Saturday Night Live poked fun at the Cleveland Cavaliers’ utter reliance on the team’s star LeBron James in an unaired parody of a hype video for the 2018 NBA Playoffs.
In the May 5 sketch, SNL host Donald Glover and the “Other Cavaliers” pledge their loyalty to the legendary basketball player — no matter what menial task it entails.
“Whatever LeBron needs we’ll get it done. As long what he needs isn’t basketball,” James’ teammates boast in the promo clip, rattling off duties like picking up the star’s laundry and holding his many cell phones.
The two-minute sketch arrived just in time as James and the Cavs pulled off a victory against the Toronto Raptors Saturday. The clip was cut for time on SNL, but posted online. Watch it below.
