The antisocial has become social #mambatweetsHe's tweeted 43-times since. Just after Christmas I said that fans shouldn't expect an official Kobe Bryant Twitter account when I wrote about his overtaking of the @nikebasketball handle for just a couple of days to help promote his recently launched Nike Zoom Kobe 8 shoes. Literally days after he was hash-tagging mambatweets via his own blue check mark.

"I'm just here to support (Gasol), he's a tremendous talent, he's had a great career, and I'm just here to support him and (help him) find his best. We've all been there. It's tough when things aren't going for you, and you're struggling a little bit.
You've just got to support him. Six months ago, he was unbelievable at the Olympics. It's still in there somewhere, and part of it is probably a bit of fatigue, a bit of injuries, and a bit of just trying to find his niche playing along side Dwight and myself and new guys."Anytime Gasol lacks toughness inside his unwanted yet opportunistic nickname "Gasoft" is an audible favorite. To give some perspective, Pau missed 8 games earlier this season due to knee tendinitis which retired WNBA L.A. Sparks legend Lisa Leslie later addressed on the air saying she often played through the same injury throughout her 12-year career.
