Paul George, Bill Simmons Star in 'Mean Tweets' with Jimmy Kimmel

Dan CarsonTrending Lead WriterJanuary 8, 2017

Jimmy Kimmel’s latest NBA installment of "Mean Tweets" aired Sunday night, and, as usual, no prisoners were taken.

Paul George, Bill Simmons and Chris Paul were among the players and media personalities who kindly took the time to read some of the meanest messages they've ever received over social media.

Amar'e Stoudemire kicked things off with a tweet from one kind user who believes he looks like someone who sleeps on a park bench.

"Can’t lie, Amar'e Stoudemire looks homeless," the New York Knicks center read. 

Paul George corked off a middle finger in response to a Twitter user who claimed he would "kill [his] parents" if he had such an "ugly a-- name."

Of all the messages, the two directed at Chris Paul and Bill Simmons stand above the rest in terms of pure "what in the hell?"

Paul’s tweet is a firm statement about how breakfast cereal and a part of the human anatomy answer any questions regarding the point guard's legacy.

"Chris Paul has Rice Krispy [expletive], he not legend," Paul read.

Simmons' tweet, in a similar twist, involved "Swarovski gems" and another unfortunate expletive. At least he noticed your blue eyes, Bill. 

All in all, it's another solid segment from Kimmel, whose first NBA edition of "Mean Tweets" included Andre Iguodala and gazelle parts.

Maybe Kimmel will get LeBron James to come on and read tweets from the "Cramp Game" next time. They could dedicate an entire show to the endeavor and follow it up with a Mario Chalmers variety hour. 

Remember, kids: If you can’t say anything nice to athletes on Twitter, don’t say anything at all. Unless it’s hilarious and there’s a chance it will get on Kimmel.


On the Twitters.
