LeBron James and his ghostwriter did a marvelous job on the superstar's Sports Illustrated essay announcing 'The Decision 2"--LeBron's move back to Cleveland. The LeBron return is the best sports narrative in a long while, perfectly orchestrated too. (Coming home is so integral to the great mythology of sports that in baseball it's the whole idea!) But for such a multimedia world, LeBron chose a very old school medium--print!--to wax eloquent about going back to his old digs. No music, no TV lights, not even a voice. But media abhors a vaccuum and the comedian Frank Caliendo helpfully filled in this oversight by reading LeBron's entire essay aloud--using the voice of Morgan Freeman!
Freeman, of course, narrates all Hollywood films--or wait, it only seems that way. And he specializes in going home flicks too, from The Shawshank Redemption to March of the Penguins. It's a perfect match of talent and material--all the way around. Caliendo really knocks it out of the park. And when you do that? Home again you go.
