Lebron James is an island out there all by his lonesome leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to victory. And an unairedÂ Saturday Night Live skit made light of the possibly that Jamesâ teammates donât contribute that much help when it comes to playing for the championship.
Thatâs a hurtful joke theyâll have to laugh off after Donald Glover and SNLâs top comedians trolled the team in âThe Other Cavaliersâ skit and the struggle the teamâs endured this playoff season,Â reports theÂ Daily News.
Even though the skit was cut and didnât air, it lives online. And weâre pretty sure feelings will be hurt after watching this hilarious clip teasing the Cavs players.
Glover along with Kenan Thompson, Pete Davidson and Kyle Mooney, introduce themselves as âThe Other Cavaliers,â who are basically Jamesâ teammates who donât offer much to the game. But how do they help? They joked:
Â âEvery time LeBron makes a free throw, Iâm right there with that hi-five like âThere you go, LeBron!’â
âI hold LeBronâs third and fourth cell phone.â
âI run the pick and roll, thatâs where I pick up LeBronâs laundry and roll it on over to his house.â
The fictional teammates even include a Roomba vacuum cleaner as the starting point guard. A dog named Pancake in the starting center and even a woman who incessantly smokes serves on the team.
Is the team that bad that theyâre saying a chain-smoker could do better? Funny stuff.
The fictitious teammates say:
âWhatever LeBron needs, weâll get it done â as long as what he needs isnât basketball.â
âI average zero points, zero assists, six personal fouls,â another fake teammate said.
âWe run an offense called hot potato. LeBron throws us the ball and we throw it right back â hot potato.â
We wonder if James will call up his teammates to apologize on behalf of SNL. Or will they just step their game up?
