Tweet me back, Anthony Davis
Last night 60 more young men got added to the list of people I will bother over Twitter. My Lakes grabbed some dude who’s last name is half-Odom, I’m assuming as a personal apology to me for ripping my heart out last fall. And also our very own Mr. Irrelevant, who is tall. But obv, that is not really like the “big thing” from last night. The big thing was on one...
Tweet me back, Devin Ebanks
@DevinEbanks3 Yo which way is it going? You gotta be more specific. — slisl (@slisl) June 26, 2012 I would recommend a preposition! Devin Ebanks: @DevinEbanks3
Tweet Me Back, JaVale McGee
I made a mistake this weekend. I make a lot of mistakes, pretty much all the time, likely because there is something wrong with my brain. Here are some pictures of mistakes I made recently: From top left: too many pepper flakes on my soup, dropped froyo, too many pepper flakes on my pasta (I don’t learn), dropped compost. The mistake I made this weekend eclipsed all of those. I tied...
Tweet me back, Ty Lawson. OH WAIT YOU DID!!!
AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!! I tweeted Ty Lawson and, before I even got a chance to tumblr about tweeting Ty Lawson, he tweeted me back! HE TWEETED ME BACK!!!! :D :D :D :D Ok. Got that out of my system. Sort of. Not really actually. One more time. TY LAWSON MOTHERFUCKING TWEETED ME BACK AAAAAHHHH :D :D :D X FOREVER. Ok for reals I’m done now. Here is a breakdown of what happened....
Tweet me back, Kevin Durant
You guys, I was so excited for today. For SURE the Thunder would come out swinging. We all thought they were on the brink against the Spurs right? I’m writing this midway through the fourth quarter. Oof. To celebrate what I thought was the Thunder’s sure win, I was going to roll out a new feature: “Dress Like an NBA Player Thursday.” Well I dressed like KD today, but I...
Tweet me back, Cole Aldrich
@colea45im not sure who you are. — slisl (@slisl) June 20, 2012 Seriously. I don’t think I’ve ever seen this person before. Cole Aldrich: @colea45
Tweet me back, Nazr Mohammed
When you’ve set a personal goal of getting an NBA Player to tweet you back, and devote an inordinate amount of energy and resources to that goal, you follow a lot of NBA players on Twitter. When you follow a lot of NBA players on Twitter you learn a lot of things that are awesome to know, such as: 1) Which NBA players are friends (or at least which ones go to Vegas together). 2) Which...
Tweet me back, Serge Ibaka
I was watching Game 2 with a friend of mine who watches basketball less frequently than I do. She said “who’s Sir Chewbacca?” The best way to deal with this problem is probably to take it to the top: @sergeibaka9 Yo, I think you should let the announcers know to work on their diction when they’re saying your name. #sirchewbacca — slisl (@slisl) June 15, 2012 Serge...
Tweet Me Back, Thabo Sefolosha
So I’ve decided, in a show of solidarity, to only tweet Thunder players for the duration of the finals. Now you could argue that harassing NBA players over Twitter is not a form of support, and I should instead spend the next 2 weeks bothering Heat players. But I’m pretty sure the Thunder know that “pay attention to meeee” is roughly equivalent to “I want you to win...
Tweet me back, James Harden
You guys, I am SO pumped for this finals. Like for reals, I know my team (Lakes) are long gone (god rest their weary souls), but that just makes it possible for me to be pumped, flailing and superexcited rather than constantly nauseous, wincing and generally fraying at the edges. I want to know if there is a point in fandom where you start to enjoy watching your team play again, because...
Tweet me back, Danilo Gallinari
I FUCKING LOVE CHERRY TOMATOES! They are so bursty and small and tomato-y. They are one of my favorite things. I bought a salad today with cherry tomatos and it was incredible! Sometimes I only eat cherry tomatoes. If I was a food blogger, I would only blog about cherry tomatoes. So good! In fact, I think that cherry tomatoes are one of the best things to eat when you are hungover. Once I had...
Tweet me back, Chris Bosh
UGGHHHH. My DVR is not workinggggg. Is there anyone who can run by my house and, like, manually record the game tonight? Anyone? Bosh, I know you’re a “game-time decision” and all, but you’re probably not doing anything right? @chrisbosh Hey if you end up not playing tonight, can you swing by my place and set the DVR to record? Thx — slisl (@slisl) June 5, 2012 You can...
Tweet me back, Rajon Rondo
So I check the weather this morning before getting dressed, and Weather is all like “50% of precipitation.” But I looked outside, and I knew what I saw, and I called Weather’s bluff. “No fucking way is it going to rain,” said I, and I proceeded to dress head to toe in rain-inappropriate attire. I think you can tell where this one is going. I am not more than a...
Tweet me back, Eric Bledsoe
Guys, I’m trying to figure out my plans for Friday night! I’ve got a few options lined up. 1. Stay at work late. 2. Pack up the shit in my kitchen because I’m moving tomorrow. 3. Drive up to San Francisco; eat at some food trucks. Any better ideas, guys?[[MORE]] Bout to watch this game a play some cards! Who want it??? — EBled24(@EBled24) June 2, 2012 Oh, what’s...
