Dear New York Knicks, Reconsider the Tyrese Takeover

[ 22 ] March 3, 2013 |

I woke up to folks’ tweets about Tyrese taking over the New York Knicks’ Twitter handle later today during their game. I am here to ask the Knicks to think twice. Because. For reasons. I hope this makes it to their management before it’s too late. Do your part. Share it. Kthx.

Dear New York Knicks,

So about this #TyreseTakeover of yours. Are you sure you want to do this? Are you super sure? Because you know, it’s Tyrese. No shade.

Knicks Tyrese Takeover

Whose idea was this? Was it the general manager or your social media manager?  Someone came up with a grand plan to have a celebrity tweet from your account and it isn’t a bad idea at all. And this person presented the idea to someone else and collaboratively, y’all came up with  Tyrese as the person.

Having notable guest tweeters is actually a great way to get more eyes on your account but the person you choose matters. Out of EVERYONE yall picked Tyrese? Why him? Is he known for his super insightful sports commentary? Is he even known to be a massive sports fan?

But beyond that, Knickerbockers. Have you SEEN Tyrese’s tweets? If you have, I’m not sure you’d be so hyped to entrust your account to him. The man spells like grammar, syntax and spelling rules are merely soft suggestions.




Two years later and I’m still only 50% sure that he was trying to say “kryptonite.”

Also, he has his own hashtag on No, really. There are 4 pages worth of Tyrese tweets on there. Plus, he’s ended up on the Dumbest Tweets of 2010, 2011 and 2012 list. A three-time finalist, that guy is!

This is who you’re gonna have run your Twitter account for 3 hours, Knicks? Well good luck. I’m just looking out for you. Before you become known as the NBA team that spells like a 4th grader who sleeps through English class. Y’all better run all his tweet through spellcheck before you let him his “sent” because otherwise… Nawl.

Either way, I’ll be watching the @NYKnicks feed very closely. I need more material for anyway.

Yours in cautioning,


So whatcha’ll think? Are you looking forward to this #TyreseTakeover? I AM!

    Just a quick note: Spellcheck only works when you’re in the general vicinity of the correct spelling. Like, perhaps you forgot the old rhyme about I before E or you left out an S in Mississippi. Tyrese is NEVER in the neighborhood of anything he misspells. He’s still in that first grade inventive spelling stage of life where you just put a bunch of letters together and go, “TA DAHHH!!”

    I see a chance for a spin-off like CSI and Law and Order. DumbestTweets: NBA edition.

    From the Oscars last week to this tonight? Sunday entertainment (or not) is looking up.

    I’m not by any means a fan of Tyrese, BUT, your hounding of him is beginning to seem like cyber bullying. I love reading most of the stuff you put out though.
