Is it possible that a British late night TV host is actually a great basketball player? While it seems unlikely, James Corden insisted that he beat Ice Cube in a game of one-on-one before they taped the show, but Cube wasn’t having it. To settle the dispute, they went to the tape of the game to see how things played out.

While Corden’s ball-handling skills could certainly use some work, he did alright in the game. In particular, his jump shot was hitting from everywhere on the court, and he even hit a few trick shots, like a no-look basket and a Kareem-esque Sky Hook. Looking at the score, it’s obvious that Corden was dominant in this game.


Of course, the camera cut away whenever Corden took a shot, and then the tape shows the ball going through the hoop, but that isn’t at all suspicious. Looking at his form, who could doubt that Corden has a deadly jumper? By the same token, all of Cube’s shots bounced out after the camera cutaway. Corden even got himself a dunk. (The dunker’s jersey said Corden, so it had to be him.)

Better luck next time, Cube.
