Funniest Part of LeBron SNL: Kanye Has the Best Pumpkin

Posted By on Mon, Oct 1, 2007 at 4:54 PM

LeBron's guest-host gig on this weekend's Saturday Night Live stunk up the place, through no fault of his own. SNL's inept writers left James holding the ball. They even managed to botch a LeBrons bit -- you know, the James family depicted in the Nike ads. Trust us on this. The only funny skit had nothing to do with the Chosen One. Late in the show, musical guest Kanye West lampooned himself in a series of clips the presented the salty producer-emcee crashing awards shows including the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice show, the Nobel Prize, and a state fair best pumpkin contest. Check it out above before the tightasses at NBC yank the video down from YouTube. -- D.X. Ferris
