These NBA Stars Had Slam-Dunk Comebacks For Jimmy Kimmel's Mean Tweets

Don't come for Charles Barkley.

In honor of the NBA Finals, Jimmy Kimmel debuted a new installment of his famous Mean Tweets segment on Thursday, featuring basketball stars of past and present. It's not the first time Kimmel has recruited the biggest names in the NBA to recite insults about themselves, and we doubt it will be his last.

Current players such as Draymond Green, Andre Drummond, and Kevin Love join retired pros such as Scottie Pippen, Charles Barkley, and Kobe Bryant — not to mention commentators Rachel Nichols and Stephen A. Smith — to read some of the meanest things the internet has to say about them.


Some of those featured can only laugh and shrug at their tweets. (Jalen Rose, on the other hand, gives a long, puzzled stare into the camera when he reads someone's claim that he has "Lego hair.") But others can't help but offer a quick comeback — or an impromptu musical performance.

Check out some of our favorite responses below:

Draymond Green's confident response to his tweet? "That's a damn good-looking jump shot."

Charles Barkley challenged his tweet's accuracy by arguing, "That's not true, 'cause I would eat 'em."

Kobe Bryant didn't cry to Seal's "Kiss from a Rose," but he did sing some of it.
