Kevin Durant
"Go grab that "selfmade" featuring my brother @Wale and the homies @MeekMill pill and @rickyrozay http://bit.ly/SelfMadeiTunes"
How I See It: Try to keep that away from Russell Westbrook. Anything with "self" in it can't help him.

Kristi Yamaguchi
"Big thx to everyone who came out to Costco yesterday! If u snapped a pic, be sure to upload & tag on Facebook. :)"
How I See It: Oh, the downfall of Olympic figure skaters. It has come to this: Promoting a book next to 48-packs of soda. Too bad the golden years are long gone.

JaVale McGee
"Goin to chipotle then weights -P"
How I See It: So in other words, you're going to down 1000 calories and then try to burn it all off? My recommendation would be to at least settle for a burrito bowl.

Kevin Durant
"Man they be cheatin terrible on angry birds...make me wanna throw my phone out the window.."

David Ortiz
"Check me out in the streets of New York. Thanks again @MLBFanCave . http://bit.ly/k0dp7d"
How I See It: These hugs are definitely staged (not that I'm a biased Yankee fan or anything).

Marshall Faulk
"Please don't tell me the heat can't close this one out."
How I See It: Yeah, they can finish games. It’s not like you’re watching the Knicks…

Lance Armstrong
"Is it really already May?"
How I See It: Can you really not read a calendar?

Kevin Durant
"Tough game, but we have to stay positive! Thanks for the inspiration!! Back to work tomorrow!"

Maurice Jones-Drew
"I switch my pick bc the bears have todd collins in... And the packers D is on attack mode"

How I See It: Mojo: I know you’re not used to picking teams because you are too busy playing for the Jags, but typically once you say one team will win… your pick is locked and it cannot be changed given the events of the game.

Alexi Lalas
"That should be a throw-in for the Jets."

How I See It: I know you're a soccer commentator, but still... you should know that there are no throw-ins in AMERICAN football.

Leigh Bodden
"JETS can't stop that fuel from leakin.. #sittinontherunway"

How I See It: I hope you’re not talking about the BP oil spill… because they plugged that a few months ago.

"The happiest people dont necessarily have the best of everything but they make the most of everything."

How I See It: No, those types of people are called resourceful.

How I See It: I wonder what PETA is going to have to say about that.

LeBron James
"Oh and by the way, UCONN women's team ain't gone ever lose a game again!! Haa. Congrats ladies!!"

How I See It: Why are you trying to live vicariously through a women’s college basketball team?

Frank Walker II
"Y would u steal from ur friends u idiot."

How I See It: Well, one plausible reason could be that your friends would not expect it was you who actually stole from them.

Jonny Flynn
"First they love you, then they hate you, then they love you again hahahahahaha"

How I See It: Don’t see the humor in this one. Sorry, Jonny.

Deion Sanders

Chad OchoCinco
"#random doing my Argentine Tango routine from DWTS while listening to Ramsey Lewis song entitled Cancìon, good workout before meetings"

How I See It: I don’t think he realizes that he was booted from “Dancing with the Stars” yet. Poor Chad.

Deion Sanders
"McNaab got benched. Moss got released on his off day and Childress may get fired at halftime ."

How I See It: Yup, sounds like a typical week in the NFL to me.

Kevin Durant
"What's good tweeple? Shout out to Amare for still rollin with the KD2's"

How I See It: Amar’e knows how to play in style.

Brandon Jennings
"Watching watever is on TV.…"

How I See It: You make it sound difficult to find a good program to watch on NFL Sunday.

Sinorice Moss
"I Love that I have a great relationship with my parents. I Love you so much Lloyd & Natalie Moss. #thankful"

How I See It: I don’t think he got the memo: Thanksgiving is on the 25th.

Joe Namath
"Throwing to a receiver CROSSING the field short of the first rarely picks it up."

How I See It: Get Rex Ryan on the phone and tell him that yourself. The Jets need all the help they can get — they got lucky with their overtime win.

Shaun Phillips
"It just goes to show you that every game take 4 whole qtrs. Thanks for still believing in us love u guys."

How I See It: I thought the NFL switched games to be three periods instead of four quarters long. Thanks for the clarification.

Allan Houston
"Life is all about God's timing. Be prepared for your time!"

How I See It: Really? I always thought that shot against the Heat in '99 was all skill.

Billy Donovan
"Follow @GatorZoneMBK today at SEC Basketball Media days...UF goes from 11-1:10 p.m."

How I See It: Ah, Billy, keep working on that mediocre NCAA team. Dwight Howard and Rashard Lewis clearly were not worthy.

Kurt Warner
"Morning y'all... trying 2 give u something good, but got NOTHING this a.m. sorry, maybe later - Lil Jimmy says keep smiling in the meantime!"

How I See It: Sadly, Kurt Warner's twitter page is more exciting than the entire NFC West.

Danilo Gallinari
"Nice dinner out with my friend andrea..now ready to sleep..let's do it.."

How I See It: Aw, man. I thought Danilo had a hot date until I realized the Knicks were in Toronto.

Freddy Adu
"Thanks guys"

How I See It: No, thank you, Freddy ... for never living up to the hype and playing seven years of average soccer.

Michael Strahan
"Congrats to the Texas Rangers. The better team won!! I have ties to both states so its a win win for me.... Go Rangers!!!"

How I See It: Really, Michael? So, who are you going to root for on Monday night? Giants or Cowboys? Pick the wrong answer, and you will never be on a Subway commercial in the state of New York ever again.

JR Celski
"scratch that... they just hit #28!"

How I See It: Somebody's a little confused. The Yankees would have gotten #28 if they won the World Series. The Rangers beat them though.

Kevin Durant
"Monta Ellis makes it look so easy when he plays!!! Always enjoy watchin him hoop"

How I See It: And this guy's humble too? I like Kevin a lot better than that OTHER MVP candidate.

Carmelo Anthony
"“I’m committed. Are you? http://OFA.BO/?” #Retweet"

How I See It: Hahahahaha. Committed to what? Demanding a trade?

LeBron James
"Akron, OH!! Best city in the WORLD!! Catch up"

How I See It: Hypocrite.

How I See It: Oh come on, that’s a bad joke if it even is one.

Donte Whitner
"Embarrassed!"

How I See It: Hey keep your head up, champ. At least you guys scored seven points!

Kevin Durant
"As long as the cowboys lost I'm good lol"

How I See It: Couldn’t agree with you more even if I tried. Well said.

Jonny Flynn
"Vick is ballin!!! Now let's see what they say now!!!"

How I See It: The old Vick is back. Looks like Kevin Kolb is in serious physical – and soon emotional – trouble.

Serena Williams
"Sibling rivalry... Manning vs Manning. which one ru rooting for? Sunday night football.. Giants or Colts??"

How I See It: You’re no stranger to the sibling rivalry.

Joe Namath
"Now we're talkin!! J-E-T-S! JETS! JETS! JETS!!!"

How I See It: You know how to use Twitter?!

Reggie Bush
"Just ate In N Out for the second day straight with my teammates. I know I'm fat! Lol! Now at movies about to watch The Town"

How I See It: He gave his Heisman back and he’s apparently very depressed and eating his sorrows away. I hope he realizes he has a game tomorrow.

Johnny Knox
"Just reached 5k followers."

How I See It: I love how this is a bigger feat to you than beating the Cowboys in their home opener.

"Final thought for the day. We drive on parkways and we park on driveways. Think about it......."

How I See It: You knew the Jets can run the ball. But you didn’t know that Aristotle snaps the ball to Mark Sanchez on every play.

"My UAV is online"

How I See It: I really hope he is talking about Call of Duty and not a real unmanned aerial vehicle. Please.

Donte Whitner
"I go in my direction!"

How I See It:I hope that direction is down. Because if so you are on the right team: the Buffalo Bills, with new coach Chan Gailey.

Kevin Durant
"I SEE POLOW DA DON, MYA AND ALL THESE CELEBS AT DA LAKERS, CAVS GAMES..WHAT ABOUT OKC GAMES?WE GOT A GREAT CROWD AND WE PLAY HARD EVERYNITE"

Chad Ochocinco
"@andyroddick so when do you want to make this tennis match happen, I'm sure we can raise money for our charities (you'll lose to)"

How I See It: Child please.

Tito Ortiz
"Weighed 220 when I woke up.I will cut 8lbs tonight. Sleep off 1 1/2lbs.Run off the last 5lbs tomorrow.Yes I will eat a very little of food."

How I See It: 8 pounds in 1 day!? I couldn't lose that if I physically cut it off of me.

Jay Feely
"Whether you want to admit it, there is an anti Christian bias that exists now perpetuated by atheist who want no mention of God in public"

How I See It: Let's stick to kicking field goals, Jay. Maybe that bias you speak of is perpetuated by foolishness like this tweet.

Kevin Durant
