Twitter really is an amazing place. Players, media and fans alike have all embraced the medium to provide endless entertainment. A perfect example of this is the ongoing Twitter "beef" between Sacramento Kings teammates DeMarcus Cousins and Isaiah Thomas.
The tale begins on Aug. 13, Cousins' 23rd birthday. Like any good teammate in this day in age, Thomas took to Twitter to wish Cousins a happy birthday, although he added a good-natured jab about the big man's lack of foot speed:
Happy bday 2 my Brodie @boogiecousins if I was with u I would slap the hell outta u and run jus Bcuz yo slow ass can't catch me— Isaiah Thomas (@Isaiah_Thomas2) August 13, 2013
Cousins naturally responded with a shot at Thomas' diminutive stature, and the "war" was on:
@Isaiah_Thomas2 haaaa!!! Thanks Brodie ...but I'm sure u tweeting me from ur high chair!— demarcus cousins (@boogiecousins) August 13, 2013
What followed was a rather hilarious string of barbs as both players made childish jokes about the other. And when I say "childish," I mean they literally made jokes about the other being a child:
Kids these days.
Stay tuned for the next round in this heavyweight Twitter bout.
