Ben Simmons, Draymond Green, Kobe And More Get Owned In ‘Mean Tweets’ – NBA Edition

YouTube/Jimmy Kimmel Live

Say what you want about the quality of late night talk shows but don’t you dare disrespect the Mean Tweets segment on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Nothing like seeing celebrities read the tweets of trolls who are giving a voice to the masses. Like Benedict Cumberpatch needs to know that he permanently looks like he’s having an allergic reaction to shellfish. It’s in J.J. Watt’s best interest to know that he looks like a fat Macklemore. Does Margot Robbie deserve a tongue punch in the “fart box”? A mean tweeter seems to think so.

The most recent installment of Mean Tweets features various figures in the NBA world, new and old–from Draymond Green to Rachel Nichols to Kobe Bryant. I rarely laugh out loud at things I see on the internet but the Stephen A. Smith and Scottie Pippen tweets had me giggling to myself in this coffee shop like a schizo.

Happy Friday, my friends.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
