Tweet Beat...Darington Hobson Surgery Style

Sorry it has been a while since my last "Tweet Beat" post. Ask a quick refresher, these are actual tweets sent by a Cheesehead athlete. For this installment of The Tweet Beat, I wanted to show how up to the minute and personal Twitter can really be. Often people tweet about mundane things in their life but that is not the case for this installment of The Tweet Beat.

Let me quickly set the stage for the following tweets. Milwaukee Bucks rookie guard Darington Hobson (ParkaySmooth) recently required surgery for hip issues. Instead of getting information through traditional media outlets, Hobson gave a blow-by-blow account of his hip surgery via twitter. Check out some of Hobson's tweets from Tuesday, October 12, 2010:

Tweet #1: "Today is the day I'm goin in (wanye voice)" tweeted at 6:43 AM on October 12, 2010.

Tweet #2: "@TheHoopsReport not true I will not miss the hole season" tweeted at 8:00 PM on October 12, 2010.

Tweet #3: "Surgery went well followers ! Back to sleep I go" tweeted at 8:01 PM on October 12, 2010.

Tweet #4: "No1 feel sorry for me I'm good as u could see hahah click for picture" tweeted at 11:46 PM on October 12, 2010.

My Thoughts:
I am on the record right after the 2010 NBA Draft saying that Milwaukee Bucks general manager John Hammond should have packaged his three second round picks in the 2010 NBA Draft to move into the first round to select Xavier shooting guard Jordan Crawford. Instead, Hammond held on to all three second round picks to select: Darington Hobson, Jerome Jordan, and Keith "Tiny" Gallon.

As the above tweets show, Darington Hobson is the only person on the planet that thinks he will actually play for the 2010-11 Milwaukee Bucks. Shortly after the 2010 NBA Draft, Jerome Jordan was shipped to the New York Knicks for cash considerations and currently plays in Serbia. Finally, Keith "Tiny" Gallon was released a week ago by the Bucks.

With Jordan Crawford lighting up the preseason for the Atlanta Hawks, my prediction looks even smarter. So would the Bucks rather have Jordan Crawford or an injured Darington Hobson? Only time will tell, but there is no doubt the 2010-11 Milwaukee Bucks would be much better off with Crawford than Hobson.

If you want to follow Darington Hobson, check out his Twitter handle ParkaySmooth. I hope you enjoyed the most recent installment of The Tweet Beat. I will have another installment of The Tweet Beat as soon as a Cheesehead athlete tweets something interesting.
