Amir Johnson leads the NBA in......

A Bunch Of NBA Players Follow Porn Stars And Booty Models On Twitter


Despite the intimate and immediate access Twitter provides, a lot of famous people still don't really understand how public it is. A direct message can become a tweet in a second, and everything else you do on the service is painfully, obviously public, whether it's stupid tweets or the list of who you follow.

Marcus Jordan had problems with this when he accidentally tweeted a DM meant for a porn star, and then, after denying it was sincere, turned out to be following her. It also turns out that, when it comes to some of the more famous Twitters out there, NBA players have interesting following habits. These two combined stories made me wonder: how many NBA players actually follow porn stars and racy models on Twitter?

First step: I followed ~350 NBA players, mostly current, a few former. Second step: I used the Internet to figure out the porn stars and models with particularly large web followings. (The Internet is good for that.)

For example: The above porn star, Sara Jay, is followed by Cleveland Cavs star Kyrie Irving, Toronto Raptors forward Amir Johnson (you'll see his name a lot in this story), and former Bobcats player Sherron Collins.
