After last week’s Twitter beef between Chandler Parsons and C.J. McCollum which was instigated by the Trail Blazers official Twitter account, the NBA sent out a memo to all teams to try and curtail the trash talking between teams on social media.
“Teams are prohibited from mocking and/or ridiculing opponents (including teams, players, team personnel (including owners) and opponents’ home cities) and game officials on social media in any form, including through statements, pictures or videos.”
During last night’s Hawks-Kings game both teams decided they’d have some fun trolling the NBA by sarcastically acting as if they were BFF’s throughout the night.
This all excellent and hopefully the league doesn’t punish both of these teams for openly mocking them in such a creative fashion.
