Jimmy Kimmel is maybe low-key the best late night talk show host. Fallon is a ass kissing teacher’s pet, Colbert is just straight vanilla, and Conan is essentially an alien. Kimmel on the other hand is outright funny, rude, and he thinks outside the box. These factors led to the creation of his uber-viral segment “Mean Tweets”, where celebrities and athletes read supposedly real mean tweets about themselves (even though everyone knows the tweets are written by Kimmel’s writing staff).
Since Kimmel and the NBA finals are both on ABC, it was only natural that they crossbreed the two. What results is one of the best Mean Tweet segments they’ve ever done. I mean, come on, that Blake Griffin joke? Legendary.
