Best Athlete Tweets Of The Week: Aaron Rodgers, Ty Lawson, Metta World Peace And More (JUNE 15-21)


Whether you're a center fielder in the major leagues or an armchair quarterback, you were likely watching -- and tweeting about -- the NBA Finals this week. The thrilling series between the Spurs and the Heat drew plenty of commentary from the athlete Twitterati. Whether it was LeBron's headband or the Spurs' heartbreaking loss in Game 6, many pro athletes were riveted by the action.

Of course, the Heat's repeat championship was hardly the only trending topic. It was a week when 140-character missives touched on subjects ranging from the musical to the macabre. There was also Merion. Kanye dropped new album and an unusual name for his daughter in short succession, Justin Rose outdueled Phil Mickelson for the US Open title, and Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez found himself embroiled in an on-going homicide investigation.
