Atlanta Hawks with funny Twitter diss to Portland Trail Blazers


The Eastern Conference in the NBA is pretty woeful, especially in comparison to the Western Conference.

Only two teams in the West have nine wins or less. Meanwhile, in the East, ten teams have yet to eclipse the nine win total, which lead to a relatively assuming shot taken by the Portland Trail Blazers Twitter account on Wednesday afternoon.

The Blazers, who sit at an impressive 16-3 aren’t even the best team in their conference, though in the Eastern conference they’d be sitting just behind the Indiana Pacers with a few game gap separating them and the third place Miami Heat.

Suggesting such, the Trail Blazers’ Twitter account asked the following:

Chuckle worthy.

The Atlanta Hawks, who ended up defeating fellow Western Conference power, the Los Angeles Clippers later Wednesday evening didn’t think it was too funny, so they thought they’d pass along this help:

Crispy, crackly, burnt.

It might not be as good as the social media battle between two Minor League Baseball teams, but it was still pretty solid.

    Portland did not play Atlanta on the 4th? What are you talking about?

    Last I checked Blazers were the best in the west and the slippers are not a powerhouse, barely even the best team in LA
