A [twitter] thread of Chinese internet nicknames for NBA players.

A twitter thread that is highly deserving of your time.

Grasping frantically for a disposable protective undergarment. This is so great.

Nothing like a sky fuck on a Simmons mattress.

I would be so deeply appreciative if they would take this same approach to writing English language assembly and operating manuals. I don't object to having to use my imagination.

Not sure what Greg Oden's nickname is, but there are various possibilities which might include single syllable words that are familiar to people in both China and the US.

Nashville Predators, coached by Peter Laviolette, vs Winnipeg Jets, coached by Paul Maurice (The Grover Cleveland of the Hurricanes), face off for a deciding game seven tonight. The winner of this game not only moves on to the Western Conference finals, but they also win the highly coveted 'Canes Cup. The loser of this game is still happy to not be in Raleigh at the moment.

NBC really dropped the ball (puck?) in not having John Forslund call this game. Forslund, btw, is the Hurricanes' TV play by play guy.

Chairman Mo is your inaugural 'Canes Cup winner. Maybe he'll bring that stately trophy back to Raleigh with him when he gets hired for this third time around
