A+ Impression Of Denzel Washington Giving LeBron James A Motivational Speech Before Game 3
  • Jake O'Donnell

If this disappointingly one-sided series ends two games from now — I’m not saying they will, I’m just saying — this impression of Denzel Washington giving a pep talk to LeBron James will have been the best part of the 2017 Finals.

“I’ve been in 36 different movies, I’ve played 36 different characters and they all sound the goddamn same! You drop your shoulder and go in there and not be afraid.”
