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:

Cousins naturally responded with a shot at Thomas' diminutive stature, and the "war" was on:

Stay tuned for the next round in this heavyweight Twitter bout.
