For more than a decade, Kobe Bryant was Lil Wayne's favorite player in the NBA. The Los Angeles Laker was his kindred spirit, his lyrical inspiration for random bars ("I'm more Kobe Bryant of an artist," on his "Show Me What You Got" remix) and full songs (the aptly named "Kobe Bryant").
But Kobe played his last game in the NBA in April, and with the finals now underway, Tunechi has found a new allegiance: LeBron James and his Cleveland Cavaliers. On "Off Off Off," Wayne shouts out LBJ and just about everyone else on the Cavs -- from coach Tyronn Lue to part-time rapper Iman Shumpert — while also demanding, like any star player, "Pass me the ball!"
With their win over the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night, the Cavs are now undefeated in the finals following Lil Wayne dropping an anthem for them. Was the victory all because of him? Probably.
