5. Deron Williams
He is a point guard with the Brooklyn nets and his life seems to be surrounded more by his family members than by anything else. He gives you updates about his life and whatever is happening with the Olympics as well. It is a must to follow William’s twitter account if you are a fan of his. He, however, would not give you much know how of what is been happening at the Olympics. It is a good idea to follow his account only if you do not mind some updates of his life as well as a few updates of Olympics coming in randomly.

6. Carmelo Anthony
Carmelo Anthony is a part of the New York Knicks team, as of now, and is formerly a member of the Denver Nuggets. Not a bad performer on and off the court, Anthony is one of the more popular players in the NBA. He is, however, a very modest player and a very modest tweeter as well. His tweets are very casual and tell you about what’s up with him and his life subsequently telling you about what’s up with team USA in the Olympics. Thus, his is also one of the best accounts to follow in the Olympics 2012.
