Tweets of the Week - Dec. 3-9
The Bucks recovered nicely this past week to beat the Bobcats and Nets after dropping their first two games against the Hornets and Spurs.
In the third edition of tweets of the week, spanning Dec. 3—Dec. 9, the NBA’s all-time leading scorer reaches out to congratulate Larry Sanders, Marquis Daniels makes an early 90s R&B reference, and Drew Gooden is flattered by Bucks fans.
This series will continue each week throughout the season, so be sure to use the hashtags #Bucks, #GoBucksGo, and #MILvOPP (OPP = opposing team’s code, ex: CHI) before, during, and after games.
Larry had already earned praise from just about everyone else, so why not from one of the greatest players in history of the game?
Congratulations @larrysanders of the Milwaukee Bucks for tying my single-game franchise record 10 blocked shots. Great job!

I need to get some clarification from Brandon on this one…
Kobe Bryant the greatest to ever lace them up.

Perks of sitting near team benches.
I think Ty Thomas calls Hakim Warrick "Rick".

So, the Bucks have done well at home against Charlotte.

I think we can all relate to this.

Drew has one of the most genuine and entertaining personalities I have come across in the NBA.
Just wanna tell you guys how happy I was when I saw the crowds reaction the other night! Whenever I get my chance, I won't let you down MKE

Seemingly always shining again under the New York City lights.
Preliminary results indicate that Brandon Jennings might not know the difference between Madison Square Garden and Barclays Center.

Might be on to something, here…
My feelings remain the same: When Udoh and Sanders can get past the early parts of the game without fouling, they're a great starting duo.

I found this humorous, as the Nets struggled.
The Nets don't make a satisfaction guarantee to fans, do they?

Comeback kids, at it again.
Since 11-2 start for the Nets, Bucks have gone 42-20.

Always enjoy when Larry's Twitter matches his on-court enthusiasm.

Must be on the Most Improved Player short list (so far).
Larry Sanders played a career high 38 minutes tonight. Can't believe his improvement vs last season.

I thought it was pretty nice that Marquis re-tweeted this.
@marquis_daniels can this huge Bucks fan get a retweet? I am the fan you threw your towel to after the Bulls preseason game!! #auburn#Bucks— Ty Derby (@TyDerby) December 10, 2012
My passions? Writing and the Bucks, to start. So it is good to be here. I have reported on media row for just about every Bucks home game since 2009-10 – almost all of that time writing for BrewHoop. I have also written for the Milwaukee Brewers Baseball Club, SB Nation, ESPN Milwaukee, Slam Online, etc. You can follow me on Twitter @alexboeder or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
