Matt Bonner busts out “Red Mamba” shirt, Kobe Bryant loves it

The San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Lakers are in an intense battle in the first round of the NBA Playoffs.  The Lakers are without their fearless leader Kobe Bryant and it has shown during Game 1.  During an interview with Rick Fox, Matt Bonner showed off his “Red Mamba” shirt and you would think that Kobe Bryant would have gotten upset over an opponent being given a similar nickname.  Instead he took to Twitter to tell everyone how he felt.

The playoffs aren’t quite the same without Kobe Bryant in them, but he’s just as into the games as ever judging by his Twitter timeline.
