Leave it to Kobe Bryant to be a straight shooter and tell it like it is at all times.
Tuesday night, while watching the Cleveland Cavaliers pull off a 96-91 victory over the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals was one of those times.
The five-time NBA champion took to his Twitter account to offer this spot-on thought.

Could Kobe have said it any better? The Warriors are flat out the better, deeper team and have MVP Stephen Curry, but yet have struggled with their offense against the hard-nosed defense of LeBron James's Cavs. That's precisely why Cleveland now has a 2-1 series lead.
But Bryant wasn't done with merely offering that.
When ESPN reporter Ramona Shelbourne tweeted Bryant, "Sometimes it takes the pain of losing a Finals before you can win one. I've always wondered why," Kobe responded by saying, "Me 2."
When another Twitter follower tweeted that "@KingJames is taking some very @kobebryant shots I love it," Bryant retorted.
Off these comments alone, we hope Kobe keeps tweeting throughout the Finals.
