The Rock has about 94 movies that are either in theaters or coming out this weekend, along with roughly 33 television shows premiering this summer, so he's hitting the publicity trail hard, including a takeover of the "NBA on TNT" Twitter account.
We've done it many times throughout the playoffs (usually with Metta World Peace), so we'll go ahead and take you guys on the tour of The Rock's temporary takeover during the Miami Heat-Chicago Bulls game on Wednesday night.
Much like everybody else in the world, The Rock expected the Heat to take the first game of our double-header and finish up the series.
And, once again, much like everybody else in the world he had his own Joakim Noah jokes to toss out there.
When he was done admonishing Noah for getting a bit too rowdy, Rocky turned his attention over to Chris Andersen with a little love for the big tattooed dude.

After getting blown out of the water for much of the first half, Chicago came back with a vengeance and took the lead. From there we took a ride into clichéville.
Classic Nate Robinson 5'9 & limitless heart. (Also known to throw up in buckets during games.) #RockTakeover— NBA on TNT (@NBAonTNT) May 16, 2013
Keeping the comedy train going, The Rock took aim at Shaq and Charles Barkley, two of the easiest NBA-related targets to make fun of in the history of the game.
From there Rocky took offense to an offshoot comparison to Carlos Boozer from his friend. I understand the aggression he must have felt. Nobody wants to be compared to a guy who used to look like he colored in his hair with a sharpie.
My buddy just said Boozer could be my twin. *Slaps buddy across face* #RockTakeover— NBA on TNT (@NBAonTNT) May 16, 2013
He left us with a humble Finals MVP prediction, which I suppose was also a prediction for the two teams that would make the NBA Finals.
Unfortunately, The Rock didn't have the time to stick around for the entire game. I hear he's filming a sequel to Fast and the Furious 12, while doing his half of Tooth Fairy 3.
