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 12, 2021.
Deer in the Headlights
there is just no reason giannis should be taking a charge against anyone lmbo https://t.co/dnvCoTAEIT— Karens In Paris (@NekiasNBA) January 12, 2021
It wasn't the most conventional poster of all time, but Aaron Gordon took flight and put it down over the Greek Freak. AG 1, Giannis 0.
Find the Cracks

D'Angelo Russell's Minnesota Timberwolves are having a rough go right now, but they did snap a seven-game skid against the San Antonio Spurs because of beautiful feeds like this one.
The Sunshine State
Siakam coming alive during the road trip only furthers my theory that he’s allergic to Florida.— i. (@_nopename) January 12, 2021
Wait, this tweet isn't about Kyle Lowry?
Is This a Video Game?
Seriously, the quality of these cameras are... scary. We're already in the future, folks.
NO FOX GIVEN

I just realized once kawhi leonard retires, we will never hear from him or see him again pic.twitter.com/ws2m95Flic— mink flow (@currypiston) January 11, 2021
Post-retirement Kawhi will probably take up a random sport like tennis in his leisure time. Or maybe golf -- imagine his exuberance after getting a hole-in-one. Simply an amazing picture.
"Off the Grid"

The NBA is doing its best to strengthen the current health and safety protocols to fend off COVID-19, but it's just taking over the league right now. Mr. Silver, there's a whole second-half of a schedule for postponed games. You know, you designed it!
Happy Birthday, X!
What better than a team win, chipping in eight points and blocking two shots to celebrate?
