2. Emma Carmichael

@emmacargoEmma is a Celtics fan, so it's not clear whether her Finals tweets will be as great as her Heat-Celtics thoughts, but if you've read her at Gawker or Deadspin you know she's hilarious.

@basquiatballI literally know nothing about @basquiatball other than the fact that his Twitter feed is consistently hilarious and his basketball observations are pretty spot-on.

@KDonHoopsNo 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.
