Mark Cuban was attending the finale of The Colbert Report when he finalized Thursday's blockbuster deal that sent Rajon Rondo to the Dallas Mavericks and Jameer Nelson, Brandan Wright, Jae Crowder and a 2015 first-round pick to the Boston Celtics.
ESPN's Keith Olbermann was in the room with Cuban as it happened, along with the cast of The Newsroom and Boston fan and United States ambassador to the U.N. Samantha Power.
Rondo is averaging 8.3 points, 10.3 assists and 7.5 rebounds for the Celtics in 22 games played this season.
