Each day, BasketballNews.com scours #NBATwitter to bring you the best tweets from the previous day. Some are insightful, some are just hilarious (so we had to include them).
Without further ado, here are the tweets of the day for March 12, 2021.
One year ago today, Boban Marjanović had 31 points and 17 assists against the Denver Nuggets. The league would shut down due to the fear of Boban attaining his true power.— /r/Mavericks (@redditmavericks) March 11, 2021
A super-charged Boban would have flipped the league on its head.
Passing the Torch
That’s it!!! I’ve seen enough. Build around Tony Bradley @sixers— Joel “Troel” Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) March 12, 2021
Joel Embiid is probably the NBA’s MVP of both basketball and trolling. Here he is, essentially sticking himself in the trade machine after Tony Bradley scored 14 points against the Chicago Bulls.
Put the Blame On Me
I missed on so many levels tonight— Esfandiar | Es (@JustEsBaraheni) March 12, 2021
I’m never tweeting again https://t.co/E5W0JeZrMJ
The Atlanta Hawks beating the Toronto Raptors by a single point on a Tony Snell buzzer-beating three was just...kismet, really.
I’m a simple woman. I see a puppy, it becomes the best tweet of the day.

I had to see this and feel wildly uncomfortable and now you do too.
Crunch Time Ky
"I've always said it throughout my career, I enjoy it more than anything else."— Matt Brooks (@MattBrooksNBA) March 12, 2021
-Kyrie Irving on the fourth quarter
The MVP chants weren’t for nye, as Kyrie’s 40 points gave the Nets a hefty win over the Boston Celtics. You merely adopted the dark. Kyrie was born in it, moulded by it.
Oh This Looks Fun
Anthony Edwards said he didn’t know it was a tradition to drench a coach in water after his first win. My favorite part of this is Ant realizing what’s happening a little too late, then proceeding to just pour a whole bottle over Finch’s head. pic.twitter.com/YhG1JU3HJC— Chris Hine (@ChristopherHine) March 12, 2021
Anthony Edwards is such a gem. My hope is that Minnesota is actually some sort of basketball Neverland, and he stays like this forever.
