NBA players open themselves up to abuse every time they step onto the hardwood for their respective franchises.
Fortunately for today's modern pros though, the majority of the abuse directed at them comes in the form of social media during the game itself meaning they often mis out on the comments directed at them.
Jimmy Kimmel Live however obviously felt that the likes of Chris Paul, Dwight Howard, Steph Curry, and Paul George were missing out, and should have the opportunity to see just what fans across the country think of them.
And that is exactly what they got in the show's Mean Tweets segment.
The video, which can be seen at the bottom of the article, sees a range of the top players currently playing in the league reacting in great style to various obscene, offensive, and downright rude tweets.
New York Knicks' Amare Stoudemire kicks things off as he reads out a tweet claiming he shares a resemblance to a homeless person in a perfect dead pan tone.
And at various points in the two minute long clip, we see Steph Curry take it to heart when a tweet criticises his "pubey" facial hair and less-than-perfect teeth, whilst Sacramento Kings' Demarcus Cousins can't help but laugh after one member of the public felt like letting him know that he looks like "a emotional lesbian".
Nate Robinson meanwhile actually struggles to find fault with his message, accepting there may be a grain of truth in the following Tweet:
"Nate Robinson can't do a ***** pick & roll properly. He can't see over anybody."
The best reaction though has to be that of Indiana Pacers all-star Paul George.
Confronted with a tweet in which someone claims they would "kill my parents if they named me Paul George" the Pacers man had a simple retort.
Holding up his middle finger to the camera.
You can't really blame him, can you?
We aren't even sure serial-troller Kevin Garnett would stoop so low to get an advantage over George during a game.
Actually on second thought...
