Kobe Bryant gets how Twitter works

At the end of the day Kobe Bryant is just like any psychotically over-competitive person. He enjoys displaying his dominance in every way both on and off the basketball court at every single possible opportunity.

Last week Mark Cuban took the liberty of hosing down Kobe’s competitive fire with about 400 gallons of gasoline. Cuban told a Dallas radio station that the Lakers should consider using its amnesty clause on Bryant, who is set to make $30.5 million next year.

Cuban backed tried to downplay what he said, saying “it was just an example,” but it was too late.

Kobe spent the 38 minutes and 16 seconds he played gutting Cuban’s Dallas Mavericks. The Black Mamba dropped 38 points on 13 of 21 shooting, shot 4 of 5 from three, grabbed 11 rebounds and was good for seven dimes. A nice line to say the least as the Lakers pulled out the 103-99 road win.

But it’s what Kobe did after the win that was so very Kobe.

So solid. The win and 38 points was great. But the efficient two-word tweet — which, when decoded, reads “SUCK ON THAT CUBAN!!!” — was one for the ages.

The tweet has been retweeted over 53,000 times and favorited nearly 25,000 times.

Even Cuban had to give credit where it was due.

Followed an hour later by:

Just a great use of the medium by Kobe. The only thing I take from this is Kobe should no longer talk to people. He should only tweet and on the court he’s allowed to hiss like a snake still.
