20. MarSHON BROOKS
The new Celtic lets you know that he’s got a short temper. Hopefully it’s not too short because it may be a long season for him in Boston.

19. ROYCE WHITE
White still hasn’t played in a NBA game due to his anxiety problem and fear of flying but he has a little fun with himself on Twitter by explaining his son has opposite feelings about flying.

18. ANDRE DRUMMOND
‘Dre is all over social media as he was dubbed as our No. 1 player to follow on Instagram. While he is not at the top here, he still cracks our list as his unique personality is easy for his young followers to relate to at age 20.

17. RUSSELL WESTBROOK
We’re already used to outlandish outfits and Instagram posts from the man himself and Russ follows suit when using his Twitter handle. While he may think a bit outside of the box, Russ admits he forgot to finish his thought in his previous tweet.

16. TONY ALLEN
Twitter is one of the places where TA made the “Grit n’ Grind” phrase popular. Tony recently tweeted his frustration while stuck in traffic.

15. JaVALE McGEE
The star of “Shaqtin’ a Fool” seems a bit outdated with one of his most recent posts as he claims that he just picked up his new Nextel phone. I don’t even think they make those anymore but with JaVale, you never know what’s going on upstairs.

14. NATE ROBINSON
Nate is definitely one of the kings of social media but the only reason he is not in the top 10 on our list is because he’s recently moved his talents to Instagram, meaning most of his tweets are just reposts from his Instagram account. However, his Instagram account is one of the best and cracked our top five.

13. JEREMY LIN
Jeremy, you lost us on this one..

12. ROY HIBBERT
Hibbert’s account is definitely one of the best to follow because he takes you behind-the-scenes of his offseason workout regimen. He also expresses his love for Call of Duty and other video games.

11. ANDRE IGUODALA
Andre might have the coolest twitter handle name of them all because it’s simple and it was probably extremely hard for him to get. Do you know how many people in the world have the name Andre? I wonder if he had to duke it out with Andre 3000.

10. JARED DUDLEY
Dudley is one of the coolest people to follow on Twitter because he commonly interacts with his fans and often asks them questions. His post below is pretty funny but he’s just keeping it real because at the end of the day, he knows that teams in China will give him a big payday.

9. LeBRON JAMES
Because he’s the best player on this planet. That’s a good enough reason.

8. KEVIN LOVE
The Minnesota big fella loves to poke fun at other dudes in the league, including his teammates. Love has a hilarious personality that makes his Twitter handle worth the follow.

7. KEVIN DURANT
While KD usually keeps it PG-13, he drops an unexpected bomb across our Twitter timelines below. You can also always rely on Durant to recite some fresh new lyrics across your feed.

6. DeSHAWN STEVENSON
Stevenson’s tweet below is priceless due to his past beefs with LBJ but what makes it even better is that Stevenson shares a Twitter handle with his girl! Where they do that at?

5. KOBE BRYANT
Kobe’s been late to the social media scene after finally joining the club in the past year but it was well worth the wait. The Mamba went ahead and un-followed Dwight on Twitter and then explained to his fans why in an honest, yet hilarious fashion.

4. STEPHEN JACKSON
Besides firing shots at Serge Ibaka over Twitter earlier in the year, Jackson’s tweets are always a trip to read because he never spells anything right, exhibited by the tweets below. He didn’t even delete the error. No shame.

3. NICK COLLISON
Collison’s tweets are always pure comedy. Make sure to follow him because he usually doesn’t take himself seriously. Below, Collison asks his followers for Ray Donovan’s phone number (not a real person) after becoming infatuated by him on the new Sunday night Showtime series.

2. METTA WORLD PEACE
You just never know what to expect with Metta and that’s what makes him one of the best NBA players to follow on Twitter. He could ask you to go hiking, he could make some weird food analogy about getting amnestied or he could just give you his thoughts on Shark Week.

1. BLAKE GRIFFIN
Blake is one of the funniest dudes in the NBA but you’d never know it by his on-court personality. Off the court, Blake is active in comedy, exhibited by his internship with Funny or Die. Shown below, Griffin gets into it with Direct TV and Viacom over their inability to play his favorite show “Workaholics” and comes away with the win.
