Shaqtin' a Fool: LeBron James Throws a Strike

Joel C. CordesNBA Associate EditorFebruary 28, 2014

Though he's currently playing forward for the Miami Heat while wearing what appears to be a catcher's mask, LeBron James can play any position in any sport he darn well pleases, thank you very much. He can also grace Shaqtin' a Fool with his presence on a whim.

And if he chooses to suddenly be a pitcher, rifling a fastball at the head of the referee, well, it's just expected that the ref would kindly duck and call a foul on the opponent for not standing in there too.

I'm just kidding—no foul was actually called, but look at how easily LeBron lovers and haters equally got their pitchforks ready?

It's King James' world, and we're just living in it right now, regardless of the sport. By the way, the Birmingham Barons are still around, LeBron, if you're interested. 

Elsewhere, behold the rare 10-man basketball comedy show, Manu Ginobili literally wearing the tread off his tires and Terrence Jones doing his best JaVale McGee impression. 

And don't miss the extended outtakes, either. You'll learn that anything Tyson Chandler can and can't do with his head, Shaquille O'Neal can do better. You'll also witness, according to Chuck, the first-ever basketball pass from Dennis Scott.

Get your NBA giggles on with Shaq, Ernie and the whole gang on TNT's Shaqtin' a Fool!
