The hype over the he-said/ he-said Charlie Villanueva-Kevin Garnett Tweeter feud in one day has grown from blogging content to quasi-journalistic internet reporting. Hopefully, there was a misunderstanding and Garnett didn't say what Villanueva thought he heard.
But, in an era of instantaneous communication DBSF thought it appropriate to review tweets to give readers some understanding of its prevalence and use in the NBA.
Al Harrington, Denver Nuggets, F: (9:32pm) "Worst part about plyng w/ Melo and JR? They shoot when I want too"
Chris Bosh, Miami Heat, F: (4:02pm) "Scoring 30+ a game was much more feasible when Demar Derozen and Jarrett Jack were the other options"
Chris Paul, NO Hornets, G: (3:39pm) "4-0 on a team where DJ Mbenga plays 10 minutes a night? DJ couldn't play on Duke. Give me LeBron and Bosh we'll win the Title and the NFC West."
Hasheem Thabeet, Memphis Grizzlies, C: (8:09pm/ in-game Tweet) "Oh God, please God, don't let them call my name. Please, don't have them put me in the game. Keep me safe here on the bench."
OJ Mayo, Memphis Grizzlies, G: (8:15pm/ another Grizzlies in-game Tweet) "Yo, coach said somethin' 'bout set a pick then box out; all I hurd wuz shoot, shoot, and shoot again. Word."
Tim Duncan, San Antonio Spurs, C: (10:27pm) "Frankly, I don't understand a darn thing JR Smith says on the court."
Nick Young, Washington Wizards, G: (1:01pm) "All my peoplz. Why can't basketball be like football? Some mans be playin' offense, some playin' defense. I ain't tryin to scuff my shoes playin' D and chasin' people all aroun'"
Lance Stephenson, Indiana Pacers, G: (9:09pm) "So, how does the D-League thing work? Do they tell you, or do you show up to the arena one day and your name isn't above your locker? I'm feeling vulnerable."
