If NBA Players Were Rappers Who Would They Be?: NBA Finals Edition


Is it just me or does every NBA baller want to be a rapper, and every rapper want to be a baller?

With the month of June filled with the NBA finals and releases from some of the biggest names in Hip-Hop, let’s just pretend for a minute rappers were ballers, which ones would they be?

Here’s what I think a couple of the players in the NBA finals would be if they were rappers.

Rajon Rondo – Drake

Let’s be real, both of these dudes were mainstream unknown a couple years ago. Now, it feels like both of these guys are considered top 3 in the game today at their positions. Rondo like Drake is everywhere and cannot be (more…)

    This is very nice Jason and i agree with them all… I think the funnist one was Artest and West!!! lol

  • Dub

    Eminem and tha birdman chris anderson can be similar cuz they both crazy, drugged out, and wierd lookin….but both really good at what they do. Eminem rapping & Birdman flyin n blocking shots like he got wings.

  • Immer

    Good comparisons. (Especially the case for Jay-Z and Kobe. I didn’t consider that one; I would have gone with the immediate LeBron relation.)

    I think the Pau Gasol/Eminem comparison is a bit of a stretch though.

  • Major Glory

    LMAO at that Ron Artest Kanye one! You a fool for that pic and that song!

  • Rah

    i got another one paul pierce and fabolous….both were consistently great throughout their career and just needed a little help to take the game over.

  • d.

    This is kind of stupid.

  • redcora


  • YB

    I’d say Game would be LeBron

  • LZ

    Jason Maxiell actually looks like Nas

  • Deematrix

    If you want to say look a like it derek fish and common….lol

    Drake should be compared to Kevin Durant. Both are up and coming SUPERSTARS that are versatile. KD is almost a 7 footer that can do it all with the rock. Drake is a good rapper with pretty good singing skills.

    Comparing Kanye West to Ron Artest is a stretch. I can see that, maybe because of the honesty both of them have, but as far as success, Kanye has 14 grammys and all albulms are certified platinum except for 808s which is gold. Ron has one ring where he is like the fifth or six option and does not always lock down his defender.

    Pau Gasol and Em is just stupid. How about Larry Bird and Em.

  • Phillip

    Kevin Garnett will be 50 Cent. Paul Pierce is Fabolous
