Brandon Jennings is the superstar acquisition of the Knicks' 2016 social media free agency class

Five new players, five new Twitter accounts (and Instagram, too!)

Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports

The Knicks have added five new players in the past few deals through the magic of free agency. But who are these people, really? There's only one way to find out, and that is through the magic of social media. Let's start with the best, shall we?

Brandon Jennings (Twitter: @brandonjennings, Instagram: @_bj7nn)

Jennings is the early front-runner for Knicks social media MVP.

The dude is already a titan of Twitter. He managed to both live-tweet the first few days of free agency and the new Tarzan film:

And who could ever forget his legendary beef with J.R. Smith over his brother, Chris:

Joakim Noah (Twitter: @JoakimNoah, Instagram: @stickity13)

Noah is fond of two things: taking photos of himself without a shirt, and taking photos of himself next to interesting street art:

Lee stopped Tweeting last December, but he's still active on Instagram. I particularly like whoever photoshopped his head onto Dwyane Wade's body:

Mindaugas Kuzminskas (@MKuzminskas)

Like Kristaps Porzingis, Kuzminskas tweets in his native language, Spanish and English.

Also, where can I get a copy of this Arvydas Sabonis biography?

Willy Hernangomez (Twitter: @willyhg94, Instagram: @willyhernangomez)

Hernangomez possesses that Pau Gasolian aura of "I'm always smiling because I'm from Spain and life is terrific.

Frio frio frio! ❄️❄️❄️ #SeleccionEspañola #14

He's also willing to take photos with random fans, no matter how geeky.
