This week’s tweet of the week is from a Dawg, as in an actual dog/Dawg who happens to be the dog of a Dawg. We don’t know how he managed to use a smart phone or Twitter, but after the Memphis Grizzlies advanced to the Western Conference Finals, Quincy Pondexter’s Husky pup “Buckets” posted this tweet. Q-Pon, now a lock-down perimeter defender and sharpshooting guard for the Grizzlies was a do-it-all star for the Dawgs, averaging 19.1 points and 7.4 boards per game his senior season while leading UW to the Sweet Sixteen.
