"It's not every day you get to live tweet with a five-time champion," he wrote at the outset. "Welcome."
He then tapped out all sorts of thoughts.
At one point, he got sentimental, writing, "This game was the 1st and only game my grandma has seen me play as a pro, On my late grandfather's bday no less."
At another point, he saw teammate Luke Walton on the screen and typed, "Luke, the only white boy with a jerry curl"
He even criticized his own shooting, writing, "Watching the game now, the easy shots I missed, I could of had 100 pts."
Bryant finished 28-for-46 from the field, including 7-for-13 from beyond the arc, and was a deadly 18-for-20 from the line.
As usual, he didn't pass much, finishing with two assists, a fact he addressed with this comment:
"Down 14, I'm heating up . . . at this point I wouldn't pass a kidney stone."
First, and last
Call it coincidence. Call it fate. Either way, it's interesting.
At the year's Super Bowl, Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis will be playing his last NFL game while being reminded of his first NFL sack.
Lewis is retiring after a 17-year career, all with Baltimore. When he looks across the field he'll see San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, the first quarterback Lewis ever sacked.
It was the sixth game of the 1996 season and Harbaugh was calling signals for the Indianapolis Colts, who won the game, 26-21.
