Tweet Beat: Nerlens wakes up in a new Bugatti

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.

With the money he’s about to make, Nerlens Noel probably could wake up in a new Bugatti soon:

Jon Hood sees Tod Lanter and Papa Brooks’ fish and raises them 30 lbs.:

Andrew and Aaron Harrison made things a little easier for their fellow students out by dressing in different colors for Prom:

For the record, Andrew’s the one on the right with the longer hair. If they kept the different hair styles at UK, that would really help me out.

+1 for the Willie is a hipster argument:

Maybe Willie would like school more if he took art history classes?

Just in case you were wondering, DeMarcus Cousins has a UK basketball court in his backyard:

McDonald’s advertising is clearly working on Tod Lanter:

In fact, he’s pretty much an addict now.

I’m going to post this Vine, but I bet none of you all will read what I’m typing once it starts playing:

You got some drool…right there. Yep, got it.

Chuck Hayes starts a fun debate:

I love that he includes one of my favorites:

I’ll bite. Here are my Top 5 favorite sports movies:

Rocky IV (Like Chuck, I dig the Russian plot)
Major League
A League of Their Own
Happy Gilmore

Honorable mention: Bend It Like Beckham

I trust you’ll blast me for my choices and leave your own in the comments section.

This exchange made me smile:

After he pushed LeBron James to the ground and got ejected on Friday night, Nazr Mohammad took to Twitter to apologize:

And here I thought I was a big Randall Cobb fan:

Patrick Towles sums up Andrew Wiggins’ decision quite nicely:

This may be the only time I’ve ever heard anyone praise a squirrel:

This week’s “Tweet that Makes You Go Aww” goes to Goose Givens, who made his mother a pecan pie cake from scratch for Mother’s Day:

I didn’t know such a thing existed. It looks delicious.

Papa Brooks may be all the way in Oregon, but he’s still got plenty of Wild Turkey to keep him busy:

TWEET OF THE WEEK: Willie Cauley-Stein Screen shot 2013-05-16 at 3.24.57 PM

Willie posted this picture of him skateboarding on Instagram earlier this week, but the comments it got were what made laugh. Check them out:

Orlando Antigua: You better be careful on that skateboard brother !

WCS: I will lol nothing crazy just cruising

Alex Poythress: Lol teach me

Kyle Wiltjer: you already know Alex would fall

Orlando Antigua: I going to need all of you @alexthegreat22 @kwiltj @squishywcs15 to not get any crazy ideas and quit playing with my emotions … Lol wish moms a happy Mother’s Day from me

I’m with Coach O, boys. Be careful…we’ve got a championship to win.

Until next time, RT plz?

    Pretty cool Cuz. At first I thought it was Boise State. Then I saw the UK in the corner.

    I think I would label Willie as ‘Bohemian’ before I would call him a hipster. Just my opinion. The word hipster has sort of gotten muddy in the last couple years.

    Top 5 sports movies in no particular order:
    Hoosiers (I don’t care that it’s Indiana – it’s one of the best basketball movies ever)
    Friday Night Lights
    He Got Game
    Above the Rim

    As always, the Goose is Golden. I followed him and James Lee throughout high school and college, those Bryan Station vs Henry Clay games were epic.
    My Mother made pecan pie from scratch, but I’ve never heard of pecan pie cake. Is that a family recipe? Looks tasty.

    Seems some fans have forgotten James Lee. He was the quiet guy, 6th man on the ’78 championship team, but when he came off the bench opponents ran and hid. He closed out the ’78 game against Duke the way I hope this years Stone Cold Killers finish their business. Watch, on youtube from, this is safe for work, unless you watching in Durham, NC.

    This might be the last year WCS will be able to ride a skateboard, when he gets to the NBA he will most likely be contractually banned from skateboarding.

    I agree with #15, gotta go with Remember the Titans followed by Friday Night Lights (the tv show was even better), and Rudy.

    Congratulations to Aaron Harrison. Can’t wait till October!
