Best Athlete Tweets Of The Week (December 12th-19th): LeBron James, James Harrison Make List

12/21/2011 03:04 pm ET

This installment of Best Athlete Tweets provided us with a mixed bag of musings from athletes playing various sports. Andre Carter, out for the season after suffering a knee injury on Sunday, made the best of his situation by noting that his injury would likely improve his aptitude at the "stanky leg" dance. In addition, James Harrison, serving a one game suspension, reveled in the power outage at Candlestick Park in San Francisco that delayed the game. And Paul Bisonnette, a frequent contributor, asked a good question on nobody's mind: If the Bears win the Superbowl does Sam Hurd still get a ring?

As usual, we've scoured our timeline from the past week to bring you what we believe to be the best of the best that athletes have to offer via Twitter. Vote on which athlete you believe had this week's best tweet. The winner will be given remarkable Interweb cred and 140 characters worth of salutations via the @HuffPostSports Twitter account.
