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 February 19, 2021.
The Future Is In Good Hands
February 18, 2021
Malachi Flynn may have only checked in for the final minutes of the game, but he became the most recent member of the NBA/G League Doubleheader Club, and the only player this season to have played in two games in one day.
She Doesn’t Even Go Here!
Just seen our assistant trainer face for the first time all season...didn’t know who the hell he was 🤷🏾♂️🤣😷— Chris Paul (@CP3) February 19, 2021

One NBA player voted for Klay Thompson to start in the All-Star Game despite the fact that he's out with a torn Achilles. The fans voting for Klay is one thing, but a PLAYER?! I wonder who it was.— Alex Kennedy (@AlexKennedyNBA) February 19, 2021
Who is the one player that voted for an injured Klay Thompson to start the All-Star Game? Wrong answers only. I’m gonna say Rodney McGruder.
