The Seattle Seahawks, thanks to their mean defense, became the new National Football League (NFL) champions on Sunday after inflicting a 43-8 defeat on the Denver Broncos. After that, and as expected, the chatty celebrities on Twitter – who have nothing to do with the game of Football – came online to express their opinion on the game.
First up was the NBA’s leading contender for the MVP Award, Kevin Durant

His arch-nemesis LeBron James matched KD’s tweet, saying:
The legendary Magic Johnson added:
