James Harden, CP3, and Allen Iverson were among the stars in attendance at the NBAPA Player Awards that aired on BET last night (recorded Sunday in Vegas.)
Below, BET put together a classic, but always interesting video asking the above stars and more what they listen to before games. CP3 is pretty set on Weezy, who also performed “Glory” live on stage below, and AI… well, he’s pretty set on a certain artist too and it’s probably one you wouldn’t think of at first. Enjoy!
Just one of the many quotables from Blake Griffin & Chris Paul as their new Adult Swim comedy sketch series hits its 2nd week in equally hilarious fashion as the premiere. New Jordan Brand athlete, Jabari Parker cameos… and then gets treated like a rook.
Hmm, maybe hometown Chicago Bull and fellow new Jumpman athlete, Jimmy Butler could cameo in a future episode too? Speculation aside… this was me while I was watching above.
By now, we all know of Blake Griffin & Chris Paul‘s sense of humor in their various KIA and State Farm campaigns, respectively. Now, the Clippers all-star teammates are taking it to another level with the premiere of BGCP3TV in HD — the ridiculously titled comedy short series on the Adult Swim and Jordan Brand YouTube. That’s right, this was on the Adult Swim last night… and to top it off, Chappelle’s Show writer Neal Brennan spearheads the sketch comedy show. Blake & CP are the stars here as, if you vibe with Griffin’s, and thereby Paul’s, deadpan humor, you’ll enjoy all 6 minutes of this like I did. Besides, seeing NBA players outside of their element is always fun. I’ll be tuned in every week now.
Leave it to Instagram to kickstart the NBA offseason, right?
Two fun goodies here as first, over the weekend, KD bet Game he couldn’t make an NBA 3… for $20,000 dollars! Game, who if you don’t know actually does have game, sank the shot for the $$$ (that’s going to be donated to a youth basketball team in southern Cali), but also… KD has to play for Game’s Drew League team this summer. Hah! Among those in the peanut gallery: Drake, James Harden, and DeMar DeRozan.
In other NBA Instagram fun, Chris Paul posterized Kevin Hart yesterday, as captured by Kyrie Irving. Oh summer fun.
