Mean Tweets

NBA stars read mean tweets about themselves for Jimmy Kimmel

The NBA Finals rematch between the Cleveland Cavs and Golden State Warriors starts on Thursday night, and to celebrate the occasion, Jimmy Kimmel had NBA stars read mean tweets about themselves. Warriors star Steph Curry read one — and thought it was pretty funny (it was) — but LeBron James was a no-show this round. The tweets are hit or miss (Blake Griffin's is a big hit), but the real fun is watching how the stars respond. Reggie Miller played along, Shaq turned his mean tweet into a yo' mamma joke, and it looks like Magic Johnson took his insult as a compliment. Watch the self deprecation below. Peter Weber
