NBA Tweets of the Day: February 1, 2021

Each day, 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 1, 2021.

Shooters Shoot (From Wherever)

Free-throw shooting is the strangest argument in basketball analysis, because if it goes in, who cares? More players should shoot underhand, and more should shoot from a completely different area code like Dwight Howard.

Role Model

Layshia Clarendon has always been a role model, from using their position on the WNBA’s Social Justice Council, to never letting the conversation about the tragic death of Breonna Taylor and so many other Black women be forgotten, to now sharing with the entire world -- a world that can be cruel and unforgiving to things they don’t understand -- their decision to undergo top surgery in an effort to live a more authentic life.

If Your Girl Says Hey to Me, That’s Our Girl Now

It’s a good thing that arenas aren’t open to the public, because Walt Frazier getting his ‘fit on while looking happy as a clam doing it would distract every fan in attendance.

Whoop De Doo, Basil

Vernon Maxwell using retirement to consistently dunk on the Utah Jazz is my favorite retired player venture.

This Is A Larry Nance Jr. Fan Account

How can we be sure though? Who is asking the question? Who is convinced they can outrun a lion?

All I Need Is One Mic

Never has Rodney McGruder’s name been mentioned so much in a single weekend.

The Creation of Adam Damian



More teammates should kiss each other, in my opinion. Normalize kissing your friends gently on the head after their successes.

Lip Sync For Your Life

This wasn’t the first rodeo featuring both Kyle Lowry and Aaron Gordon, nor was it the only one where Kyle’s lips can clearly be read.

Catch Me Outside

The same way that more players should kiss, more players should also be allowed to throw a punch or two outside of the game so that serious injuries (and flagrant fouls) don’t occur during the game.

He Shoulda Been Hoopin’ Instead of Killin’ People

Slenderman is just the newest addition to the “First-Team Should Have Hooped” roster.

Seven Seconds Or Less

The Brooklyn Nets have the worst defensive rating in the NBA, but this is just insane. Beal’s shot was understandable, but the scrambling on the inbounds that allowed Westbrook’s was...a choice.

Teacher’s Pet

This is what being the oldest sibling is like.

Buckle Up Buckaroos

47 points, 12 rebounds, 5 assists, and about a 75% chance that he would actually pull up to the arena like this.


Emotions rarely show up on the stat sheet, except for technical fouls and ejections, but the case of Pascal Siakam is probably more common than the average fan thinks.

They Think I’m Cute

As a Raptors fan, opposing teams taking notice of Yuta makes me uneasy, but this whole thread is so wholesome. (But please don’t steal him)

We Believe In Yu

Yuta Watanabe’s parents supporting his dreams makes his glee at being on the scouting sheet even more adorable.
