NBA players react on twitter to UConn beating Kentucky for NCAA championship
Every NBA player had the night off — no games in the Association — and most of them spent the night the same way you did: Watching the NCAA Championship game. They saw a great performance by Shabazz Napier (he got a lot of twitter love from NBA players) and saw UConn knocking off Kentucky for the Huskies fourth national title.
And they were tweeting about it, too.
Here are some of the highlights from NBA players on twitter during the game:
