Watch NBA Players Read Mean Tweets

In honour of the NBA playoffs, late night host Jimmy Kimmel made a topical modification to his popular recurring segment “Celebrities read mean tweets” to focus on NBA personalities as opposed to gorgeous women named Jessica. In keeping with the grand zinger tradition of it’s funny cos it’s true, the best tweets are the ones that are the most keenly observed (i.e. the Rondo/Franklin comparison is a eye-widening doppelganger breakthrough).

Other NBA personalities in the lineup: Kobe, Ron Artest, Bill Simmons, Bob Costa, Blake Griffin, Shaq and Deandre Jordan. Sweet jesus he’s tall.
