Usher and Jimmy Kimmel sing a song for the unsung heroes of basketball, the bench warmerWith the NBA Finals in full swing, the unlikely duo of Jimmy Kimmel and Usher teamed up on the fifth 'Jimmy Kimmel Live: Game Night' special (Weeknights, 8PM ET on ABC) to sing the praises of the guys who often get overlooked in these buzz and b-ball-filled days: The benchwarmers.

In a smooth and sultry ode to the players who "stand up and sit back down again," Kimmel and Usher sang a simple truth about today's lauded NBA superstars: "They can never be the best without the guys on the bottom."

This parody wasn't exactly on the level of, say, 'I'm F****** Matt Damon,' but Kimmel's bended-knee, R. Kelly-eque outburst ('I Believe I Can Fly' never sounded so ... desperate) and Usher's oh-so-earnest slow-jam crooning make this one worthy of at least a few repeat spins.
