You now know the Golden State Warriors The defeat of Boston Celtics To win the NBA Finals in six games that were almost as unpredictable as Philadelphia 76ers Star Joel EmbiidFollowers of's Twitter account. What you may not know: What you will do to fill that gap in your evening where elite-level basketball once resided.

We can't help but to make you nostalgic for the 2021-22 season. Instead, we will regale you with #NBATwitter moments from the past nine months.

Some of these might be new to you if you aren't familiar with #NBATwitter, the mammoth sporting community. This will probably be a refresher for those who are familiar with the topic. You can view the following as a #NBATwitter yearbook. HAGS… that's “have fun this summer” for those who don't know what it means.

Bing Bong was born

Linsanity could walk, so that “Bing Bong” could run. The New York KnicksSeason was off to a great start… until it wasn’t. The rallying cry inspired by subway doors — which was adopted by fans and took on a life of its own — was longer than the Knicks' winning record but the “Bing Bong” hoopla made for some great nights on NBA Twitter.

This particular night, New York was handed its first loss by Orlando. It was probably more fun for Magic fans.

It's a horrible sight.


It was an option. Kyle Kuzma took a (large) risk He wore a pink, oversized sweater when he stepped out on Nov. 22. While fashion-forward, and sometimes bizarre, fits have been a part of the Association's fabric for a long time. This was something completely different.

It's a mild way to say #NBATwitter noticed.

Raf Simons sweater was also well received by the public. It retails for $1,360.94. Washington Wizards Foregoing is better than the former Los Angeles Lakers teammates.

“Ain’t no f—ing manner you wore that !!!” LeBron James Kuzma has received comments on her Instagram post. “I don't want to press the like button, this is crazy Kuz!” Anthony Davis LeBron wrote the same sentiment as LeBron, “You're outta liii sir !!!!”

You're now just someone KD used to know

The basketball gods knew this, and they did it! James Harden It does not do him any favors to let the news about his trade out from the Brooklyn Nets The Philadelphia 76ers Break on the same day of the NBA All-Star draft. While you wait, be a team captain Kevin Durant It did not do his former teammate any favors to pass on seven times selecting him.

Durant's last pick Rudy Gobert Do you prefer Harden? Wildly inconsolable. LeBron's reaction? Priceless.

Troel Emiid has joined the chat

Joel “Troel” Embiid, a former teammate, had some thoughts about the trade that sent Harden and his family to Philly. Paul Millsap in exchange for Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, Andre Drummond You can also draft your picks.

To make his previously diplomatic feelings about Simmons clear, the king of cryptic Tweets used a Twitter meme. Simmons was once considered his forever running mate.

The photo is from an Instagram user, who claimed that he went to “one my biggest hater's funeral” in order to make sure that his hater was gone.

Troel's send-off of Simmons to Embiid wasn't the only thing that raised eyebrows this season. Troel took to Twitter to complain about Miami's need to have another star during Game 5 in the Eastern Conference finals.

Given the Heat's previous elimination of the 76ers — and Embiid’s close relationships with his ex-Philly teammate. Jimmy Butler The response from #NBATwitter was quick and furious, with many people convinced that Embiid was considering a move to South Beach.

LeBron's deleted Twitter… and other thoughts

You can't use the internet for anything. Really You can take back something. Even if you decide to change your mind, or think differently about a tweet a few hour later, it's still there once you hit “send.” This is especially true if your name and followers are LeBron James and more than 51.5 million.

LeBron sent the following message on Aug. 4, 2021 about Lakers' offseason moves. “Keep talking about our squad, our personnel age, the way they play, he stays hurt, we're past this league's time, etc. !!!! Do me a favor. Please, please! Please keep the same narrative energy when it starts! That's all that I ask.

If LeBron hadn't deleted the above, it would have been a great source of material for @OldTakesExposed or the like. Lakers' season imploded.

We hope King James is pleased with his April 22 tweet. vowed to never miss the postseason again during his career Ages are better

Tee Morant has a number of series

The father of the up-and-coming Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant Although it's a cool claim of fame in itself, being a dead ringer to Usher makes it an even better party trick. This trick is also useful when it's featured on a “Look-Alike” cam.

On April 16, a tweet likening Morant's father, Tee, to the eight-time Grammy-winning R&B singer had #NBATwitter doing a double take. It was time to bring Tee and Usher together in a single room. April 26, the Grizzlies delivered.

Tee was not the only reason that Tee was the center of attention during the postseason. He had been in Memphis' first round series earlier. made a wager with Minnesota Timberwolves star Karl-Anthony Towns' father That required that the losing father wear the jersey of his son's winner.

Morant won the bet and may have also earned some Usher tickets. This is a great series.

The story of the “Luka Special”

Underestimate Luka Doncic At your own risk It's a lesson. Devin Booker & Co. learned firsthand during the Western Conference semifinals. The series between the Phoenix Suns And Dallas Mavericks The match was intense from the beginning. One Game 5 moment would be a gift that keeps giving to the #NBATwitter loyal.

As the Suns were blowing the Mavs out of the Mavs' third quarter, Dorian Finney-Smith Booker fouled Booker while the Phoenix guard was driving towards the hoop. Booker fell on the floor, and he stayed there to make the foul. Booker was laughing and not in any way hurt. He then proceeded to call what he was doing the “Luka Special.”

You'll remember that the Mavs won Game 6, forcing a Game 7, in which the +6.5 underdogs beat the Suns by 123 to 90. Dallas was led in the win by Doncic, who scored 35 points and had 10 boards as well as 4 assists in 30 minutes. “You can’t get this smile from my face right away,” Doncic said after the victory. “I'm just really happy.”

One fan found a photo that Luka was uninhibitedly smiling at Book In Game 6 once they searched. the “Luka Special” took on new meaning.

Even the airport in Dallas Fort Worth got involved.

Trolling by a public transportation hub is the best way to say “taking an l”

Pat Bev slanders CP3

DBook wasn't alone in taking flak for the Suns' premature exit from the postseason. Timberwolves guarded Game 7's blowout the next morning. Patrick Beverley Participated in First Take and Get Up! to share his thoughts about what happened.

Beverley, a man who admits to having a beef since high school with Chris Paul, didn't hold back. Beverley even went so far as to say that the 12-time All-Star was like a cone.

#NBATwitter was created in support of CP3, with the consensus being: You don’t tell that.

Curry predictions

It's not to revive the old. Stephen Curry LeBron James vs. LeBron rivalry. However, in a tale about two proclamations one was much more accurate than the other. LeBron's defense against the Lakers' move to a more senior roster was futile, but Curry's declaration following being eliminated in the play-in tournament 2021 proved to have been spot on.

However, long before the Warriors received the Larry O'Brien Trophy again for the fourth consecutive season and Steph was awarded the previously unattainable Finals MVP award it was Candace Parker who was manifesting to support the Golden State star. Before the Warriors' Nov.8 game against Trae Young The Atlanta HawksParker claimed that Steph would get a 50-piece.

The casual 50-point game was over, with 10 assists. Chicago Sky Star was looking prophetic.
