The 11 Best Sports Tweets of All Time

The official Los Angeles Dodgers Twitter account tweeted an absolutely amazing burn to the San Diego Padres the other day (more on that in a minute). It inspired me to think about some of the other best sports-related or athlete tweets of all-time. Without further ado:

11. Anything that Chris Kluwe tweets.

The outspoken punter of the Minnesota Vikings has gained a lot of fame from his witty, sarcastic commentary on Twitter. I picked out one of the funnier ones I have seen from him, but in reality, we could make a Top 10 list with just his tweets included.

10. Brandon Knight laughs off getting posterized by DeAndre Jordan.

This was a hilarious way to do it. And also confirmed that he actually hadn’t died.

And in case you haven’t seen the dunk or just want to watch it again because it is so amazing:

9. Patrick Willis had Kyle Williams’ back.

This was right after Williams had muffed two punts that helped contribute to the 49ers’ heartbreaking loss to the Giants in the 2012 NFC Championship, helping justify that punt returner is the worst position in football. But Patrick took the high road, even while people were tweeting death threats to Kyle. Bravo, Patrick.

8. Brett Anderson tweets that Manny Ramirez thought he was the team’s video coordinator.

This doesn’t surprise me at all. Manny being Manny.

7. Aaron Rodgers has hilarious conversation with Shooter McGavin handle.

Come on, who doesn’t love Happy Gilmore?

6. Brandon McCarthy gets out of hospital, demands threesome.

Apparently being an A’s pitcher makes you really hilarious on Twitter (see No. 8 for Brett Anderson). No word on whether Brandon’s wife ever obliged or not.

5. DeAngelo Williams tells off his fantasy owners.

Props to DeAngelo for tweeting what many NFL players think but never say about fans who berate them for not getting them enough fantasy points. He also basically said “why would you be starting me anyways?” Exactly.

4. That time when Chris Kaman skinned a bobcat before he was about to play the Bobcats.

3. T.J. Lang gets most retweets of all time for this one.

That is until one month later when Barack Obama tweeted out “Four more years” after the election. No shame there, T.J. This tweet was in response to the infamous call in Seattle that was ruled simultaneous possession instead of an interception, giving the Seahawks the win over the Packers and forcing the NFL to make a deal with its regular referees immediately.

2. Kobe: “Amnesty THAT.”

In response to Mark Cuban’s suggestion that the Lakers should amnesty Kobe after this year instead of paying him the $30 million he is signed for the 2013-14 season. Kobe then went out and put up a 38-12-7 line on the Mavericks in a Lakers win and tweeted this one-line dagger. Classic Mamba.

1. Dodgers: “You stay classy, San Diego.”

In response to Carlos Quentin charging the mound and breaking Zack Greinke’s collarbone. Whoever runs the Dodgers’ Twitter handle should get a raise.

Any ones that we missed? Let us know in the comments.
