Jimmy Kimmel Gag Interviews on Spurs Media Day 


Guillermo Rodriguez of Jimmy Kimmel Live "interviewing" Chris Bosh

Jimmy Kimmel sideman Guillermo Rodriguez has had a blast over the past few years at the Finals Media Day, in which members of the media are invited to interview athletes during practice. Unlike most media outlets, Kimmel and Rodriguez take advantage of the opportunity of seeing a very short man interview very tall men, a funny premise on its own. Add the height differential to Rodriguez' carefree and outright goofy attitude when most everyone else is dead serious, and Jimmy Kimmel Live has found the equation for NBA humor.

For the 2014 media day, Rodriguez looks back on some of the goofier LeBron segments and interviews Chris "Birdman" Anderson, Shane Battier and Chris Bosh of the Heat. On the Spurs side, Rodriguez speaks to Patty Mills (up for the spectacle), a very serious Kawhi Leonard, a very busy Manu Ginobli and a very nice Tony Parker.
