FRANCE’S PARKER DOESN’T SURRENDER DURING INTERVIEW: Tuesday night’s edition of Jay Leno’s “Tonight Show” on NBC featured a piece from comedian Mitch Fatel at the NBA All-Star game in Las Vegas.
Fatel interviewed several NBA all-stars. The highlights, of course, were Fatel’s questions …
To Vince Carter of the New Jersey Nets: “I have to live in New Jersey because I don’t make a lot of money. What’s your excuse?”
Carter: “I have to also.”
Fatel to Dikembe Mutombo: “Is it true that Madonna tried to adopt you?”
Fatel to LeBron James: “What the hell is a Cavalier?”
James: “It’s a guy that carries around a sword that might stab you.”
Fatel to Kobe Bryant: “What would you say is worse: fouling out or having to watch Shaq’s movie ‘Kazaam’ again?”
Bryant: “Probably watching the ‘Kazaam’ movie, I’d say.”
The piece de la resistance came when Fatel asked Tony Parker, “Since you’re French, do you ever just want to surrender in the middle of a game?”
Parker was left speechless, then proceeded to raise an eyebrow and give Fatel a dirty look. Priceless.
