With the NBA giving audiences a rare reason to watch ABC, late night host Jimmy Kimmel attempted to piggyback on the viewership of the NBA Finals by having NBA players Metta World Peace, Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, Rajon Rondo, Matt Barnes, Kobe Bryant and others read mean tweets about themselves on Sunday night. It was funny, but it could have been even better.
While all of the NBA players and personalities were good sports, but Kimmel knows that there is much more serious vitriol out there toward NBA players. For instance…
FUCK LEBRON , FUCK HIS HAIRLINE , FUCK HIS MOM LIKE DELONTE WEST DID , AND FUCK HIS HEADBAND FOR STAYING ON !!!

TIM FUCK MY WIFE DUNCAN

Let’s hear leBron or Duncan read those tweets live. Won’t happen. Maybe BC should get in touch with Kimmel to see if we can get an NBA player to read our NSFW tweets after the next?
