The NBA Reacts to the East Coast Earthquake

A tweetcap of Tuesday’s “natural disaster.”

If you were anywhere on the East Coast on Tuesday afternoon, you might’ve felt the shock of an earthquake that hit the DC area around 1:50 p.m., and if you were on Twitter, then you definitely heard about it. Millions took to the social networking service to discuss the rare (at least for the East Coast) 5.8-magnitude quake—as, of course, did your favorite NBA players. Click through the gallery above to see how the world’s best hoopers responded to the day’s biggest news.

    Man! Im sorry 2 have 2 say this but, talk bout an overreaction. Damn! If any1 don’t think so, go ask Japan or Haiti. Or even California. They got a quake last night 2. A 3.6. Even as recently as Jan.12, California had a 4.5. Probably many, myself included, didn’t know that one. Stop with the overreacting. Its ridiculous 2 a point.

    And admits it.


    I understand that riggs. Mostly I was referring 2 the media tho. I should have said that. The way the media is portraying it one would think it was 9/11 all over again. Front pages of newspapers show people crying in the streets and petrified looks on their faces. I mean, seriously? C’mon. And then we got idiots tweeting WHILE the ground is shaking. Apparently those folks weren’t as frightened as they claim they were. Whatever tho.
