Kobe Bryant the basketball player was a ruthless killer who had no issue steamrolling others in his never-ending quest to win championships. Kobe Bryant the retired basketball player is a guy who tweets every once in a while. He usually tweets about #brands and variations on the word “muse.” It is incredibly weird but also makes him a must-follow on Twitter.
For example, the first game of the 2017 NBA Finals was on Thursday night. This was the most anticipated Finals in a long, long time, the rubber match in a trilogy between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors. It seemed like everyone was tweeting about it.
That is everyone except for Kobe, of course. Instead, he was busy congratulating a fellow Nike athlete – Diana Taurasi – on setting the WNBA’s all-time three-point record.
