Best Athlete Tweets Of The Week: RG3, Andy Roddick, Metta World Peace, More On Twitter (JUNE 8-14)


From the NBA Finals and the French Open final to the season finale of Game Of Thrones, there was plenty of quality programming on television this week. Like the rest of us, prominent athletes were riveted -- and commenting on Twitter.

As per usual, the top athlete tweets ranged insightful to bewildering, with references ranging from Craigslist roommates to the latest summer blockbusters. At least one athlete flirted with Kate Upton while another sent out a defiant message after being sentenced to 30 days in jail. Troublingly, one of the sports world's Twitter all-stars briefly quit the social media platform. Thankfully, his absence didn't last very long.

We've once again 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. Let us know which athlete you believe had this week's best tweet.
