Late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel graced viewers of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Wednesday night with the latest installment of his Mean Tweets series, just in time for Cavaliers-Warriors III. Basketball’s current stars and former legends headlined the segment to read the harshest insults the Twitter-verse has to offer.
Knicks legend and MSG Network commentator Walt “Clyde” Frazier was among those taking part in the social media bashing.
“Tell Walt Frazier to sit his old pork chop sideburns a– down,” the former floor general read. He offered no response, just a half-hearted smile.
Four-time NBA champion Shaquille O’Neal was featured reading a tweet about his IQ.
“I don’t think Shaq is dumb, but he sure sounds like it.”
Utah Jazz legend Karl Malone concluded the segment with a mic drop: “Karl Malone ain’t doing this sh–,” the NBA’s all-time leader in postseason losses said as he walked off the set.
Classic. Well, Karl Malone ain’t got no rings either.
The fifth edition of Kimmel’s NBA Mean Tweets also featured Zach LaVine, DeAndre Jordan, Mike Conley, Paul George, Karl-Anthony Towns, Devin Booker, Jay Williams, Caron Butler, Doc Rivers, Michelle Beadle, Joel Embid, James Harden and Magic Johnson.
