Meeting a NBA legend is exciting, especially if you can get a selfie you can share on social media to document your experience. But it can get a little weird if that legend's name is similar to a current player in the NBA:

Yep, that's Boston Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas pointing out he's not the person @highsteppin meant to tag in this selfie featuring Detroit Pistons legend Isiah Thomas. The tweeter fixed her error, but then the self-identifying Pistons fan proceeded to go on a rant against the newer, Celtics player for calling out her mistake. She was not happy:

If you know anything about Twitter, you probably don't need us to tell you the tweets only get worse from here, but here we are, telling you that just to be safe.
Moral of the story: Always get the proper spelling of the person's Twitter handle before you take a selfie with them.
