There’s little I love more than unfiltered opinions from athletes. In today’s world, when you’re a high-profile athlete, everything you say and do is put under a microscope of scrutiny. This leads to the PR-shielded world of professional sports getting extremely boring. It’s nice to see athletes telling us what they really think and feel. Need more of that these days.

So when a fellow writer, shitto, dug into the Twitter past of the rookies being drafted yesterday, I became elated. While these guys were happy at being drafted, Jake was retweeting their highly questionable tweets that are surprisingly still up today. The man took a deep dive and came up with pure gold.

Take a look:

No way these tweets are still up by next week. Their new PR person will be all over it. Tweets may not last, but screenshots always will.
