A collection of tweets celebrating Vooch’s first All-Star selection

NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder at Orlando Magic Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Typically when we do these “Twitter reacts...” collections, it is for something that causes a debate or mixed reaction.

Like when Frank Vogel was fired, or when Elfrid Payton returned to Orlando to play the Magic, or when Steve Clifford was hired, or when Aaron Gordon was re-signed, or when the Magic got the sixth pick in the NBA Draft, or Mo Bamba was drafted.

This time around, it’s all positive (though there are a few bitter Nets, Jazz and Sixers fans).

Nikola Vucevic was named an NBA All-Star for the first time in his eight-year career, giving Orlando its first All-Star since Dwight Howard (the very guy Vooch was acquired for).

It’s a well-deserved honor for a player who, despite seven difficult years in Orlando, has been a hard worker, model teammate and class act.

To honor Vucevic, we have gathered some of the best congratulatory tweets we came across on Twitter (and we also threw in a few not so congratulatory tweets just to give a sampling of what’s out there).

Congrats, Vooch!
