Ball Don't Lie

I just knew Kobe Bryant was going to tweet about this:

Zing.

Dwight put the same photo on Instagram, too, so you know the Los Angeles Lakers guard and center, not to mention embattled head coach Mike D'Antoni, are a totally unified front just having some LOLs at how all the outsiders are getting everything wrong. Add this to the list of reasons to be somewhat skeptical of the initial report that Bryant and Howard nearly came to blows after a New Year's Day loss, and the list of reasons it's nice to have Kobe engaging us with relevant content via social media outlets.

(Unless, of course, Kobe's kidding on the square and scissor-kicked Howard's injured shoulder just after the picture was snapped. With the Mamba, you can never rule out a surprise strike.)
