Tweet Beat: The one with Greg Wiltjer’s dunk


As part of the never-ending quest to bring you University of Kentucky news in the most ridiculous manner possible, I comb the Twitter-verse each week for the funniest, oddest, and sometimes, nearly illegible tweets from your favorite players and personalities. Basically, I read Twitter so you don’t have to. Without further ado, here are the best tweets of the week.

This week, we learned no one is safe from the WBA, including Kyle’s mother and now, his father, Greg:

A dunk AND a half-court shot?! I suddenly have much more respect for the Canadian Professional basketball league.

Hey Josh Hopkins: amen.

How could anyone hate Michael Kidd-Gilchrist? No, really. It’s not possible…

Sam Malone unleashed a series of awesome #oldmantweets:

Further proof that Coach Calipari only surrounds himself with champions:

Happy belated birthday to former Cat Walter McCarty, or should I say, “Hott Balls”:

This is a fantastic sign and I want to put it on my wall:

The gray unis have another supporter in Chuck Hayes:

After admitting that he liked the gray unis, Rex Chapman continued to lobby for the old school “shorty-shorts.” #aintgonnahappen

I’m totally using this method to see who pays for group dinners next time:

Knowing that Ashley Judd also looks up UK basketball fan videos in her spare time makes me feel much better about my life.

Mark Krebs finally found a place to call home in Nawlins:

Forget “Snooki,” Brian Long is the new Jersey expert:

This is true, by the way. I guess the only things New Jerseyans pump are their fists.

Meanwhile, Jarrod Polson thinks he deserves a RT for having to put up with the smell of fresh hay coming from Eloy’s room each day:

Before even stepping on campus, Alex Poythress is being educated about the power of the #BBN:

Looks like the story about McDonalds’ “pink goo” got to Perry Stevenson, too:

I don’t care if we beat them by 25 points, #TennesseeHateTweets never get old.

National Signing Day conjured up some happy memories for one of my favorite football Cats, Wesley Woodyard.

I’m starting to worry that Aaron Boyd has gone off the deep end…your “Oh, Boyd!” Tweets of the Week:

Rock on Morgan Newton, I also hate coleslaw:

Josh Teater isn’t the only Boyle County native to give Rich Brooks golfing advice lately:

I love Jeremy Jarmon, but half of the fun of National Signing Day is the sweet nostalgia for fax machines. Plus, what would happen to the Alabama Fax Machine girl?

Love you too, Golden Eyes.

In this week’s “Bookie Tweet of the Week,” Bookie (who is now calling himself “Yung Booke aka Flya”) got booted:

Dats waaaaay cray. I think. Until next time, RT plz?

    It hilarious that Kyle and his dad walk exactly the same. Plus in his mom’s move it like Bernie video. It looked like there was a tall younger girl in the background. Maybe it is his sister and Matthew Mitchell can recruit her. Hook shots in memorial, are you with me?

    KW needs to spend more time practicing on his shot and less time making videos.

    Can someone explain why on ESPN’s Wooden award poll Mike Scott is getting POY love over Anthony Davis (only #4, cmon guys!)? He’s like Jodie was in ’09 and he certainly got no POY attention…

    I hope MKG’s tweet doesn’t mean his teammates. Cal wants these guys to be friends!

    Wiltjer may be my favorite player ever. And now we’ve seen what he’ll look like in 50 years. I’d take him on a last second hook/heave any day.

    The Wiltjer Videos of Family make him look like he comes from a Family of Giants….especially with all the little people running around…

    Sam Malone is doing those tequila commercials with the guy from The Sopranos. I really like them.

    I would like to be adopted by the Wiltjer family. Seems like the happiest family ever. I love it! I remember “G” Wiltjer on the 1992 olympic game basketball game on Genesis. He had MAAAADDDD hops knowuddd imsayyinn!
