LeBron James's Letter Read Aloud in Morgan Freeman's Rapturous Voice

ESPN hosts of "Mike & Mike" couldn't stifle their bursts of laughter when LeBron James's letter from Sports Illustrated was read aloud in a spot-on impression of Morgan Freeman's "Shawshank Redemption" voice.

Frank Caliendo, a comedian and impressionist, read James' letter about his decision to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers aloud on Thursday's broadcast of "Mike & Mike," in a low, breathy, and slow voice that was instantly recognizable as a parody of Freeman's.

Both hosts, Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic, had their hands over their eyes and mouths to soften their laughter — and snorting — over the comedian's on-point performance.
