Default NBA Players/Teams music shoutouts...

found this article on the local San Antonio news website about the Spurs....


One of the favorite laments among Spurs faithful is how little attention/respect their favorite NBA team gets around the country.

That does not appear to be the case in the rap arena, where only seven more teams have more individual references in current hip-hop tracks than your San Antonio Spurs.

Not surprising considering Stephen “Stak 5″ Jackson’s status as one of the better baller/rappers around. Which isn’t really saying much, but still. And who can forget this? (Thank goodness you have a night job, Tony Parker.)

In an added bonus, all four shoutouts, as compiled by Spin Magazine, involve curse words! They are as follows –

Manu Ginobili: “The four-four chrome is long-nose / Call it Ginobili, your real (expletive) show me” — Roc Marciano, “The Man”

Tim Duncan: “Any Tim Duncan, spur of the moment / Let the whole world know I run (expletive), jump ship quick” — Asher Roth, “Lark on My Go-Kart”

Stephen Jackson: “Stay strapped-up we G’s in action / Knock out orders like Stephen Jackson” — E.S.G., “(Expletive) With Me”

Tony Parker: “Light-skinned? Nah, a little dark on TV like Bob Barker / Love is lost sometimes, (expletive), ask Tony Parker” — Lil B, “Reggie Miller”

You’d think an enterprising producer out there would have taken full advantage of Gregg Popovich’s “I want some nasty” sound bite. Alas, 2 Live Crew has been defunct since 1998. And no Matt Bonner? Rap truly isn’t what it used to be.

Even without them, only a handful of other teams are referenced more: Dallas (five), Boston (five), the Lakers (six, including…Chris Duhon?!?), the Clippers (seven), Chicago (seven), the Knicks (seven) and, of course, Miami with a league-high eight.

My personal favorite –

Rasheed Wallace: “Chrome stay polished / White spots on like Rasheed Wallace” — Danny Brown, “Metal Gear Solid”

Side note, I cannot even imagine how one would research a list like this. At least in basketball we have multiple data bases and stats engines to work with. But trolling through the entire rap catalogue for individual NBA references?

Maybe we need to figure out a way to incorporate the the two. Shoutout Efficiency Rating, Shoutouts per 48 minutes…John Hollinger, get on it.


what are some lines in songs that represent your favorite player/team? it doesnt have to be hiphop.

Some of my favorite lines

"..that's around the time your idols become your rivals, you make friends with Mike but gotta A.I. him for your survival" Drake - Thank Me Now
