Tweet of the Night: Damian Lillard reacts to a clip of Vinny Del Negro writing off the Blazers on NBATV

Damian Lillard

Since the beginning of the season, Damian Lillard and the Portland Trail Blazers have been all about being written off by the media. No one thought the Blazers would come anywhere near making the playoffs, let alone being a top five team in the Western Conference. Lillard, who has clearly had an All-Star season, wasn’t voted in by the coaches to be at All-Star weekend. Naturally, there aren’t too many outside of Portland who believes the Blazers have any shot at moving past

Tweet of the Night: NBA players react to Kobe Bryant’s epic 60-point game on his final day as a player

Kobe Bryant

April 13, 2016. The final day of Kobe Bryant’s illustrious career as an NBA player. The last time we will ever see one of the greatest legends of this generation playing the game of basketball. Whether you love him or hate him, the man known as “The Black Mamba” has had a profound impact in the NBA over the last two decades no matter how you slice it. It’s been a tough finish to his career over the last few seasons, though, as the

Tweet of the Night: Evan Fournier reacts to Charles Barkley’s hate of the Warriors

Fournier

The Golden State Warriors are 72-9 on the season and are one win away from being immortals in the history books. That hasn’t stopped Charles Barkley from believing that the Warriors would be booted out of the playoffs in the second round if they run into the Los Angeles Clippers, a team the Warriors went 4-0 against this season. His primary reason: Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan would maul the Warriors. In fact, Barkley went as far as to say that he

Tweet of the Night: Bill Simmons reacts to Dallas clinching playoff spot and states reason for wanting to see Houston in the playoffs

Simmons1

When the season started, the assumption was that the Dallas Mavericks and Houston Rockets would be a shoo-in for the playoffs. There was no reason for either of them to fall off too much from last season, with the exception of Dallas losing their bid for DeAndre Jordan in the offseason. That hasn’t exactly been the case, though, as both teams have struggled for much of the season just to stay in the race for a low seed. The Rockets, in particular,

Tweet of the Night: Festus Ezeli opens up about having to sit due to knee surgery

festus-ezeli

The Golden State Warriors haven’t had a fully healthy roster for much of the second half of the season. Part of that had to do with the absence of backup center Festus Ezeli, who missed over two months of action after undergoing an arthroscopic surgery on his left knee back in late January. Ezeli, who is an integral part of the second unit for the best team in the league and more than capable of filling in for starting center Andrew

Tweet of the Night: Boris Diaw frustrated about not being able to play the Warriors

Diaw

The last time the Golden State Warriors faced the San Antonio Spurs back in March, they had their worst scoring output in the Steve Kerr era with 79 total points. Thursday proved to be a different story, as they got past the Spurs at home 112-101 with relative ease. With the victory, the Warriors became just the second team in NBA history to reach 70 wins. Not surprisingly, Stephen Curry led the way for the Warriors with 27 points, five rebounds, nine

Tweet of the Night: Magic Johnson thinks the Warriors should rest for the playoffs

Magic Johnson

After losing rather inexplicably to the Minnesota Timberwolves at home on Tuesday, the Golden State Warriors have little room for error in their quest for the best regular season record of all time. The Warriors are currently 69-9, meaning they would have to win their remaining four games in order to beat the 1995-1996 Chicago Bulls record of 72-10. After losing two of their last three games – both at home where they were previously undefeated – and looking like a

Tweet of the Night: J.R. Smith thankful after breaking Cavaliers single season 3-point record

JR Smith

J.R. Smith has been known as a bit of a wild-card character during his tenure in the NBA, but the one thing he could always do through it all was the ability to shoot with plenty of range. It’s probably even fair to say he’s underrated in some respects when it comes being recognized as a sharp shooter over the course of his career, if not scrutinized for his tendency to chuck away. Smith is currently 17th on career 3-pointers made with
