Without further ado, here are the tweets of the day for April 9, 2021.
True North Strong and Faithful
Only a canadian boy would want to willingly come to this hot mess of a team we’ve got right now 😂 God Bless his heart— Khudija A (@K_dot_ali) April 8, 2021
Khem Birch reportedly heading to the Toronto Raptors after parting ways with the Orlando Magic is the ultimate sign of loyalty. Ladies, get you a man who would do the same.
Ooh Na Na, What’s My Name?
LOL Rondo just referred to Chris Paul as, "Number 3 on the other team."— Shane Young (@YoungNBA) April 9, 2021
This rivalry has been ongoing for YEARS and shows no signs of slowing down. A Clippers-Suns playoff matchup? Don’t mind if I do.
Welcome to The Upside Down 🔥 https://t.co/qRxkQhfSjj— Indiana Fever ⛹️♀️🏀 (@IndianaFever) April 8, 2021
All of the WNBA jerseys released for the upcoming season are insanely good, but the Indiana Fever’s Stranger Things-inspired jerseys might take the cake for best jersey in the history of basketball. Who will wear number eleven?
Daddy’s Number One Candy Baby
The Warriors can now field a starting five of sons of fathers who played in the NBA: Curry, Thompson, Wiggins, Payton and Mannion. https://t.co/IOOaFFCdqw— Wes Goldberg (@wcgoldberg) April 8, 2021
Are we really this old? I mean, I’m not -- I’m practically an infant. But my goodness, this is fun and insane at the same time.
There Is So Much Wrong With Utah
On the Jazz broadcast a fan just lost a contest because they couldn't name three kinds of sandwiches.— Seth Allen (@sethbawl) April 9, 2021
Cheesesteak, peanut butter and jam, club sandwich, hot turkey sandwich, panini, submarine, smoked meat, reuben, bologna. How much do I win, and do I have to go to Utah to claim it?
I will say I do very much appreciate Fred VanVleet pausing for a moment to put on his mask before jumping onto the court to break up the scrum pic.twitter.com/nibpy2kq6I— 𝐀𝐚𝐫𝐨𝐧 𝐑𝐨𝐬𝐞 (@AaronBenRose) April 8, 2021
Fred’s suspension should be retroactively removed because he ensured the health and safety of those around him were a priority before stepping onto the court to assist with defusing Dennis Schröder’s temper tantrum.
