Even though they tried to follow the rule of the NBA’s new social media policy, NHL teams had some fun with the new NBA rules on Twitter.

The NBA has a new social media policy and NHL teams are having fun with these new rules on Twitter.

The NBA recently sent a memo to its teams outlining their new social media policy which states that teams can’t troll or take shots at each other on social media.

Some NHL teams social media accounts tried to follow the NBA commissioner Adam Silver’s new rules but just wound up making a joke out of it.


The Sacramento Kings, who many people credit for the new social media rules, got into the fun after seeing what the Dallas Stars were doing on Twitter.

Even the Cleveland Indians got in on the action, saying that it’s been 14 years since the Kings had a lead in a playoff series. The Kings only championship came in 1951 when they were the Rochester Royals. The Indians haven’t won a title since 1948.

While the NBA has made it impossible for teams to have fun off the court, at least other sports teams can still have their fun on social media.
