LeBron James and Ellen DeGeneres played 'Roomba Basketball' and got drunk off vodka shots

It seems as though Ellen DeGeneres was inspired by the folks who brought you Roomba Pong to challenge LeBron James to a drinking game. Here’s the setup: DeGeneres and LeBron both play basketball using paper balls and two wastebaskets sitting on Roombas. Every time Ellen makes a shot, LeBron has to drink a shot of vodka; every time LeBron misses a shot, Ellen has to do the same. They were both lenient on the rules — well, mostly LeBron, who felt bad that he kept making Ellen drink. The next time DeGeneres wants an NBA star on the show to play “Roomba Basketball,” it should definitely be Matthew Dellavedova.
