In wake of his recent struggles, Kobe Bryant declared via Twitter before yesterday’s loss that he would in fact be re-watching his best regular season performance ever and tweeting throughout, in celebration of its seven-year anniversary:
Letting u know that tmr I’m gonna watch my 81 game for first time @nbatv 1pst.I will be tweeting during. Time to rest and focus now#win

You heard it straight from the source, folks. If you want an update on just exactly what the NBA’s notoriously most self-interested player has to say, tune in to Fansided after the game.
Even better, you can follow me at @DamianTrilliard for a live-tweeting of Kobe’s live-tweets.
I don’t think many people took Kobe Bryant to be the kind to bear his emotions on Twitter, but since he joined just under three weeks ago, the Black Mamba has given fans plenty to talk about. If information technology has turned the NBA in to a place where Kobe Bryant vents about his personal frustrations and JR Smith can turn a Nets win in to a Nets loss, imagine what will happen when the commissioner decides to join.
If fans have learned anything over the years, it’s that Kobe Bryant’s motivation can be triggered by just about anything. Moreover, what do the last few days of Twitter-NBA action say about what’s to come in the future? Will David Stern have to start fining players for tweeting too much?
Tell us what you think about this. Is Kobe’s latest stunt just a self-indulgent act or could it legitimately give him the fuel he needs?
