- JaVale McGee made noise this week... while snoozing—but not even that valiant effort could win the top slot in this week's NBA Social Rankings.
Welcome back to The Crossover’s weekly social media power rankings, where we determine who won the week off the court. Once again, Joel Embiid laid low, and JaVale McGee made noise… while snoozing. All around, this was a pretty good stretch. We’ll rank performances from best to worst. Here’s how the week shook out:
1. C.J. McCollum
good luck in the lottery show this year✊🏻— Chandler Parsons (@ChandlerParsons) January 28, 2017
*plays ‘Ether’ beat*
Ohhh, snap! C.J. absolutely flamed Chandler Parsons to take home the top spot this week. If you wanted to see what Chandler said in response, well, it doesn’t really matter. You can’t come back from that.
2. JaVale McGee
If not for one of the great tweets of the season, JaVale would have ran away with this week’s top prize. Days after getting some free Chick-fil-A, he actually had blankets made with Draymond Green’s sleeping face on them, handed them out, and Andre Iguodala put one over his body while he went to sleep. What an amazing performance.
Oh boy, Shaq wanted to clock Chuck right then.
4. Dion Waiters
More Waiters: "I’d rather go 0 for 30 than 0 for 9 because you go 0 for 9 that means you stopped shooting.That means you lost confidence."— Shandel Richardson (@ShandelRich) January 31, 2017
Goran Dragic and Dion Waiters now want to be called 7-Eleven. "We're always open," Dion said. (Think about it.)— Tim Reynolds (@ByTimReynolds) January 31, 2017
Dion Waiters says he is playing with that "philly cheese swag."— Shandel Richardson (@ShandelRich) January 31, 2017
Yeah, Dion’s back again with the fire quotes.
5. Cavs sideline reporter Allie Clifton
Wait, the Cavs were talking about WHAT?
6. Dwight Howard
Legendary stuff right here, posting your stats after a big win over your old team.
7. Dirk Nowitzki
I still have no idea what this is, but Dirk seemed to kill it.
8. Portland Trail Blazers
CJ McCollum is an example of somebody who's done an amazing job and is being recognized more and more— Trail Blazers (@trailblazers) February 3, 2017
9. Washington Wizards
Iggy's song after a Swaggy miss? That’s plain cruel, man.
10. Dallas Mavericks
This clearly took a lot of time and I appreciate it.
