Arrow NBA references in rap songs...

Post NBA references you've heard in rap songs.

Quote:
Anthony Mason - New York [Remix] (The Game)

Now the fckn hip hop police hatin
tryin to run me outta New York like Anthony Mason

Quote:
Jason Williams/Jayson Williams - Ground Zero (The Diplomats)

Chill while I’m chasing millions
I’m a baller that would merk you like Jayson Williams

Quote:
Lil Wayne:
"You see me with my Marbury posture/I don't play ball, I point-guard every dollar."

Quote:
Nas:
"From O.J. to Kobe, uh let's call him Tobe/First he played his life cool just like Michael/Now he rock ice too just like I do/Yo, you can't do better than that?/The hotel clerk who adjusts the bathroom mat?"

Quote:
Kanye West:
"She ordered Kobe beef like Shaquille O'Neal/Second I stepped in, the whole room gets still/I don't know how to put this, but I'm kind of a big deal."

Quote:
Joe Budden
"We don't think the same/I'm like Josh Howard/I need time out, but it'll cost the game."

Quote:
Cam'Ron:
"I hang with Steinbrenner just to get my cash turn/I call my car Jamal, it get "Mashburn"/Crash, burn, rest in peace Dale Earnhardt/My cousin died the same way, he hit that turn hard."

Just a couple...

Ludacris - Theater of the Mind (2008)

Undisputed
Quote:
Bow down to greatness
Before I get pissed and run up in the stands like the Indiana Pacers
Covered all my bases, straight, no chasers

Quote:
They shoulda warned ya - you got defeated
by the +Heat+, but ehh, we'll just say we Alonzo Mourn'd ya
So call the coroner (hey!)
I'll show up to yo' funeral with some gators like I'm FRESH outta Florida

Quote:
First round draft pick, later for you imbeciles
the car is all black like it got traded to the Timberwolves
And I keep a little bit of that green up in the lining

Everybody Hates Chris

Quote:
Party with Britney, Lindsay and Paris together
Get in line and buyin bottles that's taller than Chris Webber
And makin haters sneeze from diamonds and sick leathers

Stay Together

Quote:
First it was Shaq and Kobe, then Iverson and Philly
T.O. and McNabb, even Game and 50
I guess sometimes you gotta let the past be the past
But I'd give a hundred thou' to see Jay with Dame Dash



Cool Kids - School Was My Hustle (2007)

Cruise Control

Quote:
***** made, staying on point like a switch blade
Balling on a budget foam ball and a milk crate
Y'all ain't **** to me
Like Magic, y'all ain't sick to me

Move on Up

Quote:
Right to remain tyrant
Systems chews you up and spits you out like a stick of trident
It don't matter if you Tookie or Kobe Bryant
Clock strike 12, you just another *****

Their other album actually is full of references, I'll check it tomorrow.

My favorite, supposedly about Anthony Mason:

Quote:
The **** she kicked, all the ****'s legit
She get dick from a player off the New York Knicks
***** tricked ridiculous, the **** was plush
She's stressin me to ****, like she was in a rush
We ****ed in his bed, quite dangerous
I'm in his ass while he playin gainst the Utah Jazz
My 112, CD blast, I was past
She came twice I came last, roll the grass
She giggle, say I don't smoke it on homegrown
Then I heard her moan, honey I'm home
Yep, tote chrome for situations like this
I'm up in his broad I know he won't like this
Now I'm like ***** you better talk to him
Before this fist put a spark to him
**** around **** get dark to him, put a part through him
Lose a major part to him, arm, leg
She beggin me to stop but this cat gettin closer
Gettin hot like a toaster, I cocks the toast, uhh
Before my eyes could blink
She screams out, "Honey bring me up somethin to drink!"
He go back downstairs more time to think
Her brain racin, she's tellin me to stay patient
She don't know I'm, cool as a fan
Gat in hand, I don't wanna blast her man
But I can and I will doe, I probably chill doe
Even though situation lookin kinda ill yo
It came to me like a song I wrote
Told the ***** gimme your scarf, pillowcase and rope
Got dressed quick, tied the scarf around my face
Roped the ***** up, gagged her mouth with the pillowcase
Play the cut, ***** comin off some love potion ****
Flash the heat on em, he stood emotionless
Dropped the glass screamin, "Don't blast here's the stash,
a hundred cash just don't shoot my ass, please!"
***** pullin mad G's out the floor
Put stacks in a Prater knapsack, hit the door
Grab the keys to the five, call my ****** on the cell
Bring some weed I got a story to tell, uhh...

Josh Howard:
"We don't think the same/I'm like Josh Howard/I need time out, but it'll cost the game."

Unless if Josh Howard turned rapper from a NBA star, i'm pretty sure that was Joe Budden.

Budden kills it when it comes bringing out athletes in his songs and "he has no regard for human life."

"embrace pain,
ask Eddie Griffin - You gonna lose everytime goin' up against a freight train."

"and it hurts my soul, I'm a warrior, so though the odds are against a n!gga, Dirk gonna choke."

"Rappers flyin' high, then got suicidal
Imitate Jim Jones, end up like Cory Lidle" - this one was like 2 days after Lidle died.

This is just the ones I remember off the top of my head...

Yeah I meant Budden.

I forgot who verse it was, but it went something like "I'll leave you on IV in the ER Son. (Iverson). Anyone recognize it?

Raekwon on "Triumph"
Quote:
Connect thoughts to make my manchild walk
Swift notarizer, Wu-Tang, all up in the high-riser
New York Yank' visor world tranquilizer
Just a dosage, delegate my Clan with explosives
While, my pen blow lines ferocious
Mediterranean, see y'all, the number one draft pick
Tear down the beat God, then delegate the God to see God
The swift chancellor, flex, the white-gold tarantula
Track truck diesel, play the weed God, substantiala
Max mostly, undivided, then slide in, sickenin’
Guaranteed, made ‘em jump like Rod Strickland

Don't know the songs, but hopefully I got the artists right at least

The Game - "On the Rebound like Ben Wallace into D-Town, I mean Chi-town, **** it, it can go down" "We rocking like Tracy McGrady, send it to houston in a grey mercedes."

Heiroglyphics - "Hard nosed in the contest like Ron Artest"

Jedi Mind Tricks - "Call me Mike Frattello baby cause I call the shots"

Those are the ones that immediately come to mind, but 'm pretty sure every album ever produced in the genre namedrops at least 3 NBA stars.

NBA by Joe Budden

Quote:
Jump off, you rap guys is a joke/
I'm here to take the scoring title/
without the green light from my coach/
Man, don't make me have to smack your lineup/
I'm Michael Jordan, y'all Harold Minor's that rap ******/
All black ski mask, gloves, tuck the thing/
Drive slow, lights out like "I love this game"/
I live this y'all paint that pic/
And like Magic, I'm starting to believe y'all dudes ain't that sick/
Might see ya boy scooping up a bird to get knowledge/
Number one draft pick, and I skipped college/
Snakes in the trenches I peep those, get injured/
End up like Grant Hill on the bench in your street clothes/
Talk about he real, how he quick with a glock/
But like Kurt Thomas he ain't good for **** on the block/
See the gleam from the shoes/
Man, I don't mean to seem rude/
Gunshots do you like Vancouver, make your team move/
(Let's Go!)

[Chorus:]
It's gone be the NBA never NBC (Yeah)
Rookie of the year slash MVP (Rap suckas, we back)
Never channel 4
We handle the 4
It's the number one draft pick (Yours truly)
Let your gat spit, *****
[Repeat]

Can't treat me like a sucka/
Gather up your five, man meet me at the Rucker/
Put the heat to you ****ers/
Half Man-Half Amazing with a clip in my boot/
My 4-5 will make you "Skip To My Lou", think about it/
Understand when I was younger I was all on my own/
So when I said 3-2, I wasn't calling a zone/
Nice truck, nice house and chain/
I car jacked you like Shaq shooting a 3 man, get outta your Range/
This is regular hood ****/
I put Don Cheaney under the arm and show him how to make a good knick/
If you wack, you need to probably write/
Either that or quit it, throw in the chair like you Bobby Knight/
I work damn hard/
But don't think I can't rob/
Can't pitch, I still handle the rock like Shammgod/
Still hurt you cowards/
Still see me merking them Prowlers/
And know they still call me Dirk in Dallas/
I'm that *****/

[Chorus]

Man I kill lame queers/
It still ain't clear/
That I stay with a tech like Bill Laimbeer/
I got tools for rilly/
With shells that make your temple hot/
And I ain't talking 'bout a school in Philly/
I ain't a selfish player/
Man, I help your weight up/
Cuz only Riders in this game now is myself and Isaiah/
Listen, you gettin dissed/
While I'm screwing these miss's/
I'm on cruise control you still moving your pivot/
But I'll show you how mean this crook be/
You and your dogs' like the Houston Comets, a team fulla *****'s/
Creep/
It ain't a game no more, it's a sport/
If you ain't got heart to play then stay off the court/

[Chorus]

Nas from the song "Can't Forget About You"

"Can't forget about Jordan's retirement
The shot Robert Horry to win the game in the finals kid
Some things are forever, some things are not"

That earlier Nas one about kobe is probably the best though.

Stevenson got a whole tribute done to him

"Who the f*ck is overrated?...
Hatin'? that's only gonna make him spend the night
Out of spite with the chick you've been dating"

"I don't know what y'all on
This is chess - know the difference between the king and the pawn"

Jay-Z - blow the whistle

this might've been the beginning of the end for Deshawn...
