Valentine’s Day can be a very controversial holiday. Some use it as a day to express their feelings for a significant other or their family. Others criticize it as a corporate scheme and instead use it to eat ice cream and watch Netflix.

But Twitter is always pretty great on Valentine’s Day — and especially pro sports Twitter. As usual, NBA team accounts were one of the day’s highlights, getting pretty creative to wish their fans a happy Valentine’s Day.

The Western Conference-leading Golden State Warriors included some clever basketball puns. Featuring Draymond Green, Shaun Livingston, Damion Lee and DeMarcus Cousins:

Not to be outdone, the Milwaukee Bucks wanted to show off their position atop the NBA standings. Featuring team mascot Bango:

Next, there were some controversial Tweets. The Chicago Bulls tried to team up with Dunkin’ Donuts, but swung and missed with a pretty lame pun:

The New Orleans Pelicans seem to have mixed up their holidays. Rather than spread love and joy, the team’s Tweet might have been better suited for Halloween, as they featured the nightmare-fueling King Cake Baby:

Meanwhile, the Atlanta Hawks forgot exactly what a heart looked like:

But the clear winners of the day were the Sacramento Kings. The team is in the hunt for a playoff spot for the first time in years, and their 2018-19 season just keeps getting better. They targeted other teams around the league:

Happy Valentine’s Day, NBA fans!
