What was life like before Kobe Bryant got on Twitter and Instagram? Seriously. Does anyone out there remember?!?

We don't. And that's probably because KB24 does something awesome on social media almost every single day. Whether it's posting a photo of his Achilles during surgery or responding to a claim made by Phil Jackson, Kobe knows how to use the World Wide Web to his advantage. And he proved it once again last night by posting a photo of himself in a Charlotte Hornets hat in honor of the Bobcats changing their name back to the Hornets.

We bet all of the Charlotte fans out there were thrilled to see this. Haven't they suffered enough in recent years, Kobe?
