to be a distraction - but was he?
``Absolutely not. I'm a distraction,'' Metta World Peace said. ``I'm much more of a distraction than Kobe is.''
