The whole thing got us thinking about what songs the rest of the team could perform if they were asked to take the microphone. Obviously, there's are some players who could pick from thousands of songs with ease (Jan Vesely) but we tried to limit it to what we think each player's best song would be.
Trevor Ariza: Straight Outta Compton by N.W.A. Technically, he went to school in nearby Westchester, but nobody's going to sing Straight Outta Westchester.
Bradley Beal: Sexual Bealing by Marvin Gaye - I'm not quite sure how a Marvin Gaye beard would look on Beal, but this is a viral video waiting to happen.
Trevor Booker: It Won't Be Like This For Long by Darius Rucker - Bet you thought we'd go with a Lil' Jon song to poke more fun at him talking about crunk, right? Well, we decided to take it a more practical direction. Booker knows how to play a guitar, so it would only make sense for him to play a song from a fellow South Carolinian.
Cartier Martin: Cartier by Elton John - Don't think we need to explain this one too much.
Nene: The Weight by The Band - Maybe not the best song for his vocal range, but he's had to handle plenty of heavy burdens in his career, both on the court and off the court.
Emeka Okafor: The Smartest Man Alive by The Broken West. Emekapedia might not be able to get up like he used to at UConn, but he's shown this year how much of an impact he can have, just through his hoops IQ.
A.J. Price: Price Tag by Jessie J - Sure the song choice is mostly tied into his name, but it's also probably worth mentioning he's a free agent at the end of the season.
Chris Singleton: Blow It Up by R. Kelly - It's the perfect song to play when you're buying lottery tickets.
Jan Vesely: Macarena by Los Del Rio - Like we said earlier, we could pick just about anything here, because it would be awesome, so we went with the craziest song we could think of.
John Wall: Mista Tung Twista by Twista - The fastest player needs the fastest rap.
