Tune in for the fifth installment of the "Jimmy Kimmel Live: Game Night" primetime special, THURSDAY, JUNE 9 at 8:00 p.m., ET, when Jimmy welcomes Los Angeles Laker Ron Artest and premieres a music video starring himself and R&B superstar Usher.
First, Artest sits down for an interview in which the basketball star discusses how his world championship team is not competing in the NBA Finals for the first time since 2007. Later, Jimmy reveals hidden camera footage of the animal friendly but frightened NBA superstar when he is faced with some very exotic animals.
"Jimmy Kimmel Live: Game Night" also showcases a music video in which the late night host collaborates with R&B artist Usher in an original song dedicated to the men on the basketball bench who often get overlooked -- the "Benchwarmers." Don't miss the debut of this duet on ABC.
