Jimmy Fallon has barely been at the desk of the Tonight Show on NBC and he is already killing it. He has had a horde of celebrities show up in his brief time at the helm and it seems like every night he is unveiling some kind of bit that becomes internet buzz that goes viral on social media.

This time he teamed up with Miami Heat superstar LeBron James for a music video about wastepaper basketball. You know, balled up pieces of paper you throw at trash bins.

It is basically a parody of the Kurtis Blow song “Basketball.” It even has the same cheerleaders at the beginning and then changes to the same chain link background and 1980s VHS look to it.
