Links: Saturday Night LeBron

I’m breathlessly awaiting Sam’s post about his Mets successfully completing the most epic regular-season collapse in the last few decades — congrats for that, by the way.

In the meantime, anyone see “Saturday Night Live” with LeBron hosting this weekend? He came out obviously nervous — on the first skit he was staring holes through the cue cards. But he started loosening up with the High School Musical 3 sketch, and he really shined on the “Solid Gold” sketch. I’ve embedded it below, but you have to wait until about the 5 minute mark for the skit to start.

(And if I’m an opposing NBA team, I’d show that clip of LeBron prancing around on the scoreboard every time he’s playing in my arena.)

Kanye did a few songs, though his attempt at a two minute freestyle was painful.

Best skit of the night was this, by far.
