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 11, 2021.
You Have Unlocked a New Character
Kawhi goes down with what appears to be something serious then pops up immediately like 2k when injuries are off pic.twitter.com/wwV0VKEtv0— Dom2K🏀🎄🎁 (@Dom_2k) January 10, 2021
Every year Kawhi Leonard provides more and more proof that he is actually a video game character. He went down like he got hit by a Koopa shell and just popped back up through a green tunnel.
“Who will give Matt Thomas minutes?”— Peggy K. (@howangryareyou) January 11, 2021
I love a good use of a Rick Ross clip. My bucket list is to eat at every fast food restaurant Rick Ross has ever rapped about. I don’t love Nick Nurse’s outright and vocal refusal to play Matt Thomas, ever, in any capacity. You can’t tell me that everyday he is not hustlin’.
Your Hair Looks Sexy Pushed Back
De’Aaron Fox & OG Anunoby always giving each other hair care tips. Too cute. De’Aaron trying to convince OG the other night that his new low maintenance ‘do is the way to go pic.twitter.com/WRPKvFzF7s— OG's Scarf (@OGsHeadband1) January 10, 2021
This is what girls do when they go to the bathroom together.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is from Hamilton, Ontario
The Escarpment Shuffle https://t.co/07KQSFh8IV— Blake Murphy (@BlakeMurphyODC) January 11, 2021
If you make a reference to Hamilton, Ontario, it’s going to be a tweet of the day. I didn’t make the rules (I did).
I’m Good Luv...Enjoy
I’m chillin. I can still watch my last championship win HD. https://t.co/60xfpLs6qv— Pascal Truther (@premekee) January 11, 2021
Celtics fans are holding onto their 2008 championship like a helicopter parent. That championship is about to enter high school! Let it go!
All Bark, All the Time
I’m always here for someone disrespecting a Morrii. https://t.co/uF2BnTO1JE— Matt Shantz (@m_shantz) January 11, 2021
One day the Morrii will realize that their actions, mainly the unnecessary contact that could often result in serious injuries, have consequences. Yesterday was not that day. Please try again tomorrow.
Hey How You Doin’ Lil Mama Lemme Whisper In Ya Ear
What is he saying? Wrong answers only.
Hey Big Head
The image of Masai hitting former Raptor Jonas Valanciunas with a “you up?” in the middle of a game perfectly encompasses everything the Raptors are going through right now. Don’t Know What You Got ('Till It’s Gone) plays softly in the background. The Janet Jackson version.
Dunkin’ Balls and Dunkin’ Cookies
If I ever got hired as Blazers announcer the first time Dame scored I would say "Call him mac-a-DAME-ia, cause he's NUTS!" and my body would ascend into heaven, leaving Lamar Hurd in quite the pickle— Seth Allen (@sethbawl) January 8, 2021
I would also throw “CJ McCollyomama!!!!” into the equation.
NBA teams don’t take pics like they used to pic.twitter.com/RTuTwi12ob— Uncle Drew © (@UncleDrewGB) January 10, 2021
This season is weird. Can you at least make it fun, Mr. Silver?
Zach LaVine is the 3rd player in Bulls history to record at least 10 40-point games, joining Michael Jordan and Bob Love.— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) January 10, 2021
Jordan had 165. Love had 13. pic.twitter.com/3l0mqHt0iK
Somewhere, quietly, in the Windy City, Zach LaVine is quietly leading the revival of the Chicago Bulls franchise. We’re stormin’ the NBA. It’s a revolution.
You Wouldn’t Like It, It’s Spicy
"you have to get something for lowry while you can" cool i'll take 64 more games of him in a raptors uniform & the chance to re-sign him in the offseason thx— Joe Wolfond (@joey_doubleyou) January 9, 2021
In 2007 we had “Leave Britney Alone” and in 2020, we have “Leave Kyle Alone” because trading Kyle Lowry is a very dumb idea. Forcing him into retirement is a very dumb idea. Getting as much Kyle Lowry as you possibly can before the world ends is a very good idea.
What’s My Age Again?
Tatum tested positive for Only-19?— 𝙅𝙪𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙣 𝙍𝙤𝙬𝙖𝙣 🇨🇦 (@Cavsanada) January 9, 2021
COVID-19 isn’t funny. Jayson-Tatum-is-only-19 jokes are always funny. It’s called balance.
The Gang Misses the Mark
Why does Philly put "Phila" on their jerseys instead of "Philly" ?— Samson Folk (@samfolkk) January 9, 2021
Why not end this weekend recap in a fit of rage? JUST PUT PHILLY!
