NEW YORK (AP) - A headache for his coach, Kobe Bryant's tweets during a Lakers playoff game were a hit at the NBA office.
Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver says he thought Bryant's online commentary was ``fascinating,'' and that he missed Bryant's live tweeting.
Unable to sit on the Lakers' bench after his season-ending torn Achilles, Bryant appeared to spend most of their 91-79 Game 1 loss to San Antonio on Sunday online, offering some pointed analysis of what he was seeing.
Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni later called Bryant a ``fan'' when asked about the tweets during the game.
NBA players are prohibited from posting on social media during games. Silver says he doesn't think that rule needs to cover injured players, as long as they aren't on the bench.
