The NBA offseason has been as good a time as any to stay glued to Twitter for the latest and greatest on #WojBombs and Joel Embiid jokes.
Thursday night's NBA Draft was no exception. It was an action packed night that included the Philadelphia 76ers getting their man at No. 1, the Lakers getting the Big Baller Brand at No. 2, and a blockbuster of a deal for the Minnesota Timberwolves to land Jimmy Butler from the Chicago Bulls.

Twitter released some data behind the big night and much to the surprise of no one, Embiid and Woj dominated. And Lonzo Ball and the Lakers created plenty of buzz.
There were 3.2 million tweets about the draft last night!
Lonzo was the most tweeted about player with Fultz coming in at No. 2. And if you include the most tweeted about people, Lonzo and his dad LaVar came in at No. 1 and No. 3 respectively, with Jimmy Butler in between.
But when it came to the most retweeted posts of the night, it all belonged to The Process.
Embiid had the most RT'd post of the night, declaring the Sixers' new squad the FEDS.
The Lakers selecting Lonzo came in at No. 2:
Followed by the #WOJBOMB:
Chicago is finalizing a deal to send Jimmy Butler to Minnesota for Zach LaVine, Kris Dunn and No. 7 pick, league source says.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojVerticalNBA) June 22, 2017
Woj cracked the list again with a report on Paul George rumors. The Lakers had three of the top 15 most RT'd posts. The Celtics and Kevin Durant got some love. But Joel Embiid was the only athlete to get two of the top-15 most RT'd tweets.
Respect The Process on Twitter.
