(In no particular order…)
1. Dan Devine
Dan is an associate editor at Yahoo’s Ball Don’t Lie basketball blog. He tells jokes.
2. Emma Carmichael
3. J. Doug Hastings
I literally know nothing about @basquiatball other than the fact that his Twitter feed is consistently hilarious and his basketball observations are pretty spot-on.
4. Bethlehem Shoals
Bethlehem Shoals is one of the minds behind the late, great basketball blog FreeDarko. He now writes for GQ and is one of the founders of The Classical. His feed is equal parts awesome jokes and smart basketball analysis.
5. Kelly Dwyer
No matter how he chooses to capitalize it, I will always read Kelly’s handle as K-Don-Hoops, which is really badass. Also he has smart takes on basketball and is a funny dude. He runs Ball Don’t Lie.
6. Got ‘Em Coach
Put simply, Got ‘Em Coach is one of the funniest people on the Internet talking about basketball. Also his photoshops are great.
7. Brian Windhorst
The man they call Windy is one of the best beat reporters in the game. He’s covered LeBron since he was in high school and it shows. His feed is constantly full of interesting and informative behind the scenes news. A must-follow.
8. Tom Ziller
9. CJ Fogler
CJ is a GIF and screenshot connoisseur. He also knows his way around a joke and writes for SportsGrid.
10. Eric Freeman
Like a few people on this list @netw3rk is something of a phantom. His real identity is unknown, but he is a Twitter genius. He’s hilarious. He’s smart. He knows basketball. He also occasionally writes for SB Nation.
12. Tas Melas
Tas is one-third of the primary cast of The Basketball Jones daily podcast. He’s a funny guy and he looks like Hedo Turkoglu. He’s long-winded about puns.
13. Rembert Browne
Rembert covers sports and pop-culture for Grantland. He also enjoys Lil B and hating Joe Johnson. He’ll make you laugh.
Jose is a GIF maven. A GIF magnate. A GIF mogul. Among the first people to have clips and highlights on YouTube (and the dude is witty too), Jose is a must-follow.
15. J.E. Skeets
J.E. is one of the co-hosts of The Basketball Jones. He makes jokes and likes photoshops. He’s also a great source of general basketball content from around the Internet, tweeting out his favorite links throughout the day.
16. Sebastian Pruiti
Sebastian covers basketball for Grantland. He knows the game from an X’s and O’s standpoint better than damn near anyone online.
17. David Roth
Roth writes for The Classical and BuzzFeed Sports (hey that’s us!) and he’s a generally and genuinely funny dude.
18. Zach Lowe
One of the best reporters around, Zach is a great source for both behind the scenes news and solid analysis during games.
19. Trey Kerby
Trey runs The Basketball Jones blog. He loves Brad Miller, headbands, and JaVale McGee jokes.
20. Russ Bengtson
Russ is the sneaker editor for Complex and the Editor In Chief Emeritus of SLAM. If he doesn’t make you laugh, at least you’ll have a “Rick Ross as an emoticon” avatar in your feed.
21. Hardwood Paroxysm
Not just a funny account, the official Twitter of Hardwood Paroxysm is a one stop shop for basketball news. Contributing to the conversation, but also retweeting many so that anyone following the account gets a full narrative of a game.
