LeBron James hosts SNL?

There's just no justice to be had sometimes. Basketball Star LeBron James is hosting Saturday Night Live tonight. What's up with that? He lost. He didn't win the NBA World Championship. So why is he hosting SNL?

Please don't misunderstand. I like LeBron James. I like him because he's a very talented athlete who seems to have a good sense of humor. He doesn't go around carrying guns in bars like some thugs in the NBA. Hasn't been arrested for whatever the NBA crime of the week is. I like him because he doesn't go around blaming others for LOSING THE NBA FINALS. And, because he's willing to be responsible for his team's efforts when others in the NBA (Kobe) whine about refs, team mates, coaches, etc.

There are other players I like who would be great SNL hosts. I think Tony Parker the point guard for the San Antonio Spurs...The NBA World Champions...would do well. Tony Parker who, in addition to being the winner of the NBA Finals, was named one of People Magazine's 50 most beautiful people, also has his own rap album (in French), and is married to Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria. Doesn't it seem that Parker should be the host instead of James?

Of course it's probably because the networks hate the San Antonio Spurs. They just get the job done in a business-like manner without a lot of flash or rape trials (Kobe?). They won their 4th NBA Championship in 8 years and got record low TV ratings in the process. But, instead of celebrating the Spurs victory and having Tony Parker as SNL host they choose LeBron. No Justice.
