Stephen Colbert Thanks LeBron James for Being So Classy and Modest (VIDEO)

NBA star Lebron James came in for some withering sarcasm on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM on COM.)
Talking about how LeBron and "America's Sweetheart Team," the Miami Heat, had fallen to the Dallas Mavericks in game 6 of the NBA Finals, Stephen Colbert mocked the grandiose way in which LeBron opened the season and the petulant way he ended it.
Casting his eye over what he referred to as "the humble beginnings" of the season, when the ending of LeBron's free agent saga was the subject of a live one-hour TV "event" on ESPN, Colbert showed footage of LeBron and his teammates Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade rising heroically onto a stage via forklift amid a ton of smoke and spotlights.
Then Colbert showed us LeBron in defeat, saying "of course, [he] handled it with class," before running a clip of LeBron speaking at the post-Finals press conference, in which he was distinctly less than gracious about his critics.
