Inspired by this post (http://forums.interbasket.net/showthread.php?5478-The-Sabonis-Appreciation-Thread&p=692878&viewfull=1#post692878) by qiangdade, let's post songs that were dedicated or refer to basketball players.
A good thread for worldbasketball I can guess ;)

The only way I would start this is to put this tribute to Drazen Petrovic
Then we move on....

So first Drazen

Songs about MAGIC JOHNSON

==

Red Hot Chilli Peppers wrote a song about Los Angeles Lakers star basketball player Magic Johnson. The band are huge Lakers fans

"Buck" was the nickname given to him by his Lakers teammates, they didn't call him "Magic"
So that's what you hear in the song

I just adore the song

Red Hot Chilli Peppers - "Magic Johnson Song"
It's from the album "Mother's Milk"

Then there is this adorable song by a 9-year old girl Niki Rios
You might think it is so stupid and cliche
Then it hits you

Its about AIDS when Magic Johnson tested positive HIV

I wonder what happened to this girl
Is she proud of this now..
You should know people still love you for this!

She sings

Thank you Magic Johnson,
For showing us what’s true.
Your greatness will save us.
God will smile on you.
Now we know the way, and what’s right to do.
Thank you, Magic Johnson!
We all love you!

Comedian musician Derek Nestor of Dinosaur Project

A comic and hillarious take on Magic and tons of other NBA players LOL

The photos added by the uploader add to the hilarity of the song...


This is performed at Catches Open Mic
