Lebron James Plays on PokerStars

We have no idea who Drake is, but apparently he’s got enough clout to get Kayne West, Lil’ Wayne, and Eminem to appear/rap in his “Forever” video.

Also in it is Lebron James, who begins the video by playing a hand on PokerStars. Now, this ended up pissing us off a little, as we then watched the rest of the video to figure out why Lebron James started off said video playing on PokerStars. Ad buy? Had nothing to do with anything else, although it was clear Drake has some sort of man-crush on LBJ, as there is no other explanation for all of the other shots of King James playing basketball interspersed throughout. Wtf. Maybe we don’t get rap anymore. Perhaps Jeff Madsen could explain it to us.

    This song is part of the soundtrack for “More Than A Game,” a movie about the life of Lebron James and his four friends. Five talented young basketball players from Akron, Ohio star in this remarkable true-life coming of age story about uncommon friendship in the face of all too common adversities.

    The second single on the sound track is titled “Forever” and includes hip-hop artists Drake, Lil Wayne, Kanye West and Eminem. Thats why Lebron James is featured in the music video.

    Everyone loves poker and PokerStars (seriously, all of these guys like to gamble and play poker). Thats why its in the video.

    Funny. I’ve long contended that there are two types of people in this country — those who get Eminem, and those who don’t. Now I am not so sure.

    Among other like comparison, we’ve contended that there are two types of people in the world…those who like Family Guy and those who like South Park.

    We’re in the South Park camp. F’ Family Guy.

    amen. south park’s carrying the torch where the simpsons left off. although, nothing will ever be funnier than the simpsons at its peek (obvious statement of the week). matt stone and trey parker are clever. seth macfarlane is nothing but seventies pop culture references and hackneyed shock value jokes. second the f’ family guy.
