    It wasn’t just you wasting your entire day trying to keep up with your twitter timeline on NBA trade deadline day. Shane Battier was too, and that’s how he found out he was headed back to Memphis, he told WHBQ in Memphis (via Sports Radio Interviews). “I actually found out through Twitter feeds online.

    Feb 23, 2011, 2:04 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    There was a lot of shock going around the league when news broke that the Jazz had traded Deron Williams to the New Jersey Nets. Fans, media and players were shocked — and that includes Deron Williams himself. Chris Paul was no fan of the deal, he wrote this on twitter: Utah traded DWill?? #EpicFail…

    You were just thinking: What music do I need to put on while I get ready to go out on Friday night? What music will bring the funk and the fun? How about Nate Robinson‘s tweets set to song? Meet Kath, who can fry up some eggs and put the delicate poetry that is Nate…

  5. LeBron says nothing personal in tweet about Cleveland

    Jan 12, 2011, 9:54 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    Remember last night, after the Cavaliers Poseidon Adventure-level disaster against the Lakers in a 55-point loss, LeBron let out what seemed a pretty personal shot via twitter? Crazy. Karma is a b****.. Gets you every time. Its not good to wish bad on anybody. God sees everything! Well, before tonight’s game against the Clippers James…

  6. LeBron James calls Cleveland 55-point loss “karma”

    Jan 12, 2011, 9:10 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Miami Heat

    It was a historic, epic loss by the Cleveland Cavaliers Tuesday night. They didn’t just lose to the Lakers, they were an embarrassment. James Naismith was rolling over in his grave. The final score, 112-57, had people shaking their heads. Except for LeBron James, who tweeted this late Tuesday night: Crazy. Karma is a b****..…

  7. Vintage Artest got physical with Knicks, new Artest says don’t expect that again

    Jan 10, 2011, 9:58 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v New Orleans Hornets

    In a lot of ways, it looked like vintage Ron Artest on Sunday when the Lakers played the Knicks. He was physical and a pest. He picked up a flagrant foul for a hard hit on Amar’e Stoudemire and got a technical for getting into it with Shawne Williams. Except the new Ron Artest regretted…

  8. Ron Artest helps Lakers’ fans vent on twitter

    Jan 3, 2011, 6:20 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    All day Monday, Lakers fans have been acting like, well, Lakers fans. No fan base get more frustrated more quickly with a championship team, no fans turn on them as quickly. Certainly t the team is not playing up to its own standards, but to listen to Lakers fans on Los Angeles talk radio is…

  9. Blake Griffin has made the Clippers (yes, those Clippers) trendy

    Dec 1, 2010, 1:52 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    A couple weeks ago, Denver’s J.R. Smith popped up on twitter and asked if Blake Griffin was playing that night because he wanted to watch. He’s not alone — players around NBA locker rooms are talking about Griffin with an awe of his athleticism usually reserved for guys named LeBron. And count LeBron James in…

    Nov 12, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    Paul Pierce, LeBron James

    Just another one of the 82, nothing special about this game… yeah, right. Lest you think the Celtics didn’t get a little extra enjoyment out of last night’s win over Miami, check out Paul Pierce’s postgame tweet: It’s been a pleasure to bring my talents to south beach now on to Memphis LeBron can add…

  11. Dwight Howard on LeBron’s hater tweets: “All of us get those”

    Tuesday LeBron James turned the spotlight on some of the ugly, hateful tweets he gets. The dark underbelly of the connection to the public that twitter and other social media allow. Dwight Howard told the Orlando Sentinel LeBron’s experience on twitter is not unique. “All of us get those kinds of Tweets,” Howard said. “People…

  12. LeBron brings sunshine to some vile “haters”

    Oct 20, 2010, 4:19 PM EDT

    jamespreseason

    The great thing about social media like Twitter is it opens us up to all the people of the world. The bad thing about Twitter is that some people we’re exposed to are just scum. Nobody knows that like professional athletes. There are plenty of “haters” of LeBron James out there, but Tuesday he decided…

  13. Want to go to Warriors Media Day? Oh, sorry, now called Tweedia Day.

    Sep 15, 2010, 8:56 AM EDT

    Some lucky fan is going to be able to watch live and in person as David Lee does some television promotion bits. Thrilling stuff, that is. The Golden State Warriors are looking for some social media studs to be the fans eyes and ears at media day Sept. 27. To tell the public what is…

  14. Heat's Da'Sean Butler tweets a children's story. About a purple dinosaur. It's a little weird.

    Sep 2, 2010, 1:41 PM EDT

    Sentences I never thought I would type include: The Miami Heat’s Da’Sean Butler has tweeted a children’s story. That involves Barney a purple dinosaur and “Family Guy.” But there you have it. It’s true. He tweeted a long story about a children’s dinosaur. Our own Ira Winderman, writing for the South Florida Sun Sentinel, spent…

  15. JaVale McGee, Jeff Green cut from Team USA

    Aug 15, 2010, 11:55 AM EDT

    JaVale McGee is a freak athlete, but that alone is not enough to get you on Team USA. McGee himself announced that he has been cut from Team USA via his twitter account this morning. The Bad new is….. I got cut from the USA team :(… But i get to go back and work…

  16. King LeBron knows who's been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake

    Aug 11, 2010, 8:35 AM EDT

    Ever since his announcement that he was taking his talents to South Beach, LeBron James has taken a lot of criticism. And he’s been making a list and checking it twice, of who has been naughty and nice, as he announced on his twitter account. Don’t think for one min that I haven’t been taking…

  17. LeBron has a new twitter account. He has the marketing game down.

    Jul 6, 2010, 5:19 PM EDT

    It’s all about timing. Understanding the market and timing. Right now the sports world is focused on LeBron. (Well, American sports world, in Holland they are focused on other things.) He has never been more watched — even in the finals — and if you are going to launch a new marketing initiative, now is…

  18. Iverson Tweets he wants back in the NBA

    Jul 5, 2010, 9:44 PM EDT

    Allen Iverson is ready for his big comeback. I want to return to the NBA this season, and help any team that wants me, in any capacity that they feel that I can help. I’m disappointed, and I owe my fans more than what they have seen of me the last couple seasons. However, now…

  19. Want to know where LeBron James is going? Check his Website.

    Jul 4, 2010, 11:15 AM EDT

    “You’ll be the first to know.” Register at the new LeBronJames.com and that is the sentence that greets you. Those words plus other rumblings from his camp suggest that the first place the word of LeBron’s decision on where to play next year will be made through his site. DJ Steph Floss — the DJ…

  20. Dwyane Wade's cryptic tweet

    Jul 2, 2010, 7:40 PM EDT

    I don’t claim to be smart — I’m an NBA blogger, this is not what Rhodes Scholars do for a living — and on that note I’m not going to try to explain Dwyane Wade’s last tweet (as of this writing). It’s cryptic, and every team recruiting him (and a few that aren’t) could take…

  21. If there's such a thing as Twitter torture, Chris Bosh is doing it to Raptors fans

    May 5, 2010, 10:51 PM EDT

    Seriously, Chris, they bought your jerseys and everything. A day after Raptors’ star free agent Chris Bosh showed up at Staples for a Lakers playoff game, and less than a week after asking people via Twitter where he should go and then if he should “go,” Bosh is at it again, making headlines and knifing…

  22. You should be our Facebook fan. And follow us on Twitter. And drink Scotch with us.

    May 3, 2010, 12:16 PM EDT

    We’re social creatures. All of us here at PBT. We love to hang out, swap stories about Rasheed Wallace, people watch and enjoy a good Scotch. We’ll hang out late and drink you under the table. We’re also social media creatures. And you should hang with us there, too. PBT has — as of this…

  23. Chris Bosh asks on twitter where he should go, fail whale unleashed

    Apr 30, 2010, 11:23 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh must love to see the twitter fail whale. That or he has been able to buy part of the company and wanted to drive up the traffic numbers. Those reasons make more sense than he actually wanted the advice of the public when he tweeted:  “Been wanting to ask. Where should I go next…
