King James stopped by The Tonight Show last night to promote Trainwreck, hilariously addressing the banana boat pic — “That’s Gabrielle Union, that’s Dwyane Wade, her husband, that’s Chris Paul, the great point guard from the Clippers, but that’s not me… I was back home in Akron, Ohio, when this happened.” — and reflecting on the Cavs loss to the Warriors in the NBA Finals before squaring off with Fallon himself in “Faceketball.” The seemingly simple premise — outscore your opposition by making shots into the opponent’s forehead-mounted mini hoop — proved to be way more difficult than either Fallon or James imagined, so there was only one way to settle the score: a dunk-off. Check out the ridiculous segment above and look for Trainwreck — directed by Judd Apatow and written by/starring Amy Schumer with an ensemble cast that includes Tilda Swinton, Bill Hader, Brie Larson, Colin Quinn, Barkhad Abdi, Mike Birbiglia, Jon Glaser, Vanessa Bayer, John Cena, Ezra Miller, LeBron James, Method Man, Jim Norton and Norman Lloyd — to hit theaters this Friday, July 17.
