Steve Carell and Paul Rudd Spoof LeBron James's Decision

LeBron James's ESPN special, The Decision, might have resulted in one of the biggest moments in Miami sports history. But let's not kid ourselves -- the whole thing was ridiculous. I mean, Jim Gray's questions such as "One hand or two?" and "Are you still a nail-biter?" were some of the most ridiculous moments in journalism since Barbara Walters asked someone: "If you were a tree, what kind of tree would you be?" It's ripe for parody, and on last night's ESPY Awards, Steve Carell and Paul Rudd knocked it out of the park.




In case you're wondering, both Dwyane Wade and LeBron James (previous winners) lost Best NBA player to Kobe Bryant, and FIU's Garrett Wittels lost Best Male College Athlete to Kentucky's John Wall. At least Dolphins part-owner Serena Williams took home honors for best female tennis player.
