Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel have really taken late night TV to a new level thanks to recurring sketches and videos combined with the fact that David Letterman hasn’t been funny since 1991.

During a special “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” last night, the recurring segment known as “Mean Tweets” – when usually movie stars and entertainers read negative tweets about themselves – went NBA-style to coincide with Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

While most players just read the tweets and then looked into the camera, there are several instances of players dishing out hysterical comebacks, flipping off the camera and even acknowledging that what was said about them was actually true.

Our vote for favorite clip goes to DeMarcus Cousins reading the tweet that refers to him as an emotional lesbian, with Dikembe Mutombo acknowledging it’s funny that he sounds like Cookie Monster coming in a close second.
