This weekend was jam-packed. NBA Playoffs have entered the second round and we get to see who’s really a contender. LeBron James is now a four-time MVP, which puts him in a very special category. Floyd Mayweather taught Robert Guerrero an ultimate boxing lesson with a swollen hand. We saw a lot of great sports action across the landscape and Twitter was the place to be.
Yup, that’s pretty much how this works.
Blake Griffin on Twitter hate: "I could tweet 'I love oranges.' And someone out there is going to be like, '[Screw] you, I love apples."

It is rather strange, but that doesn’t change the Mint Juleps.
Slightly unsettled that Yum Brands is the sponsor of the Derby seeing as they were found using, you know, horse meat in their food. Um.

You may as well have fun with it.
My horse Palice Malace is awesome. I'm very proud of my horse:) win baby WIN

That’s what happens when you run your mouth.
It's like @floydmayweather is saying to Ruben Guerrero "I'm going to DESTROY your son and make you watch."

Or you could take some responsibility and quit trash-talking.

So you’re subtweeting now?

It does feel that way.
Derrick Rose dunk from the free throw line then turn around and be like naw fellas, not today

Simply stated and no need for more.

Better learn how to change it up.
NYK tried applying same ball pressure as they did vs. BOS. Problem is that the Pacers have real point guards.

There is nothing wrong with trying new things.
— Russell Wilson (@DangeRussWilson) May 6, 2013
I don’t think I want to see that fight.
Klitschko beats another dummy. Well done. Whats the point. Devaluing their legacies. Fight your brother. See whose the best. Come on!
— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) May 4, 2013
That is crazy on so many levels.
Consecutive title defense record at heavyweight: 1. Joe Louis (25), 2. Larry Holmes (20), 3. Wladimir Klitschko (14). #boxing

I’d pay for this.
Not for nothing, I'd love to see a Mayweather/Bradley fight too..

Do better, D.C.
No fan base has a higher rate of jerseys tucked into pants than the Washington Capitals.

It was slightly better than the field at his stadium.
RG3 at the Kentucky Derby. Dan Snyder wants him to test track conditions.

We’ve seen this movie before.
The Nets paid Joe Johnson $19.7M this season, I assume they expected him to at least score a point in the 1st half of a Game 7.
— Brian Windhorst (@WindhorstESPN) May 5, 2013
He might have had a better chance that way.
P.J. Carlesimo deserved better. What was he supposed to do, take Joe Johnson's shots for him?
— Russ Bengtson (@russbengtson) May 5, 2013
He was pretty awful.
Prokorov dispatching some henchman as we speak. It will be a Law & Order episode, Joe Johnson found in a trunk of a car in Brighton Beach
— Mike Bell (@mikebell790) May 5, 2013
Let’s see if they can make it happen.
This playoffs could end up being the Grizzlies revenge tour. Already beat the team that eliminated them in 2012. Nowfacing 2011 eliminator

The rich really do get richer.
Rumor at the track is Tom Brady put $4700 on Orb to win
