Finger roll layups, teardrop jump shots, double clutch dunks… NBA All Stars might look smooth on the court, but their skills don’t always translate to the microphone. Even some of the best ballers have had truly awkward moments in the world of hip-hop.

1. Dwayne Wade On The Tonight Show

How do you know if you have a killer hip-hop track? If Jay Leno‘s head is nodding along.

2. Shaq to Kobe: “Tell Me How My Ass Tastes”

In his 17 years in the NBA, Kobe Bryant has taken a lot of flak from the media. That’s nothing compared to Shaquille O’Neal‘s trash talk.

3. Ron Artest Vs. The Taliban


From attacking a Detroit Pistons’ fan to raising awareness of the plight of Afghan women through a hip hop music video, Ron Artest certainly has range.

4. Kobe On K.O.B.E.


Whether it’s a basketball game or the rap game, Kobe Bryant knows who he can rely on: “K.O.B.E.” (Apparently Nate Dogg had the day off so Kobe had to rely on lyrical legend Tyra Banks to deliver this killer hook.)
