Social media has given us a more revealing look into the personal lives of our favorite athletes and celebrities. The one-liners on Twitter and the selfies on Facebook give us an exclusive glimpse inside the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Remember when Green Bay Packers guard TJ Lang got pissed at the refs and tweeted, “F*ck it NFL” for the world to see? We felt your pain, TJ. In the past year, the launch of Vine has given us yet another way to get a little closer to the bold-faced names that we love (and love to hate) through the introduction of short (six-second) looping video that can be posted through Twitter.
Now that we’ve watched, oh, hundreds of these small-screen gems, we think that athletes might have missed their calling as filmmakers. So do our partners at Bleacher Report; they’ve shared 15 of the most entertaining Vine videos created by athletes. From Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors “working on his game” to Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder singing along to Taylor Swift, these athletes crack up fans with their clever and sometimes-bizarre senses of humor.
