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 April 1, 2021.
Oh Captain, My Captain
hops are okay... but why he ain’t play defense! 👀— Jusuf Nurkić (@bosnianbeast27) March 30, 2021
Nurk has only recently returned to play, but is already letting his teammates know what is what. He really seems like the perfect teammate, and is always DTHAB (Down To Hold A Baby).
Sweet Like Maple Syrup
May we all be lucky to find someone who’s there for us like Dort is for SGA pic.twitter.com/OCrwQo8GgR— Miri (@__Miri__) March 30, 2021
Just two perfect Canadian boys, exceeding expectations, being the best of friends, helping each other through vaccinations.
Reunited and It Feels So Good
The new Boban-Tobias Goldfish commercial. Too good. pic.twitter.com/3AwfndisaC— Michael Gallagher (@MikeSGallagher) March 30, 2021
Bobi and Tobi together again. I’m not 7-foot-4, but this is also how I eat Goldfish crackers.
Most Valuable Teammate
Damn bro. The kid just woke up on his bday. U gotta relax https://t.co/y90Fk3yajs— Juan Toscano Anderson (@juanonjuan10) March 31, 2021
Juan Toscano-Anderson is quickly climbing the ranks of “Players You’re Lucky to Have On Your Team,” and he is absolutely right. Wiseman’s rookie season isn’t exactly normal, and his birthday isn’t the appropriate time to hate on him for….not...being...a teenager anymore?
“Don’t Worry, I Got Us…”
Gary Trent Jr saw Norm’s Players Tribune piece and said hold my beer 😂— alexis (@piptal) April 1, 2021
First of all, if you haven’t read Norman Powell’s farewell piece for The Player’s Tribune, then you need to stop everything you’re doing immediately and read it. Second of all, Gary Trent Jr. has a new career-high of 31 points in just his fourth game as a Toronto Raptor. It was a good trade for everyone.
Daigneault For You
Are we sure OKCs coach isnt just Nathan Fielder under that mask— a. :( PS5 OWNER (@Swarlayzers) April 1, 2021
Have you ever seen Mark Daigneault and Nathan Fielder in the same room? Exactly.
PfICEr In My Veins
D.Lo should really lean into this. There are so many ideas swimming in my brain right now. Have your people contact my people, Mr. Russell.
“Baynes unable to finish” is starting to sound a lot like “When this pandemic is over..”— Mya (@lowrywatanabe) April 1, 2021
Aside from the ones he scored on his own basket, Aron Baynes had 0 points and 2 rebounds last night. Canada has the means to vaccinate all of their residents and just isn’t. Who messed up more? I don’t know, I’m just laughing to keep from crying.
