South Park isn’t the only one to parody LeBron’s “What Should I Do” video:
I go back and forth on stuff like this. On one hand, this is really well made and pretty cathartic. What should I do? Don’t dick us over on national television, you douche! And then don’t kinda sorta apologize or ask for sympathy in a fucking shoe commercial. Way to speak from the heart, bud.
But on the other hand, we’re gonna have to get past this sooner or later, right? Yes, it’s only been a few months (which is forever in the internet era) but at some point we have to move on from getting dumped. Life goes on. The sports world sympathizes with Cleveland at the moment, but a few more videos like this (or a really ugly display on December 2nd) and we’re gonna lose any good will we’ve built up. LeBron didn’t bad mouth the city or the fans, he went to play for another franchise (in the most asshole-ish way possible, but still. No one died or anything).
(Also, I’m really really really really concerned about December 2nd. Please guys, don’t do anything embarrass our city. Booing: OK. Throwing stuff: Not OK).
I will say that I enjoy that they point out that LeBron quit in the Boston series. This really can’t be said enough, in my opinion. LeBron and the rest of the Cavs quit. This was the franchises’ best chance to win the title and they gave up before the final horn sounded. I know his teammates were the worst players in the history of the NBA and all, but LeBron James quit. That’s on his permanent record.
But ya, good video. Well done. I’m fairly certain I know the one girl (hi, Adey!), so that’s neat.
