NBA Tweets of the Day: Trade Deadline Extravaganza
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 26, 2021.
Collective Sigh of Relief
Raptors fans are truly the LeBrons of preparing for the worst, but hoping for the best. And yesterday, like every trade deadline before, we panicked for no reason. Nothing like tradition!
Lemon Pepper Forever
Lou about to have them Magic City wings everyday— Josh Hart (@joshhart) March 25, 2021
Be careful what you wish for. In the case of Lou Williams, his proximity to Magic City basically cost him a chance at a title.
There are three players in the NBA named Gary and they’ve all been traded today: Gary Clark (ORL to DEN), Gary Harris (DEN to ORL), and Gary Trent Jr. (POR to TOR).— Sagar Trika (@BlazersBySagar) March 25, 2021
What a weird day for Gary’s. (Garies? Garys? Spencer, help me out.)
Portland Trail Blazers center Jusuf Nurkić will make his return to the lineup on Friday vs. Orlando. He's back from a right wrist fractured. Sources tell : Jusuf Nurkić— Jusuf Nurkić (@bosnianbeast27) March 25, 2021
Seems like everybody has sources these days. On a serious note, it will be so refreshing to see Nurk back with the Blazers on Friday and on his own accord.
One of these things is not like the other!

And then, there were none. Well not none, but it sure feels like almost the entire Magic squad got traded today, and none of them seemed too upset about it.
You’re Gonna Love Him
hello portland: you should know about apollo and odin https://t.co/De1RBn5w9c— James Herbert (@outsidethenba) March 26, 2021
It upsets me to see Norm leave, but I find comfort in the fact that he's going to Portland, who will surely appreciate the Instagram he runs for his dogs that includes captions that sound like they were written by the dogs (and birthday party photos).
Our Very Own
Congratulations and best wishes to BasketballNews.com’s very own Troy Brown Jr., who is headed to Chicago as the newest member of the Bulls. The Bulls were arguably the winners of this trade deadline, as they acquired not only Troy, but Nikola Vucevic, Al-Farouq Aminu, and Daniel Theis as they head towards a much-needed and highly anticipated upswing.
Roll up your sleeves everybody. For your friends, family & yourself . 👨👩👦👦 pic.twitter.com/k6z8K6Pvz8— jaren vaxon jr (@jarenjacksonjr) March 26, 2021
The temporary name change. The caption. The calm, cool, and collected photo. What a splash of joy on an otherwise nerve-wracking day.
