Users can now follow an unlimited number of social media accounts. We can connect with our friends and family, as well as with our favorite brands and people, and even with celebrities. Instagram and Twitter accounts give fans a sneak peek into the lives of our best stars in Hollywood and the big leagues of sports.

Athletes occasionally provide the most honest accounts, but only sometimes. Most of the time, athletes need more time to stay in shape and win titles to take care of their social media accounts. Some people, like NBA champion Kevin Durant, take care of their own Twitter and Instagram accounts.

The star of the Brooklyn Nets is known for having a social media account under a fake name that he uses to protect himself. Leading pundits and broadcasters frequently break down a player’s performance, like Durant’s, but rarely discuss the athletes’ reactions.

Even top analysts who provide betting advice on major league sports in the US focus on details like stats, injuries, and other factors when creating lines for sportsbooks. The emphasis is on performance, rather than personality, which means stars like Durant who post genuine thoughts and reactions onto their social media page often earn extra love from the public for their honesty.

Let’s take a closer look at some of social media’s most endearing profiles run by athletes themselves.

Chris Paul, NBA

@CP3 

Many of Chris Paul’s 8 million+ followers on Twitter are likely there to hear about any updates to the NBA player’s star career. However, the Phoenix Suns star has endeared many with his tongue-in-cheek tweets that take playful stabs at other players and expound on his personal trials.

Some of his best posts are about how he watched his dad show his mom how her shake weight works or asked Dwyane Wade to stop the Rockets from making a game-winning shot at the end. He also shares the occasional inspirational quote. Paul is one of the smallest players in the NBA. He often tells other people to follow their dreams no matter what.

Adam Jones, MLB & NPL

@SimplyAJ10

Adam Jones is an outfielder who has played for the MLB and Japan’s NPL. Jones has played his sport in Japan and the US, so his Twitter posts often give fans something extra.

Jones’s posts cover many topics, from how ugly but useful he thinks his feet are to how proud he is to help young baseball players achieve their dreams. His skill is using clips from funny and sad Will Smith movies to show how he feels.

In one of his most recent tweets, he shared a clip of Will Smith crying in The Pursuit of Happyness. He did this as a response to a touching video of a man shaving his head to show support for a sick friend.

Social media accounts

Kevin Durant, NBA

@KDTrey5

As was already said, there is little that Durant won’t do on his social media accounts, which may be a good thing. Since the NBA recently fined the player $50,000 for sending private messages to celebrity Michael Rappaport, many fans would also like to see his DMs.

Durant’s posts stand out because he isn’t afraid to shout out other celebrities, like Scarlett Johansson and Rihanna, and other NBA stars, like Steph Curry, who he has invited to a horse match.

Durant has also talked about how he feels about clubbing, getting robbed by a dog, thinking about food, and fighting with fans over who knows more about basketball history.

Rickie Fowler, PGA

@RickieFowler

Rickie Fowler is a professional golfer but has yet to win any majors. His Twitter and Instagram accounts are helping him get more fans, though. First, Fowler is known for wearing bright colors and patterns that aren’t usually associated with the sport.

Other pictures have shown Fowler having a good time with his friends, with fast cars, private jets, and other mouth-watering things. Even though he doesn’t use social media as much as some people, his accounts have a good mix of curated material and cheeky details about his life.
