Every year, we get pumped for NBA All Star Weekend because it always has the same awesome things: slam dunk contests, three-point contests and the skills challenge. Wherever it's held, that town turns into a huge party all weekend. So of course, rappers show up (they love basketball almost as much as parties).
With all the rappers hanging out, we wish we can see them ball more. That's why we're proposing a 2-on-2 tournament where rappers pair up with NBA players. Here's how we think the ideal tournament would go, with teams hand-picked by us:
LeBron James & Rick Ross Vs. Blake Griffin & The Game
While it might not be fun to listen to Lebron James bust a verse, it's damn entertaining to watch Rick Ross ball. Also, they both have gigantic frickin' heads, thus the name "Team Big Head."
As for "Team Clip," Blake Griffin plays for the Los Angeles Clippers, while in each of his songs, The Game raps about 30-round clips. Though his skills on the court are lacking, he might be able to scare his opponents into losing.
Rajon Rondo & Kanye West Vs. Brook Lopez & Jay-Z
Why "Team Kardashian," you ask? If you're reading this, then you have access to the internet, so you know that Kanye West is with Kim Kardashian, and Rajan Rondo punked her ex-husband, Kris Humphries. That means Rondo and Kanye would make a great team, and although we don't know how good Kanye is, we hear he practices quite a bit.
How can you not put Jay-Z, face of the Brooklyn Nets, and Brook Lopez, player and part-namesake of the Nets, on the same team? And not call it "Team Brooklyn"?
