10 Athletes Who Are Easily Offended
Matt Slocum/Associated Press

Getting picked on is never fun, and there are very few people on earth who are picked on more ruthlessly than professional athletes.

Between the jerks that control the media and the trolls that dominate the Twitterverse, athletes are scrutinized for their every step on and off the field and are called out for their flaws on a regular basis.

Some guys are a little better at handling this than others.

Those with the thickest skin are able to take even the cruelest tweets, the rudest accusations and the most embarrassing press conference questions and let them roll off their backs like nothing.

Then there are guys like Allen Iverson, Matt Harvey, Chris Bosh and Ryan Leaf who can be set off by the simplest little jab from a stranger on the Internet or the smallest little question from an idiot with a microphone.

These, of course, are the men who are all the more fun to poke and prod. The men who provide us with glorious made-for-TV reactions. The men who inspire the trolls to keep trolling.

There's an old adage that says, "Pick on someone your own size."

I refute that.

Rather, I say just pick on the 10 guys included on this list. You're sure to get a reaction that will make it all worth it.
