ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — A few weeks ago, I wrote here about how skilfully Lakers guard Kobe Bryant had embraced Instagram since injuring his achilles’ tendon. Since that post, Kobe has continued his social media campaign, providing coverage of his trip to Brazil and then, after Dwight Howard announced he was leaving L.A., Bryant unfollowed Howard on Twitter and posted a photo on Instagram that seemed to make clear how he felt about the situation.
Late last night, word broke that the Lakers would use their amnesty provision to sever ties with forward Metta World Peace. Soon after, the Mamba returned to Twitter to make his feelings known.
