There’s nothing I love more than unfiltered opinions from pro athletes, which are a rarity these days. The PR-shielded world of professional sports gets extremely mundane, so it’s refreshing when athletes give their actual opinions on things, or say things that are just hilariously awful. Basically I miss Joe Namath.
You can imagine my delight when an enterprising Redditor by the name of /u/JewishDoggy (fantastic) posted an album of tweets from NBA players from before Twitter was a social media behemoth, that are SOMEHOW still up. The man took a deep dive, and came up with pure gold.
That’s maybe half of the hilarity encased in this album. Thank God “JewishDoggy” took screen caps, because there’s no way in hell most of these tweets are still live by tomorrow.
