In annual NBA Twitter rankings, the Philadelphia 76ers have come out on top with the best account in the game.

Another day, another award for the Philadelphia 76ers.

A day after Robert Covington and Joel Embiid were named to the NBA’s All-Defense team, and a week after Ben Simmons became a finalist for the NBA Rookie of the Year award, the Sixers are once again being acknowledged for their fantastic 2017-2018  season, but this time, the award isn’t going to a specific player, a coach or the team itself.

While the first thought that may have come to mind is an award naming Franklin the best mascot in the game, an accolade he frankly does deserve, this time, the Sixers are being honored for having the best Twitter account in the NBA, an honor the team rightfully deserves.

In‘s annual NBA Twitter Account rankings list, the 76ers came out on top for the first time in the awards four year history. Though this isn’t the first the Sixers have finished out the season on the podium, as they finished third in 2015 and second in 2017, this is the first time the Portland Trail Blazers didn’t capture Complex’s top spot, and Philly did.

And really, is there a better follow in the entire NBA than the 76ers?

In addition to having arguably the best social media user in all of professional sports in JoJo on their roster, the Sixers social media department has consistently brought the fire to their 1.54 million Twitter followers on a daily basis and helped maintain the team’s presence across the internet.

I mean just look at the team’s total roast of the Milwaukee Bucks over Malcolm Brogdon‘s selection as the 2017 Rookie of the Year, that’s social media at it’s highest level.

Next: Philadelphia 76ers 2017-2018 season superlatives

While this award obviously doesn’t mean anything in the grand scheme of things, as the Sacramento Kings have consistently finished near the top of the list in each of the last four seasons, and they are one of the worst teams in the league, but it does show that the Philadelphia 76ers are one of the freshest, most exciting organizations in the entire league, from the team on the court to their social media staff members.
