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 14, 2021.
Ball Don’t Lie
Career Usage Rate calculates the percentage of team plays a specific player was involved in. With Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden all nearing 30% -- nearly 10% higher than the average player -- it will be interesting to see how they work out together.
Too Many Cooks Spoil The Broth

This is a very accurate description of what the Nets' front office could be feeling right now, especially with a team that is being coached by *vibes*.
Old Tweets, Same Sentiment
Congrats to my new teammate James Harden— Kevin Durant (@KDTrey5) June 26, 2009
It seems like every situation has an old KD tweet to go with it. I’m always curious about who finds them first, and how.
We don’t deserve Steven Adams pic.twitter.com/x9UNMhJ6U7— Simon Hampton (@SimonHampton9) January 13, 2021
Steven Adams is the most interesting and least problematic basketball player -- no, person-- on earth. Everything he does off the court is as perfect as every time he catches an opposing player who is about to fall.
Houston strip clubs about to fly James Harden's jersey at half-mast this week— sreekar (@sreekyshooter) January 13, 2021
We joke a lot about James Harden and dancers, but I’m sure he got a fair number of them through a really difficult year in their industry. Some people start worm farms, some keep strip clubs afloat.
My Finger Slipped
The NBA is incredible lol pic.twitter.com/ESTmTOLNAF— Amit Mann (@Amit_Mann) January 14, 2021
James Harden did say he loved the city of Houston, so there is reason to believe he will be back...for the scenery.
My My, How the Turntables
Kyrie didn’t want to be Robin for Lebron but now he is Alfred for KD and Harden— Kendrick’s Burner ➐ (@KendrickPBurner) January 14, 2021
Crazy how life works...
In his defense, Alfred is the only truly likable character from Batman. The difference though, is that Alfred just keeps his head down and does his job.
How Lebron was when he found out James Harden went to the Nets 🏀🤣💀 pic.twitter.com/BK9bb48nze— Mark Phillips (@SupremeDreams_1) January 14, 2021
LeBron either had absolutely no reaction, or it was exactly like this one. There is no in between.
100% From the Field

discussing nets haul
A good pun will always make the list (I’ve been laughing for 12 hours).
The Red Wedding
Pelicans sophomore Nickeil Alexander-Walker was outstanding against the Clippers.— Alex Kennedy (@AlexKennedyNBA) January 14, 2021
NAW finished with 37 points, 8 rebounds, 5 threes, 1 steal and 1 turnover while shooting 15-23 from the field, 5-8 from three and 2-2 from the free-throw line). pic.twitter.com/wADaG622Lh
Once upon a time, the Los Angeles Clippers traded away their entire future, including Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (from Hamilton, Ontario) for Paul George. Last night, Nickeil Alexander-Walker, the cousin of the young star, avenged him. The Lannisters send their regards.
The Mavs are 4-0 since starting Willie Cauley-Stein. pic.twitter.com/ICfAhS6cml— StatMuse (@statmuse) January 14, 2021
In my professional opinion, Willie Cauley-Stein is one of the coolest players in the NBA, and it’s great to finally see his impact on display.
