Fresh off his co-hosting duties at the ESPY Awards, LeBron James has been asked to host the season premier of Saturday Night Live in September. Rejected actors everywhere are groaning into their pillows.
In his comic debut last week, James, not especially known for his singing talents, proved detractors right. He was a horrible singer, belting out slightly-changed lyrics to Bobby Brown’s classic hit “My Prerogative” (called “My LeBrongative”). “LeBron's singing debut was, um, interesting,” NASCAR driver Danica Patrick said of the performance. “He might want to keep playing basketball. Just a thought.”
But LeBron was, at times, very funny – a sentiment that depresses many of us. A basketball superstar who also has a personality?! That’s, like, so incredibly unfair.
