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 6, 2021.
For the ones who missed it or just simply want to see this exclamation point to the first half over and over.— Chris Milholen (@CMilholenSB) January 6, 2021
Jarrett Allen packing it over Rudy Gobert.
In our first week of BasketballNews.com's fantasy basketball league, I have to go toe-to-toe against our very own Alex Kennedy. Luckily for me, I drafted Jarrett Allen and he did not. Sorry, Alex.
Bird’s Eye View
Oh come on Jokic 🃏— George Jarjour (@GeorgeOnTap) January 6, 2021
What if point-centers are the future of positionless basketball? What if teams realize that being gigantic means you can see over top of everyone else on the court? What if we just…. cloned Nikola Jokic 30 times and had one on each team?
Every Day is Christmas
Asked Anthony Edwards where his advanced feel for the game comes from.— jace frederick (@JaceFrederick) January 5, 2021
"I'm smarter than people think, and when teams start to realize that, then they'll start to lock in on me more when I'm coming off the screen. I'm smarter than a lot of people think, I just look like this."
Anthony Edwards is the gift that keeps on giving. Everything he says is so unintentionally hilarious, and if basketball, rapping or football don’t work out, he could have a very successful reality TV show where he just… exists.
New Max Contract, Who Dis?
Just wait til the 4th quarter. That’s when Jazz will play with urgency and only lose by 5— Hallie-Oop (@hallieg99) January 6, 2021
This is the realistic kind of hope that Jazz fans need for the rest of the season -- never too high and never too low. (Sidenote: I also have Donovan Mitchell on my fantasy team, making this the only reason I will ever root for the Utah Jazz).
Open For A Surprise
Look, if it’s cute, it’s going up here. This kid doesn’t realize how lucky he is. I asked for a Lite-Brite every year of my childhood and here he is, happy as a clam, not knowing there are other NBA teams out there.
Gorgui on Wheels
from the moment i saw gorgui dieng bicycle past my house one night at 10 PM, i knew he was destined for great things— Molly Morrison (@mollyhannahm) January 6, 2021
I have so many questions. Was he wearing a helmet? Did it have a basket? Can he ride with no hands? Molly, please come on "Dishes and Dimes."
Substitute Teacher Vibes
Spurs are currently going through a layup line where they're each competing against each other to do a between-the-legs windmill. It's nasty.— Justin Russo (@FlyByKnite) January 6, 2021
I can almost guarantee that Gregg Popovich was not present for this portion of the warmups. The baby Spurs are FUN this year. They might even have conversations for the first time in team history.
In Case You Missed It
This is just to rub it in Alex’s face one more time.
