The NBA trade deadline has come and gone, and while the Los Angeles Lakers failed to trade Pau Gasol or Jordan Hill, the clutches of the trade deadline grabbed hold of someone and dragged him to the depths. Steve Blake was traded late on Wednesday night to the Golden State Warriors and not everyone is happy about it.
Obviously the Warriors are thrilled, but Blake’s now former teammate Kobe Bryant is not so tickled. Kobe took to Twitter to vent his frustration over the Steve Blake trade.

Bryant isn’t going to demand a trade or anything that because of the move, rather we’re finally seeing some true and unfiltered frustration from Kobe over how this season has gone. Kobe Bryant is a winner, he doesn’t lose and his team never sells at the deadline. Those last two things are very true of this season and it’s clearly taking a toll on Kobe.
