There is a ton of LeBron "pretty funny ... for an athlete" James Saturday Night Live material on YouTube including his short and partially taped (you get the feeling the producers weren't inspired by this part of the show -- by my count he tells a grand total of two live jokes) monologue, a Read to Achieve commercial shoot gone bad ("we should have gotten Dwyane Wade, at least he has a ring"), High School Musical 3 (again, precious little asked of LeBron), and Kanye West was funny in a skit with a LeBron cameo. But the thing opponents will be reminding James about when he's on the free throw line this season is the "Solid Gold" spoof (at about the five-minute mark of that clip) when he was in skin-tight shiny gold and a dazzling wig as the dancer "Alexander," saying stuff like "I'm six-foot-eight, 245 pounds, and I like eating roasted whole turkeys."
A basketball game from "The Office."
The basketball scene from "The Cable Guy."
Sarunas Jasikevicius arriving at his new team, Panathinaikos, in Athens. People this side of the Atlantic might be lukewarm on the player Don Nelson calls "Jazzy Cabbages," but man oh man do they have have the fever in Greece.
The ten best plays of the 1992 Dream Team. A lot of Clyde Drexler and Michael Jordan. Scottie Pippen makes a move on the break that would get him benched by a lot of eighth-grade coaches. The main thing to celebrate here? They don't use this music in highlight packages any more.
