In today's day and age of social media advancements, the NBA has become as Twitter-centric as it gets. Players, fans and the media have all embraced it, and as a result, The Association is the No. 1 sports league on social media, according to Mary Noonan of CNBC.com.
I remember as child writing letters to NBA players. Not emails, not Facebook posts and certainly not tweets. We're talking physical letters that traveled by mail, sent to addresses my parents convinced me were homes of my idols.
I never received a single letter back, with the exception of one from a young Kobe Bryant. The handwriting looked suspiciously familiar to that of my father's, but who was I as an eight-year-old boy to ruin his fun?
Today, players are engaging on a daily basis with fans through Twitter. The days of the letter in the mail are gone, and while a tweet is confined to 140 characters, we have far more access to the players we've always watched from afar.
As it turns out, many of them are highly entertaining. Some are comical, some are insightful and others are downright unpredictable.
Regardless of which team you root for night in and night out, there are a handful of players across the league who have become must-watch tweeters throughout the 2013-14 season.
