The NBA Finals are upon us and that means another edition of “Mean Tweets”!
Jimmy Kimmel Live! recruited a dozen of today’s biggest basketball stars and former NBA legends to read mean tweets people have written about them on social media on Thursday, to hilarious results.
Golden State Warriors star point guard Stephen Curry eturned for the latest installment, and this time his youthful look was the target of a Twitter user’s hate.
“Have you ever been downloading something online and halfway through it just froze and couldn’t go anywhere? Think Steph Curry’s puberty,” the 28-year-old athlete read aloud, before laughing at the tweet. “That’s good.”
“One day Klay Thompson is gonna leave the house without remembering to attach his goatee that he bought from Party City and it’s going to be awkward,” Curry’s teammate read about himself, totally stone-faced.
Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin’s mean tweet elicited laughter when he read his aloud: “Does anyone know what Blake Griffin is? Did Morgan Freeman and Carrot Top impregnate an Amazon or what happened….”
Apparently, Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook doesn’t know his Star Wars. “Russell Westbrook look like Jar Jar Binks,” the NBA pro read, slightly confused. “I’ll take your word for it. I don’t know who he is … but sure.”
