6 Comments

The final episode of the Colbert Report aired yesterday, and it included the above celebrity-filled song.

Among those in studio to celebrate Stephen Colbert were Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Randy Newman, Jon Nelson, Willie Nelson, Bryan Cranston, Tom Brokaw, Katie Couric, George Lucas, Big Bird, Keith Olbermann, James Franco, Gloria Steinem, Jeff Daniels, Charlie Rose, Barry Manilow, Alan Alda, , Bill de Blasio, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Cyndi Lauper, Ken Burns, Toby Keith and Henry Kissinger.

And Mark Cuban.

You can see the Mavericks owner in the back from 5:11-5:20 in the video.

Why didn’t he finagle his way to the front? Because he no longer cares about getting attention? Maybe because he was busy.

Olbermann:

Cuban had his priorities in line. Trading for Rajon Rondo makes the Mavericks a stronger championship contender.

To Cuban’s credit, this didn’t become a repeat of 2012, when he prioritized filming Shark Tank over meeting with free agent Deron Williams.
