Kobe Bryant plays it straight on Twitter after being shut down for season

When Mamba is sad, we all suffer.

Kobe Bryant hasn’t been on Twitter that long, but he has mastered the art of sending out captivating, memorable messages in 140 characters or less.

For instance, he sent this tweet out after his first ankle injury in March of 2013.

When he re-injured the ankle a month later, he came out firing.

When he broke his left knee in December, he kept it short and sweet.

However, with news coming down on Wednesday that Bryant would miss the remainder of the season, Kobe was much more subdued and straightforward when he took to Twitter in the afternoon.
