NBA Awards show is the talk of Twitter

A sampling of social reaction to the show in its debut

The NBA and its fans on Twitter have made it their mission to see to it that the league receives year-round coverage, even during its “offseason.” (Is it really an offseason with so much breaking news in the two weeks since the NBA Finals concluded?)

On Monday, the league maximized this no-days-off attitude by announcing the All-Rookie and All-Defensive teams just after noon and finishing off the day with Drake hosting the league’s inaugural NBA Awards ceremony.

Here are some of the news and the best social posts on the NBA’s big Monday:

Rhiannon Walker is an associate editor at The Undefeated. She is a drinker of Sassy Cow Creamery chocolate milk, an owner of an extensive Disney VHS collection, and she might have a heart attack if Frank Ocean doesn't drop his second album.
