NBA Awards: 2013 MVP of Twitter – Part I


MVP Heading Part 2 IN DRAFT

While I was casting my vote for various NBA regular season awards like MVP, MIP, and 6th man, I realized that I should be focusing my attention on the issues that need addressing.  That’s why I am proud to present…

The 2013 MVP of Twitter Award.

After gathering all the extensive research I could get my hands on and polling everyone I know or have ever met, I’ve been able to narrow down and ultimately decide who is the MVP of Twitter.  It wasn’t easy, but it had to be done.  A few quick things first…

Rookie of the Year:  Kobe Bryant  – (#AmnestyThat could have been the only thing he tweeted, and he still would have won RoTY)

MVP Candidates that Missed the Cut:  JaVale McGee, Blake Griffin, Shane Battier, Delonte West, Brandon Rush.


And now the MVP candidates.


3rd Place: Tony Allen

Tony Allen is a frequent tweeter, and that’s a big understatement.  I’m pretty sure that he’s tweeted more words than he’s actually spoken in the last year. In fact, the following tweets were only from the past month due to the massive volume of things he had to say.


Here’s what you get from Tony Allen’s Twitter…

2nd Place: Pau Gasol

It’s not that Pau Gasol is positive on Twitter…

It’s that Pau Gasol is so positive that I can’t help but slap on a silly grin after  everything he tweets.  There has never been a more articulately positive person in Twitter history.  It’s actually a little refreshing with all the negativity out there, that someone refuses to even touch it.  It can get down right hilarious sometimes with how positive and robotic he is, but Pau looks at the bright side of everything.  I can dig that.

Here is what Pau Gasol’s Twitter feed has to offer.

Best of all…

He tells you who the Lakers are playing  and gives his thoughts on each game.
