Kobe takes subtle jab at NBA during All Star Weekend

Think Kobe Bryant is still mad about not having Chris Paul as his point guard in a Lakers uniform?

Bryant subtly ripped the NBA right before the All-Star game on Sunday when he tweeted out a picture of Chris Paul’s son and his daughter Natalia and included this message:

If case you forgot what Kobe is referring to, the Lakers had acquired Chris Paul from the Hornets, but Commissioner David Stern and the rest of the NBA owners, who was running the team at the time, vetoed the deal last moment and sent Paul to the Clippers.

The Lakers wound up trading for Dwight Howard instead and are now 10th in the Western Conference at 25-29, while Paul’s Clippers are 39-17.
