“ESPN’s Arash Markazi managed to attach himself to LeBron James and his crew for a night in Las Vegas and wrote of a 25-year-old living life like some sort of Caligula of the Cuyahoga.” Then the story disappeared. Then The Jones recreated a part of LeBron’s night (See: Act I). Then they did another one.

  1. It’s a good thing this is funny as hell or else I might be mad that this post pushed down the post I just made. Skeets on sax actually made me cackle like an old man.

  2. Good performances. What song is that, again?

  3. Dying. Dying. Someone get these guys a show…

    Nice shirt Skeets.

  4. Scott and Holly sandwiched by goof-ball videos. This is a look of what’s to come.

  5. Sick film, you guys should do this all the time. Who directed it? Where can I add my two cents to this. . . . Good stuff, keep up the good work.

  6. Where’s Tassos to pour out the Ouzo?

  7. It sounds like this shitty song but I can’t be sure.


  8. Sorry but I just didn’t find this funny.

  9. @Fieldsy17: Apology accepted.

  10. The Jones: Greatest sports blog ever. Go Canada.

  11. I liked it. Shows great creativity.

  12. I liked it. Shows great creativity.


  13. So LeBron’s a coldplay fan? Never would have guessed…

  14. I never realized how much Lebron looks like a Sean Astin/Seth Rogen hybrid in profile.

    Also, cute hair twirl :)

  15. I’m pretty sure that saxophonist was Chris Paul.

  16. matt’s acting > skeets’ acting

  17. matt killed it.

    matt — keep acting like lebron for the rest of your life (if you’re not already)

  18. Did not realize it was Coldplay “Viva la Vida.” Who is the chick? Holly?

  19. should change blog name to The Basketball James

  20. So many whitey faces…

  21. Well what else do you expect them to do in the offseason? I’d much rather watch Canadians make fun of LeBron than hear Skip Bayless talk about the Wizards signing Josh Howard.

  22. Being serious when I say that the acting I just witnessed in this piece of yours blows away anything I remember Pacino or De Niro ever do

  23. I’m sure that saxophonist was Chris Paul

  24. I do love the manner in which you have framed this particular situation plus it really does offer me personally some fodder for consideration. However, coming from what I have witnessed, I only hope when the actual reviews stack on that men and women continue to be on point and in no way start on a tirade of the news du jour. All the same, thank you for this superb point and although I do not really agree with this in totality, I value your perspective.


  25. What i don’t realize is in reality how you are not actually a lot more neatly-liked than you may be now. You’re so intelligent. You realize therefore considerably with regards to this matter, produced me in my opinion believe it from a lot of numerous angles. Its like men and women aren’t fascinated unless it is one thing to accomplish with Girl gaga! Your personal stuffs outstanding. All the time maintain it up!

  26. pleasant and also interested

  27. Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam remarks? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any help is very much appreciated.

  28. Everything posted was very logical. But, what about this? what if you added a little content? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you added something to possibly get people’s attention? I mean this blog name is a little plain. You might look at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create news headlines to grab viewers interested. You might add a related video or a picture or two to get people excited about what you’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it would bring your website a little bit more interesting.

  29. I seldom leave a response, however I read through a few comments on this page this blog name. I do have a couple of questions for you if you don’t mind. Is it only me or does it look as if like a few of these comments look like they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting at additional online sites, I would like to follow you. Could you make a list of every one of all your social community sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  30. Everything published was actually very logical. But, what about this? suppose you added a little information? I ain’t saying your information is not good., but what if you added something to possibly grab a person’s attention? I mean this blog name is a little plain. You should peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they write post titles to grab people to click. You might try adding a video or a picture or two to grab people interested about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it could bring your blog a little bit more interesting.

  31. We would like to thank you just as before for the stunning ideas you gave Jeremy when preparing her post-graduate research as well as, most importantly, for providing each of the ideas in one blog post. Provided we had been aware of your web site a year ago, we might have been rescued from the nonessential measures we were taking. Thank you very much. Palm Beach Gardens

  32. What are you stating, man? I know everyones got their own viewpoint, but really? Listen, your blog is cool. I like the effort you put into it, specially with the vids and the pics. But, come on. Theres gotta be a better way to say this, a way that doesnt make it seem like everybody here is stupid!

  33. I tried looking at your site with my blackberry and the layout doesnt seem to be right. Might wanna check it out on WAP as well as it seems most smartphone layouts are not working with your site.
