20 Women on Twitter Who Know Their Basketball (And Look Great)

Twitter is a wonderful thing. One of its many benefits has been to open up the basketball conversation to all, putting “experts” and opinionated civilians on the same plane.

And within that basketball conversation is a segment of the Twitter population that we love – the women who know their hoops and look great doing it. We put together a list of some of our favorite Twitter females with samples of their work on and off the court. This list is in no particular order — each of these women bring something unique and we love them all.

You’re welcome.
