Tweet Beat: Guess who's back...back again...

Mrs. Tyler Thompsonabout 9 years


As part of the never-ending quest to bring you University of Kentucky news in the most ridiculous manner possible, I comb the Twitter-verse each week for the funniest, oddest, and sometimes, nearly illegible tweets from your favorite players and personalities. Basically, I read Twitter so you don’t have to. Without further ado, here are the best tweets of the week. Alumni's back, tell a friend. With the Calipari Fantasy Experience well underway, they've got plenty to do, including signing an entire room full of basketballs: That puts the ball pit at the skating rink to shame. How long does it take to sign a room full of balls (get your head out of the gutter, SexN)? It took Derek Anderson almost two hours: Derek's not going easy on the campers, either. Hope you do your stretches, Matt. This needs to be in a frame somewhere: As does this: (BTW, the photos coming out of this weekend will be epic. Tweet Beat is shivering in anticipation.) Odds Prairie Dog throws up three goggles on Saturday? Good to see the youngins giving respect where it's due: Also, what is that? A painting? A blanket? More importantly, where can I get one? It's official: Willie Cauley-Stein has taken over the role of emo-tweeting from Ryan Harrow. His sad tweet didn't Sam Malone from going grammar police on him: Not to nitpick like a KSR commenter, but it should be "too" as well. Who knew Sam Malone was a pool shark? Archie, if I dunked on Anthony Davis, I'd brag about it too. What is it with kids these days and "Space Jam"? Between it and "The Lion King," predicting players' favorite movies in the media guide has never been easier. Perry Stevenson is still planning on writing that Billy G. tell-all: Real smooth, Smooth: Next up on Enes Kanter's agenda? Learning how to samba. Enes, you can come with me to Zumba anytime. But, please don't wear this shirt: Seriously starting to worry he's becoming the Borat of the NBA. In case you've been keeping a list of things harder than a Tubby Smith practice, Erik Daniels has a suggestion: Doron, pretty sure Chad Johnson's looked dumb for quite some time now. Who would dare stab Jorts in the back?! If you mess with Jorts, you mess with the BBN. When #TeamNoSleep becomes dangerous: Not only is Bud Dupree a beast on the field, but he's also fuel efficient: Well done, sir. I really, really hope that's a real buffalo and not a statue: One of the things the kids were doing on Twitter this week was calling people out on being "basic." I am old, so I looked up "basic" on ye olde and found this definition:
Likened to children, a 'basic' is a term used to describe someone with attributes of idiocy, foolishness and child-like behaviour. A 'basic' commonly has little to no intelligence, and struggles to break social barriers. A 'basic' often reverts to exaggeration and deceit to over come these social barriers and gain a mild sense of acceptance within his/her friendship circles.
According to La'Rod King, you are basic if: Amen. Huh? Well, that's just poor budgeting. Before you put the following tweet on an inspirational poster, Morgan Newton wants to point out that he actually just wants to eat some food: Yes, Max Smith, that's shady. Life's pretty good for Oh_Boyd right now. After a career game, he gave the BBN a shoutout for their support: And later, enjoyed the perks of his new stardom: But just when you were ready to declare his Twitter account squeaky clean and therefore boring, he tweets this classic Oh_Boyd line: In between golfing and reunions with old friends, Papa Brooks took it old school with this classic tomato tweet: I had to break out the iPhone to decipher this Bookie Tweet of the Week: Is Bookie writing a ghetto soap opera? Until next time, RT plz?
