The 5 Best NBA Social Media Handles

Virtually every NBA player is active to some degree on Twitter and/or Instagram, and the world is a better place for it.

The smartest move when setting up your Social Media accounts is probably to set the username as, well, your name.

That’s exactly what the vast majority of them have done – some combination of name, initials, and jersey number make up the majority of NBA player social handles.

I’d like to take a moment to salute those who took a risk and picked creative social media handles:

5. Royce O’Neal – @rolls_royce00

There are tons of players who missed out on golden opportunities for a name-related pun or wordplay in their handle, but Royce came through.


4. Robert Covington – @holla_at_rob33

If I ever need to holla at Rob(ert Covington), I know exactly how to do it thanks to his very informational handle.


3. Aron Baynes – @houseobayne

Aron comes in at #3 with a nod to the classic one-hit-wonder, House of Pain.


2. Juan Toscano-Anderson – @juanonjuan10

JTA hasn’t yet found a steady rotation role in the NBA, but he’s coming in hot with his hilarious Twitter and Instagram handles.


1. Saddiq Bey – @goodtweetsender

You never really know what you’re going to get in the draft. One thing the Pistsons can be sure of is that Saddiq Bey will be sending out some good tweets (allegedly).


Thank you, gentlemen, for ignoring the cries of your social media advisors and risking your marketability. Your comedic efforts are appreciated.
