On July 11th, LeBron James announced that he would be resigning with the Cleveland Cavaliers through a thoughtful and poised essay in Sports Illustrated. Through that essay, the world saw a new side to LeBron James: mature, sophisticated, insightful. LeBron's essay was almost as big of news as his move back to Cleveland itself.

And now, that essay has been brought to life via Morgan Freeman impersonation.

While appearing on ESPN's Mike & Mike program, famed celebrity impersonator Frank Caliendo read LeBron's SI essay in a spot-on Morgan Freeman voice. The result, of course, is hilarious. Maybe this will inspire James to co-star alongside Freeman if they ever make a sequel to "The Shawshank Redemption."
