basketball-for-reelsThe NBA season is once again upon us, my friends.  I was saving this Twitter hashtag for just the occasion.

Thanks to the twisted minds of Chris Hardwick and Comedy Central, we can now take our basketball and our movies, mix ‘em together and get… #basketballmovies.

Your job should you choose to accept it is to come up with a spin on a movie title and make it in some way basketball-related.  As you’ll see below, some of these hashtags are so silly, they’d make even a 76ers fan smile.

For those of you without a Twitter account, here are some of the more hysterical Basketball Movie Tweets.  Feel free to add more in the comments section below.  Oh, and be prepared to laugh out loud.

  1. Ya know what, D?

    I’m not too sure this site format allows people to post pictures in the comments section… which kinda sucks. I’ll ask my web guy.

    But now I have this image of George Muresan in FAO Schwartz jumping up and down on that floor piano with Robert Loggia.

    Starring Danny Ainge and Vlade Divac

    …With a guest appearance by the Michael Jordan meme
