NBA Twitter is a huge thing. Here are some of the best follows in the Philadelphia 76ers‘ Twitter Universe.

More than any other sport, Twitter provides an outlet for nearly constant chatter, discussion and feedback for fans, players, media and teams to interact. For many sports fans in Philadelphia, WIP, SportsCenter, Philly Sports Talk and the Daily News are thier main sources of news and discussion.

But what if I told you that the real talent is being crowdsourced now? What if there was a place where very insightful people interacted with players in real time? If you haven’t considered Twitter for sports before and think of it like Facebook, the distinctions are very real and absolutely key.

Facebook is intended to keep in touch with people you know. Twitter is for keeping up with people you wish you knew.

Please allow me to introduce you to some great follows. I’m going to split this up in some logical groupings — analysis, NBA related humor, national media — but first lets get to know our contributors here at The Sixer Sense.

Chris is our site expert, a great follow and an excellent source of news, information and analysis.

Pete, you arent alone…..

I’m starting to think that Brian Isn’t a #Prokafor.

Jackson is our resident GM. Always looking for that deal.

Trust me Owen, these seats will be much more expensive on StubHub next year.

Just so you don’t think I’m a complete homer, I fully intend to yell out “Blunder from down under!” after Ben’s first turnover. #FairandBalanced

Where else are you going to find Justin Anderson content? Nowhere else, I’m fairly certain.

I’m book-ending this section with our other site expert Bret Stuter. He makes a strong argument here.

The National Media

#Godner has to go first here. He is putting out the best pay wall content in the business. Derek is Philadelphia-focused but also is one of the best in the nation at draft analysis.

They call it a #WojBomb. No one breaks NBA news quite like the Woj. Great podcast host also.

Shams is Woj for millenials… He is an up-and-comer and has broken some great stories this offseason.

Ramona is excellent. Good humor and insight and very good reporting.

Excellent long form takes from Tjarks.

Coach Nick is outstanding.

Unparralleled Draft analysis.

Spike may not like his categorization here. Truth is Spike could fit in so many categories including dogfather of The Process. He is woven into the fabric of Philadelphia sports as we know it. As program director at WIP and the host of The Rights to Ricky Sanchez podcast, Spike is the center of the Sixers Twitter universe. If you’ve seen the highlights of the lottery party, well Spike is the founder, host and organizer. Thanks Spike! #ISaidtheName

Vincent Freshman is his real name, probably. Always good for a Hinkie reference, joke or mild trolling.

Preposterous, and things of that nature…

There are legitimately hundreds of others I could recommend and I apologize for any that I have excluded. I would highly recommend augmenting your NBA entertainment experience with this outlet where takes are hot, in real time and never ending. Apologies in advance for your new addiction.
