In the season finale of Tosh.0, the sardonic host went somewhere we never thought he’d venture: Sports.

This priceless Web Redemption is devoted to a Michigan adolescent in his basement acting out Michael Jordan fantasies with a nerf basketball. But Daniel Tosh frames the segment as an ESPN spoof, titled 30 for 30.0 (for the channel’s acclaimed documentary series).

What makes it so great are all the commentators marveling at Ryan’s nerf skills. There’s Bill Simmons and Jalen Rose who observes that “Russell Westbrook flat-out stole Ryan’s look.”

The icing on the cake, though, is an authoratative appearance by the Sixers’ old Chocolate Thunder, Darryl Dawkins. Now that’s a man who knows a thing or two about jamming a ball in a basket.

It’s a hilarious spoof, but be forewarned: though most of the profanities get bleeped out, a couple of the milder ones make it through.
