NBA Players React to Game 1

Many take to Twitter to share their thoughts.

As Dallas and Miami began one of the most anticipated Finals ever last night, several NBA players hit the tweets with a variety of opinions and reactions. Some were rooting for the Heat; others hoped for Dirk & Co. to pull off the road win. And of course, some were still salty after early Playoff exits. Peep Game 1′s NBA Twitter reactions below.

    The Suns are the most literate basketball team (as a whole) on Twitter. Nash, Frye, Dudley, Hill are all pretty good. Not often you see random capital letters in the middle of a sentence, or 5 exclamation marks followed by… stuff.

    Time for all of Lebron’s detractors, including Barkley, to eat that proverbial crow >> http://clicky.me/18UQ

    “Joel Anthony may be the ugliest dude in the league. Nah on EARTH.” ftw!

  • Jono

    Not way is Joel Anthony unglier than Sam Cassell! Only ET is uglier and ET isn’t human!

  • Ryan D.

    No wonder half of these dudes lose all their money after they leave the NBA. Look at those posts a few of them cats are in there 30′s and still type like teenagers lol.


    Joakim Noah is by far uglier then anybody else in the league or in any professional sport in then world..grosssss

  • T-Money

    BTW, you’re allowed to stand after diving for the ball in the NBA. But only in the NBA. It’s a travel everywhere else, according to John Hollinger.

  • kareem

    HA, a long time ago Slam had a All-Ugly team in one of their issues. Dear Slam, fix us up again! Joel Anthony is at C….

  • Somebody named their SON Devonta

    Man, Jason Thompson needs to go back and slap everyone of his English teachers if that’s how he really types. These dudes sound like complete idiots. Honestly. Damn.

    Who cares about these tweets, when Dallas steals game 2, wins two games at home in the 3 game home span and steals game 6. The media will turn on this so called King Tut and mummify him then Wade will learn without refs giving you 16 free throw attempts per game, NBA Finals is a different story. BOOK IT!!

  • ogog

    subtle gilbert..

  • Abdo

    @the seed….you seem kinda salty my guy..


    The Seed. WOW. Whata prediction . Are you a fortune teller ? Dod you sit in front of a crystal ball stroking it gently thinking it’s Kobes te$-T , hoping it oozez something into your ugly mush ? thought so. NBA Finals aint a story it’s called taring Dallas a new a$$ h01£. The Texicans only rely on shooting & ain’t got no D to save themselves. Never had it really. Tell me how can dallas win if D wins championships ? So when the Heat take care of business tonite , take the next 2 games like it’s nothing. Proving Dallas were always a cardboard team. 4-0 King James Style ! So like i said before , you weak jabs ain’t ish coz i’m palming you head like a scully son !! :-) book dat.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Max

    4-0 Spurs-Lebron style!

  • Benji

    @kareem Yeah I remember that! I believe Nick Van Exel and George Muresan were in there along with Sam Cassell

  • dsleepy

    LOL at gilbert. i miss the dude in dc. no homo.
