Steve Carell and Chili’s Add Comedy to the Lebron James and Cavaliers Drama

If you have not been living under a rock you know that Lebron James made it known that he was leave the Cleveland Cavaliers, the NBA team he had played for since coming out of high school, for the Miami Heat during a live television broadcast on ESPN.  To say that the owners and fans were not angry would be like saying Lost was the worst television show ever(I’m a huge Lost fan and I know that it is was one of the best shows ever and it needs to have a movie-but I digress. )  After the announcement Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert wrote angry open letter to Cleveland fans that blasted Lebron and the way he made his decision.

In a spoof during the ESPY Awards Steve Carell parodied the Lebron James’s announcement by declaring he was taking his appetite to Outback Steakhouse.  He was asked to explain what he would say to the management and staff of Chili’s.   Chili’s then issued a satirical letter to Steve Carell that mimicked the letter Dan Gilbert wrote to James.   It really softened a very emotionally tense situation.  Carell was great and showed why so many fans love watching him on The Office.

Tonight’s installment of the Scranton-set NBC comedy, “The Deposition,” was the last episode filmed before the show shut down production due to the Writers’ Guild of America strike.
