The NBA held its first annual social media awards last week to commend the best tweeters, with the Knicks’ Jeremy Lin and Landry Fields copping honors. Now the league is looking into the dark side of player Twitter interaction with fans.

A source told The Post the NBA plans to look into the authenticity of a profane direct message allegedly sent by Amar’e Stoudemire to a fan over the weekend. Stoudemire allegedly called the fan an anti-gay slur in the direct message, which was forwarded to Deadspin.com via photo.
