LeBron James, Jimmy Fallon play “Waste Paper Basketball” (VIDEO)

Feb 28, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again now — you should be watching the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. He’s good.

He did a bit Thursday night where he said he found this old video he did with his friends, it turned out to be a music video set to the Kurtis Blow classic “Basketball.” The video is about the classic office game of making shots into the basket… when LeBron James shows up to put everyone else to shame. All done with a 1980s feel.

Classic.

      That thing was about three times as long as it needed to be for the laughs it was worth.

    The skit wasn’t that funny, but that’s on Fallon. I’m sure he had the best of intentions, but this really didn’t work. It’s Fallon’s job to make LBJ funny but he didn’t. He made Springsteen funny. Made Vedder funny. He makes Questlove funny. But other than the sheer goofiness of LBJ and Fallon doing a bit together, this one came up short.

    LBJ showed guts doing this. But Fallon let him down. Bet you that Fallon would agree.
