Chris Paul later joined the fray, referencing his recent wild ride with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Paul on a banana boat in the Bahamas, and really, things should’ve ended there.
But then… well, and then new Clipper Paul Pierce showed his age by posting clip art of a rocket rather than an emoji.
Fair enough. At least he stayed on topic, which is more than the NBA teams who would later get involved did.
Soon, the Cavaliers were referencing the Kermit drinking tea meme.
The Warriors reminded everyone they’re the reigning NBA champs.
The Hawks complimented the Cavs.
The Trail Blazers complimented the Warriors.
The Magic reminded everyone that the team’s city is sunny and has palm trees.
The Hawks then may have thrown down an insult for the ages, possibly telling the Magic that they’re so bad they’re lottery team. Or maybe they’re all going to go play ball in Vegas soon.
Then the Bucks got really weird. Something about cabaret and ghosts? Bucks dot com, everyone.
Meanwhile, Jordan is still undecided. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
