Michael Jordan has 5 percent and that business is $2 billion. He makes a $100 million dollars a year off of 5 percent royalties. Nike told me, ‘We can’t give you royalties because you’re not a professional athlete.’ I told them, ‘I go to the Garden and play one-on-no one. I’m a performance athlete.

YES!!!! YES!!!! After years of searching, I’ve finally found Jason Kidd’s 1994 rap track “What The Kidd Did.” I’ve long been searching for this song, where he talks about how good he is at basketball and everything else.

This is big day for me.

Listen to famous 1994 rap star J Kidd “kick ass like Jim Kelly.” And i’m pretty sure that’s Money-B from Digital Underground in the background. WESS COAST!

"Skinny Love"

Jason “Jet” Terry played like a Beatle tonight. Now and forever line 1 of his basketball bio. Hats off to talking big and bringing it bigger.

In regards to MIchelle Collins’s list of best & worst celebrity renditions of the National Anthem on this week’s HWYW podcast, listener Jon Solomon has pointed out this egregious oversight. Above is a clip of Marvin Gaye singing The Star Spangled Banner at an 1983 NBA All-Star Game. It is extraordinary.

Solomon quotes Alexander Wolf on Gaye’s performance:

He took his sweet, sweet time with it…Out on the floor the players tried to be stoic, but Marvin soon had them bobbing to the rhythms he had unlocked in that old warhorse.

Watching this clip got me pregnant. And you know who the father is? America.

Before Bron-Bron and Jigga there was Shaq-Fu and Biggie. And they even put it down together on a track. Marketing move, obvs, but any excuse to hear the late, great is a good excuse.

Kim Gordon would approve.
