If Kobe Bryant is looking forward to playing with Lou Williams, Roy Hibbert, and Brandon Bass next season, he's not showing it.

Earlier today, the Lakers' free agent signings were introduced to the Los Angeles media. And after one reporter asked the three players whether or not they had heard from Kobe, it got quiet. Really quiet. PAINFULLY quiet.

We know you're busy playing soccer, Kobe. But you can't shoot a group text to your new teammates?!
