The NBA Finals are upon us, and we must once again commence the annual reading of the Mean Tweets.

For the fourth year running, Jimmy Kimmel got NBA players past and present to dive deep into Twitter—though not too deep, since this is still broadcast television—and read all of the insults that fans have been sending them.

It’s just as silly as the previous videos, and many of the players are good sports about it. From questioning where Klay Thompson got his beard to comparing Russell Westbrook to Jar Jar Binks and mentioning Steph Curry’s constant state of puberty, the tweets are even meaner than ever.

We might disagree on which team we want to win the NBA Finals, but in the game of Mean Tweets, we all win.
