Watch Colbert Beat Dwyane Wade in Wastepaper Basketball

Dwyane Wade, Please Challenge Stephen Colbert to a Rematch of Wastepaper Basketball

It turns out that after years of tossing a crumpled up piece of paper into the trash and shouting "Kobe!" we might have to start saying "Stephen!" after all. On Tuesday night, three-time NBA champion Dwyane Wade stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to discuss his new self-titled memoir Dwyane and engage in a friendly game of wastepaper basketball. Colbert, who has quite the résumé of wastepaper basketball championships under his belt, boasted past victories against Barack Obama, Allen Iverson, and Julius Erving, before taking on the former Miami Heat guard in a crumpled-paper shoot-out.

Things got pretty intense, and Wade even tried to dunk at the end! Hilariously enough, comments on the video are noting that years of being a writer has made Colbert garner "magical skills" in the wastepaper basketball department. He remains undefeated! Watch the video above (around the 6:50 mark), and check out the baller's intimate new photo memoir, Dwyane, available now.
