Preseason is officially here. We're excited, fans are excited and so are the players and coaches, of course. On this fine Friday afternoon, we bring you some of our favorite tweets to begin the journey in 2013.
Please note: We value originality in these parts, so anything that included a "rise and grind" and/or "#hardworkdedication" were pretty much immediately disqualified.
