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 22, 2021.
How I like the Raptors roster 🤝 How I like possible marriage prospects— Vred FanFleets (@nasimali) February 22, 2021
There is a very big divide between Raptors fans who would like to pursue DeMarcus Cousins and Raptors fans who would not. This is one way to say that you’re on the “I’m good luv...enjoy,” side, I guess.
And Who Are You Again?
I saw you and was wondering who you were sitting with! 🤷🏼♀️— Dawn Crane (@dawncrane524) February 21, 2021
Las Vegas Aces forward Dearica Hamby and New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara, both former Norcross Blue Devils, attended the Celtics-Pelicans game on Sunday. While ESPN failed to mention Dearica sitting right beside Kamara, Dawn had no idea who Alvin was, with her eyes going directly to Hamby.
Why Do Men
and what league did you make it to?? https://t.co/TEuaPPy2o3— Lexie Brown (@lexiekiah_4) February 20, 2021
Men who have zero accolades besides their names sure love to tell professional basketball players, who also happen to be women, how much better they are than the ones who do this for a living. Sir, if Lexie had a blindfold and one arm she would still have you on skates without breaking a sweat. Please sit down and humble yourself.
Yuta Only Girl I’m Talking To

It’s going to happen and it’s only a matter of time.
Penny For Your Thoughts
My @Venmo campaign has officially ended this morning! With your help we raised— Myles Turner (@Original_Turner) February 22, 2021
$25,395.86! With my match that’s $50,791.72 plus the @TheNBPA match equates to a
GRAND TOTAL OF
THANK YALL so much!!! the funds will be going to multiple charities! #TexasForever
When a fan sent a $100 Venmo request to Myles Turner after the team lost to the Chicago Bulls, Turner instead sent the fan a single cent, a penny for his thoughts. The exchange turned into hundreds of fans sending Turner “their two cents” and Turner decided to match all of the nickels and dimes sent to him over the weekend, in an effort to provide relief efforts for those affected by the winter storm in his home state of Texas. The NBPA also matched the donations, and as of Monday, Turner and his fans have raised $76,187.58. Not bad for a troll job.
Is This Your King?
Bill Simmons said the Raptors wouldn't make the playoffs this year and they currently have a better record than the Celtics lmao what a dumb loser— Marx Gasol (@socialistraptor) February 22, 2021
Bill Simmons coming completely unraveled because his beloved Celtics are not the greatest team to ever touch the hardwood is a car wreck that you simply can’t look away from. Imagine being this wrong all the time?
Lol I got hit in the face by the ball today. That’s karma from my letting yuta get dunked on. I’ll take it 🤣🤣 Good wins guys!! No splits 🤞🏾— Deandre Bembry (@fearthefro95) February 22, 2021
DeAndre’ Bembry’s face did not have a good night on Sunday. First an elbow from Ben Simmons, then getting a ball to the face. Bembry acknowledges that this is a small price to pay for leaving Yuta Watanabe alone in the trenches, though.
Can I Copy Your Homework? "Yeah, Just Change It Up A Bit"
The Clippers stole a few Raptors coaches, their entire flow, bar-for-bar, two of their players and are trying to poach their star point guard. The Pacers hired Toronto assistant coach Nate Bjorkgren to lead the team. And now, literally minutes after a win over the 76ers, the Minnesota Timberwolves hired assistant coach Chris Finch to replace Ryan Saunders. If you can’t beat ‘em, just do everything they do, I guess.
