Kobe Bryant's always been wired differently from ... just about everyone else, but putting him on Twitter has been kind of like a public scan of his brain. There are few other players, for instance, who play Beethoven on the piano while wearing winter gear after particularly frustrating losses. During the Lakers' Game 1 loss to the Spurs, Bryant took to Twitter to share his observations of the game, exhorting his teammates to play better and suggesting strategies. He might have been a bit over-enthusiastic, but really, it's not as if Kobe keeps his opinions to himself while he's playing, either.

I see my tweeting during the game is being talked about as much as the game itself. Not my intention , just bored as I guess #notagain— Kobe Bryant (@kobebryant) April 21, 2013
Mike D'Antoni appeared to be joking when he was asked about Kobe's tweets in his postgame news conference, but did he disrespect his best player?
Kobe doesn't have a whole lot to do during the remaining Lakers games this season -- more tweets may be incoming.
