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 January 18, 2021.
That’s Mr. Six-Time All Star to You, Sir
oh hellllll no 😂😂 pic.twitter.com/Ff99Cf6TZ0— 🌿✨ (@eimielleimi) January 17, 2021
This may be more disrespectful than the Anthony Davis clip last week.
Go Thibbsy, It’s Your Birthday
What’s better than a win on your birthday? A 30-point win over the Boston Celtics, probably.
The New York Knicks have defeated the Boston Celtics 105-75, their largest margin of victory since 2016 (31) and the highest vs. the Celtics since 1997 (32).— Fifth Quarter Stats (@FQStats) January 17, 2021
This was the fewest points the Celtics had scored in a game since putting up just 72 points against the Hawks in 2016. pic.twitter.com/vLR6EBcGVA
All season we’ve been calling the Knicks' success a fluke due to small sample size, but the stats are starting to prove that they may be the real deal? I don’t know what to do with this information, and I’m not even a Knicks fan.
Teamwork Makes the Dream Work
Fun fact: James Harden has the same amount of triple-doubles with the Nets (1) as Kawhi Leonard has throughout his entire NBA career (1). 🤯 pic.twitter.com/685qL8nluv— Slam Studios (@SlamStudios) January 17, 2021
James Harden had 32 points, 14 assists and 12 rebounds in his Nets debut Saturday night. Assists. As in, sharing the ball with someone else on the team. As in passing.
A Very Scary GOAT
Compare, for example, the Diana Taurasi approach:https://t.co/sSlMduQ1yA— Rob Centa (@RobCenta) January 18, 2021
This was from the Wubble, but it was brought back up in response to Mike Malone’s disagreement with a referee. Diana Taurasi is incredible, but she is also terrifying (in the best way).
Larry Nice Jr.
We’ll take care of him! Good people are always welcome here! https://t.co/5h7pnn7jnO— Larry Nance Jr (@Larrydn22) January 17, 2021
Larry Nance Jr., who was recently on "The Alex Kennedy Podcast," has promised to take care of sweet baby Jarrett Allen after he was sent to Cleveland in the James Harden trade. Larry’s recent initiative to bring awareness to small businesses in Cleveland put him in contention for nicest player in the league, and he is quickly climbing up the ranks. Why is this not an award? Maybe BasketballNews.com will hand it out at the end of the season.
bill kennedy needs to be an in arena announcer pic.twitter.com/7rGYrllAdP— blackdragonroll (@blackdragonroll) January 17, 2021
The benefit of empty arenas is that we were all treated to the fresh-silky-sheets-fresh-out-of-the-wash feeling that comes with hearing Bill Kennedy explain a call. Maybe when his refereeing career is over, he can do audio books? Positive affirmations? Children's books?
It’s Called Fashion, Sweety. Look it Up
James cosplaying as Anne of Green Gables makes me believe the punisher mask was truly done because he thought it looked cool pic.twitter.com/L7EcwrzvWw— i. (@_nopename) January 17, 2021
This shirt is available in every maternity store across the world, no matter the season. Most expectant mothers don’t drop a triple-double, though.
Get My Good Side
Some of you don’t know to work your angles and it shows https://t.co/CHSyFiOa36— Ashley Docking (@SmrtAsh) January 16, 2021
James Harden catfished his way into a trade and reminded all of us that powder blue is not flattering on anyone.
It’s Never Too Early for Ice Cream, Jim
It’s still on Canadian Netflix just saying babe https://t.co/rgdB2g455j— Kendra (@Kendrawacharge) January 16, 2021
Toronto may have missed out on the Giannis sweepstakes, but that doesn’t mean they can’t put their hat in the ring for Donovan Mitchell... 2026.
Fumble the Bag
my friends watching me flirt https://t.co/rZ1ePSeY87— Seerat Sohi (@seeratsohi) January 16, 2021
One time years ago, my friend and I were having a night out. A pair of guys approached us and asked if we had any plans for the rest of the night, to which I excitedly told them, “No, because we already went to Burger King!” They left, but the memory did not.
So Bad It’s Good
Guys, remember when you complain about Denver not having wings. We're the Denver Nuggets, not the Denver Wings.— CJ (@CJenkins_Wx) January 16, 2021
I can’t tell if this is a dad joke or one of the jokes my kids tell that I have to pretend to laugh at.
I Don’t Know Her
This like asking Rita Ora to be more like Rihanna. https://t.co/7sDJL2V3Ol— i. (@_nopename) January 15, 2021
Imman with another banger. It’s like when people say Ariana Grande is the next Mariah Carey when there is only one and will only ever be one Mariah Carey. Thank u, next.
Rudy Gay and Boogie found a way to greet each other before the game 😅 pic.twitter.com/vNAsPvOexH— SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) January 15, 2021
Watching players find new ways to greet one another may be as exciting as the tunnel ‘fits.
