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 29, 2021.
I Would Rather Forget, Thank You
Remember when Sting was the halftime performance for the ASG in Toronto? Who thought that was a good idea 😭😭😭— proposition moe (@VtecPapi) January 29, 2021
Every time All-Star Weekend in Toronto is brought up, I feel it is my civic duty to tell anyone who will listen that it ISN’T ALWAYS THAT COLD. I can’t explain Sting though, I’m sorry.
A Tale As Old As Time
So they are definitely making the playoffs. https://t.co/33I2Vz7SMB— Lliw Droffats (@LowryAngeles) January 29, 2021
The general rule of the NBA is that if Paul Pierce publicly states that you aren’t making the playoffs, you usually head to the Finals. It is a tried and true method, and who are we to argue with the NBA Gods?
Hindsight is Twenty-Twenty One
Lob city was so fun. https://t.co/zgVG5nqeJA— i. (@_nopename) January 29, 2021
The Los Angeles Clippers could use Chris Paul and whatever is left of Blake Griffin right now (with the current lack of bodies, of course).
Good morning to Derrick Jones Jr.'s ankle, RoCo's head, CJ's foot, Nurk's arm and Zach Collins's ankle. Get well soon!— Team Mom (@tcbbiggs) January 29, 2021
In theory, a human who had all of these parts would become the next LeBron. In reality, it’s just a very fun team desperately trying to stay in contention and in one piece for the rest of the season.
Hey Look! A Distraction!
I’ll never get over Chris Paul pulling the chair out in the post. This is one the best ever lmao. pic.twitter.com/LhzuaTqd61— Chase Hughes (@ChaseHughesNBCS) January 29, 2021
Now you see me, now you don’t.
There’s a guard whose last name is Morant that wears No. 12 at Houston High.— Khari Thompson (@_KhariThompson) January 29, 2021
Teniya Morant, sister of Grizzlies star @JaMorant , is about to embark on her own Memphis hoops journey.https://t.co/adTp5wqvuM pic.twitter.com/oMBoVsOA7h
Teniya Morant has the signature Morant smile, and now she’s proving that she has the skill set to go toe-to-toe with her brother any day of the week. Hopefully, whichever WNBA team drafts her (please be the Phoenix Mercury) can name another giraffe and/or suitable baby animal after her as well.
On Second Thought
Okay it's just not his night.— Spencer Davies (@SpinDavies) January 29, 2021
Yeah...just missed a dunk now and turned it over. Game to forget.— Spencer Davies (@SpinDavies) January 29, 2021
Steve Kerr may have jinxed himself when he said he wasn’t entertaining the Kelly Oubre Jr. trade rumors. Maybe he spoke too soon, or maybe sometimes you have it and sometimes you don’t, and sometimes it just be like that.
