Kobe Bryant, who is known for connecting with his fans through social media, miscalculated when he posted his most recent Weibo, making himself a target for the jokes of thousands of netizens. The post said “It’s been awhile since I’ve last been on Weibo. I see there’s some new web lingo. Can you teach me some? What does “da tie” mean?” “Da tie” means to miss a shot, and netizens took the question as an opportunity to take jabs at Kobe, saying things like “It’s what happens when you shoot” and “It means you are an MVP.” It’s not clear weather the post was written by Kobe himself or a PR team.
