Opening Week In Tweets


Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

An incomplete and totally arbitrary compilation of Bucks-related tweets from the first week of the 2013-14 NBA season.

What a week it’s been. After Wednesday’s win over Cleveland, the Bucks sit at 2-2, already on pace to finish right around where most expected. We’ve seen some highs (Zaza, Wolters) and some lows (Larry, Injuries), but it’s no doubt been a fun, comeback-filled opening set of games.

Below I’ve compiled the tweets I feel best encapsulate the first nine days of Bucks basketball (with a bit of added commentary, of course). Some come from respected NBA authorities; the majority do not. Enjoy:

The Bucks won this game.

Take THAT, Sixers! But really, I’m not sure how to explain this.

Comedy always wins.

That about sums it up.

And so began the Nate Wolters era.

A team should never be creeping up to 29.9 percent.

I feel like this is the type of account Ron Swanson would enjoy.

Celtic killer!

So worth it.

We’ll chalk this one up to the injured ankle.

The bench storms back again…

…but falls just short.

So yeah.

What a wild ride it was.

Okay now this was cool.

#dobetter?! Good luck finding a plastic deer mask anywhere else.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Michael Redd as much as the next guy, but here are a few other lefties who were okay at basketball: Bill Russell, David Robinson, Chris Mullin, Willis Reed. And for what it’s worth, this man’s bio reads: “Sing to me Lana Del Rey, marry me Selena Gomez, and Kendall Jenner feel free to give me a shout…Kylie you too.”

What the hell happened in November of 2002?!

Larry Sanders is an ELITE baby name chooser.

Can you believe Cleveland took Bennett over Wolters?

Oh, he must’ve injured it in practice.

Wait a second…

I’m not as skeptical about this as I should be.

Sure, why not!

You’re not alone, my friend.

Brace yourself for the Zaza tweets.

Not sure how legitimate this is (I’m going to throw out a wild guess and say not very), but well-deserved nonetheless.

Raise your hand if you thought you’d ever read that sentence. That’s what I thought.

His bio reads: “The official Zaza pachulia and Luis scola headquarters of domination.” That is all you need to know.

Absolutely NOTHING comes close to how accurately this sums up the first four games.

I mean, if we’re talking rings…


See below.

My personal favorite. So much confusion.

He’s a 65 overall. Birdman is a 66.

Couldn’t have said it better myself.

Four of Neal’s 21 made shots have come in the paint. So kind of.


This man is apparently a sports radio host.

Caron Butler is 33.

This needs to happen.

True, but it sounds like he was working on that right hook last weekend AMIRITE?!


In other news, fire is hot.
