The NBA is in a place where it is more than just one of the three most popular sports leagues in the United States. It's become culturally important to a point where the players and their personalities have become almost as important as the games themselves.
For as long as there has been basketball, the close proximity of the players to the fans has made for access to some eccentric people, but never have we had the ability to access these players whenever we want to with just a few clicks of a mouse.
Open up Twitter, type in the name of the player you want to know all about and click the little follow button. That's all it takes for a personal link between you and a professional basketball player.
Of course, you don't want to go clogging up your timeline with every player in the NBA, so I decided that it would be a good idea to narrow them all down.
The makings of a good tweeter is both a personal touch to each message and some insightful, thoughtfulness to what they're tweeting. The best NBA tweeters try to be witty and let their personality show in their tweets. Bonus points if they don't tweet every little thing that happens throughout their day, thus clogging your timeline like a toilet on Thanksgiving.
