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 12, 2021.
What Holiday Is This Again?
Me helping my friends plan our their Valentine's Days pic.twitter.com/wD5UziWlOv— NBA Girl (@NiceSheehan) February 11, 2021
You know what my big plans are for this weekend? Watching a 10-game slate of NBA hoops on the first Sunday without football, and I'm just fine with it!
You Make Me Smile
all i want for valentines day is for someone to look at me the way stanley looks at pascal. pic.twitter.com/KCMjVc6AfQ— din (@klooowry) February 12, 2021
Stanley Johnson's expression towards an unassuming Pascal Siakam is reminiscent of all the girls in Ms. Vaughn's third-grade class being smitten over Billy Madison. Alright, got that reference in there -- enough of this V-Day stuff...
It stopped snowing in Portland but....Dame must not have gotten the memo because....he’s....ice cold? Or no because the Sixers are facing some....inclement weather? Or no like...it stopped snowing in Portland but it’s still raining 3s in Moda!!!!! Right guys hahahahhaha— Blazers Legend Ashtyn Butuso (@lil_buts) February 12, 2021
Damian Lillard started last night's game with 19 points in the first quarter, then all of a sudden couldn't hit water if he fell out of a boat. Luckily, Carmelo Anthony went vintage against Philly and carried the load in the fourth quarter.
White Are You Asking?
Houston reporter asked Jimmy Butler what it's like to be surrounded by players like Tyler Herro, Duncan Robinson and Max Strus.— Tim Reynolds (@ByTimReynolds) February 12, 2021
"You basically just named all the white guys on our team, which I love you for that," Butler said. "We've got some good players, man. I'm telling you."
Really gritty guys, man. First ones in, last ones out. Gym rats, I'll tell ya. Not too athletic, but a lot of skill.
Sure, we'll go with "politics." Although, the race is extremely close right now because LeBron continues to age backwards.
Put Some Respect on JTA
Hi, I’m Steph’s teammate 🙋🏽♂️, my names Juan. https://t.co/Rmjv7rsI6E— Juan Toscano Anderson (@juanonjuan10) February 12, 2021
Blatantly disrespecting a player who's started the last five games for the Warriors for some cheap humor? Nah. Like Draymond Green said a couple weekends ago, "I'm rockin' with Juan T."
Ben Simmons kept Damian Lillard scoreless for over 20 minutes tonight.— The Phifth Quarter (@The_PhifthQ) February 12, 2021
DPOY goes to Ben Simmons.
Simmons invaded Dame's space and dared him to get past him. He really couldn't do it.
Not So Fast, Big Baller
If I say Melo I’m ALWAYS talking about Carmelo Anthony... ALWAYS— Morgann Mitchell (@THE_Morgann) February 12, 2021
You've got to earn your stripes in this league, LaMelo -- there's only one and will only ever be one Me7o.
