What if the rap game were the NBA?

Recently I was thinking about how NBA players and the rap game go hand-in-hand. Lots of players are friends with rappers and some players even try their darn hardest to earn respect in the rap game. This got me wondering which NBA players are comparable to current rappers in today’s modern era. Here are my thoughts on who is who:

Jay-Z is Kobe Bryant

This has to be the easiest analogy one could make about the rap game/NBA. Both are living legends who are still active in their respective industries. Jay-Z and Kobe are both “winners”, as Jay has 11 “rings” (platinum albums) while Kobe has five NBA Championship rings. Oh, both are married to bangin’ chicks as well.

Kanye West is Lebron James

This one might come under fire by hip-hop and Ye fans, but the similarities are striking. It’s no lie when you say that both are disliked people by the general public. Kanye had his moment(s), Lebron has had his. However, both have proven their worth in their industries and are extremely important to both of their games. Both men have single-handedly altered each of their games in someway both for the positive and negative. It’s also important to think of both as “all-around players”.

Play of the Day – 3/11/11

Here are yesterday’s top plays:

Top Play of the Day: Russell Westbrook Windmill Dunk

Love seeing little guys sky.

Runner-up: Blake Griffin Left-Handed Alley-oop

We see it every night from this guy. What makes this dunk more impressive is that it’s left-handed.

New Feature: Play of the Day

Everyone’s favorite part of Sportscenter is its nightly Top 10 Plays of the Day, so why not have our own Play of the Day daily feature here at CSC?  As you would expect, we’ll post the best play in from any sport (as long as there is video online) and likely a runner-up. So, let’s begin:

Play of the Day: Kemba Walker’s Buzzer Beater vs. Pitt

The only thing I can think of while watching this clip: “Damn, Brittney Griner just got her ankles broken!”

Runner-up: Guy Dupuy does a between-the-legs dunk over a car

This guy’s no joke. He would own every single NBA player in the dunk contest. Just let him in next year, Mr. Stern. Please?
