HE HAS not uttered one word yet, but Kobe Bryant’s mere presence on a Twitter-like Chinese-language site has stirred plenty of excitement.

Sina Weibo has verified that the NBA superstar has set up an individual account on its hugely popular microblogging site.

Bryant’s followers numbered more than 100,000 within hours yesterday, although no comments from Bryant had appeared.

Bryant is widely known and extremely popular in China, rivaling hometown star Yao Ming.
