Lakers News: Kobe Bryant Blacks Out Twitter Avatar

Kobe Bryant TwitterOver the past few months, Kobe Bryant has sent subtle messages to his fans and the world about what’s going on in the mind of the five-time NBA champion by changing his Twitter avatar.

Recently, Kobe changed his avatar to 1225. Many believe the change was to indicate either his return date to the basketball floor for the Los Angeles Lakers or a motivational tactic after ESPN predicted the Lakers would finish 12th in the West and that he was now the 25th best player in the NBA.

On Tuesday morning, Kobe was at it a again with his cryptic messages via his Twitter avatar. Instead of the 1225, which many thought would remain his avatar until he returned, the future Hall of Famer blacked out the avatar completely and then tweeted the following:

As of right now, Kobe is expected to return sometime in the next few weeks after ramping up his conditioning in an effort to get into game shape. The “blackout” Kobe is referring to may be the training program he’s doing and this is an indication that it has kicked into high gear. The superstar guard made many feel as if it would only be two more weeks until he’d be suiting up for the Lakers, but this subtle message will have people wondering if he’s suffered a setback or is about to announce something. As usual, Kobe keeps the basketball world in suspense as his return draws near. It’ll be interesting to see what the meaning of his avatar means and if it indicates a setback, ramping up his training and conditioning or something completely different. ________________________________________________________________________________
