There are lots of music videos that pay tribute to basketball, the greatest game on earth.

The videos may not necessarily be ALL about basketball. But the very cute references these artists put in their songs about basketball are remarkable and just show how much the love of basketball is universal and how these artists are attached to it, if we care to look a little bit more into their minds.... and hearts.

NOTE: Sorry these vidoes have been removed by YouTube. But I'll keep the references to the videos. Here they are

---

A great example of tribute to basketball is Mark Wahlberg when he was Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch in this song called "You Gotta Believe". A Spurs fan and a very decent basketball player as well...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJO1jbLaUSs

Mark Wahlberg you may remember also acted a brilliant role in "Basketball Diaries" one of the most memorable movies I've seen in my life

---

Mark Wahbelg was also very active in celebrity / charity basketball events alongside a lot of the brightest stars of the time. Here is his performance in MTV of "Good Vibrations" with heart-warming clips of him playing basketball and really diggin' it.

And here is the touching "Life in the Streets" where he wears the #13 jersey of the US National Basketball Team:

I would also suggest the country music star Kenny Chesney in a great tribute to basketball friendship "Who You'd Be Today" when one basketball player reminisces his basketball teammate and how soon he died.

"Sunny days seem to hurt the most
I wear the pain like a heavy coat
The only thing that gives me hope
Is I know, I'll see you again someday

Someday, Someday..."

The country sensation Tim McGraw is well known to love and play basketball every chance he gets. Here in his cult song "Cowboy In Me" and in one of the most memorable lines in the song:

We ride and never worry about the fall
I guess thats just the cowboy in us all

he is shown playing basketball, as if he would have also sang: We (rise) and never worry about the fall, I guess that's the (ball player) in us all" or that's how I see it anyway.

Without this interpretation, the basketball scene would have been totally meaningless... and would not have been there anyhow... So my guess is it is there for a purpose... and shows ultimate tribute to basketball in one the most famous of his songs that you can find here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vQ1v1y4XTk

His friendship with Nelly on a basketball court, because they had become basketball "buddies", would result later on in another world number one called "Over and Over Again" by Tim McGraw and Nelly collaborating.

Blink 182's "What's My Age Again?" is one of the most "revealing" video clips ever done where they run stark naked.

Why is it a tribute to basketball? Actually the band members, naked throughout, also pass running naked through a basketball court where one of the Blink's actually snatches the ball and scores a basket while the basketball players are looking amazed...

So nice of Blink 182 to greet basketball in this classic clip. Shows how much they love the game.

I had mentioned Tim McGraw for his immense love of basketball and how he had put in his country antheme-like song "Cowboy In Me" (the live version) a video footage of him playing basketball...

UFVpezv_Caw

And as if just to prove yet one more time his love for the game, he has paid another tribute in his new hit song "Last Dollar" where yet again basketball is featured between 0:51 and 0:55:

Michelle wants to criticize Britney Spears triviaising her video. "Hit Me Baby One More Time". She says: "Oh yeah, gyrating and lip-synching on a basketball court counts..."

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wp_AOMkxA1k

Personal opinions about videos are fine with me, by all means. We can object to any or all the videos as lame, mediocre, unworthy. Almost everybody hated Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe as talentless rappers (those who criticize them do have good reason... anyway they are basically players more than rappers... so their output is more like posing and imitating... Even Shaquille's acting may suck.. but then he is a player, not an actor.. he is jumping on the bandwagon..)

One sent me a message saying country music is crap... Why do I put nobody's like Tim McGraw or Kenny Chesney or Sugarland here... Why don't we stick with rap that is the ultimate medium for displaying basketball culture, he reasoned. But please no Marky Mark, he simply can't rap to music... (another video I had featured). He also noted LuDux's videos were quite superior as basketball value and as music videos.

But I come from an altogether different mindset. The whole reason for putting them (they might have just 2-3 seconds in the whole video - so definitely not basketball videos... like Blink 182's "What's My Age Again?" or Avril Lavigne's "Complicated" or Coldplay's "Scientist" or Sugarland's "Want To" or Tim McGraw's "Last Dollar") is acknowledging anybody's effort to say he/she loves the game in their official music videos. I am putting the videos, not for their "value" as music videos, but as a display of all those who wanted to show their love to basketball as a tribute. Many of our colleagues never had the notion there were these specific basketball references in these specific videos (they might not have the time to watch thousands of pop videos... they have better things to do). But at least when put here, conveniently, one after the other, they know these songs and the precious basketball references they carry... I just hope many more put videos here that do have such, albeit brief references to basketball...

In theory, the singers don't really have to put any basketball in their songs, yet they do. Most of the video may not be about basketball whatsoever except in passing, for a brief second or two. Some may have no connection to the game itself and this may be their very brief greeting to the game before moving to other things... But for me, that's all it takes to embrace these particular artists and appreciate what they have done is to have these small snippets they they put in their videos. If only we feature proper purely basketball songs, the list would be too short and all these videos would be discarded (though hopefully not)

Regarding Britney Spears, I do not have such a high opinion of her general music output either. But yet I know that she has publicly displayed huge dedication, actually played basketball in many charity events (was a basketball player as a start) and clearly her big break to music was through this so-called basketball video where she "gyrates" on court... But isn't that what basketball cheerleaders do? Or take it as just a fantasy / fetish she obviously has for basketball guys.

"Hit Me Baby One More Time" remains truly a video of typical school yard crush when girls see basketball boys passing by. The male dancers (with basketball jersey numbers 20,10 and 5...) act as basketball fetish in the video. Inside the court, the crush is also displayed where she exchanges secret looks with the lonely basketball player and he for a second returns with such a yearning look, and then moves along to some other girl as Britney is shown all alone dreaming holding a basketball, by her hands then putting them down near her feet... to be awakened to he real world by the school bell to leave all yearning for this basketball guy and back to lessons... I believe this is a video that definitely counts as a basketball tribute...

really impressed by this topic and by the Tamborilero video which is kind of hard for me to explain since its a very emotional song. It is a typical christmas song in Puerto Rico and Don Omar recorded that song for a Christmas Special which, controversy aside, was a huge success mainly because of this song.

Many thanks for these Puerto Rican basketball videos. I particularly love the Don Omar's "Donqueo" (Dunk) song and video. Even the way it's written "Donqueo" I found it so chic and classy.

I remember very well when we were discussing reggaeton music, you did mention this great song dedicated to basketball.

Live version of Don Omar's song here:

I am also adding the words to Donqueo. Many sites containing the lyrics just show ?? instead of accented Spanish letters, so I am putting one that shows all the letters correct with the accents and all here:

http://www.quedeletras.com/letra-cancion-donqueo-bajar-54899/disco-los-bandoleros/don-omar-donqueo.html

You made my day with these videos and comments. It is such a pleasure and I do support the Puerto Rican national basketball team so much, always have been, always will be.

Johnny Reggae is a cute oldie by the Piglets. It has basketball conection as well. I haven't found the video of this if there was one. But here is an audio version:

JOHNNY REGGAE
by The Piglets

What's he like Mavis?
He's a real tasty geezer.

He's grown his hair a bit
But it's smooth not too long
An' he wears a baseball shirt,
With a number seventeen on
He looks great in his
Big white basketball boots.
He's stupid over football,
An' he looks me in the eye
When he shoots.

Reggae Reggae Reggae
Here comes Johnny Reggae
Johnny Reggae Reggae lay on me.

He always start a fight for me,
He's always on the phone
At the dance-hall in the evening
He'll always take me home
In his fringe and buckle stompers,
And his two-tone tomic strides
He's a real tasty geezer
An' I'm his - here - inside.

LOL

Basketball plays an important part in the life of Natives and Aboriginals at least in North America. How important? Well important enough to have their own Native basketball leagues. I had the great pleasure in attending a couple of the events, and they are quite impressive I tell you.

This love of basketball by the Natives is also expressed in songs and videos as well.

Just take a look at War Party's "All For One"

Here in Canada, we are celebrating the Aboriginal Day and there is also a week-long festival celebrating their richness.

If you don't want to watch over all the video, you don't like country, no harm. But at least give it a look for the first ten seconds where there are cheeky remarks by a very old man addressed to a very young... basketballer, when the youth cuts his basketball practice to comment on a passerby cutting his mom's cultivated flowers...

The rest has nothing to do with basketball, if you don't want to waste 3 minutes of your time, just watch the first few secoinds.... unless you really get interested with this old man's story as it goes on....

NBA French basketball player Tony Parker has put up a beautifully romatic video on occasion of his marriage to his long-time friend Eva.

The song called "Premier Love" (first love) features Rickwel in vocals.

1vIU08-Y0aA

PREMIER LOVE
Tony Parker featuring Rickwel

1.

On s’est connu
On était gosse
T’étais mon premier love
Bien avant le basket
Mon premier titre
Toujours ensemble à l’époque
On était croque l’un de l’autre
On était jeune
On était fous
A qui la faute ?
On était rien sans l’autre
On était simple on était deux
On pensait un
Un seul amour
Un seul avenir
Un seul chemin
Et j'me rappelle
Quand j'te serrai dans mes bras
Tu me disais que t’aimais ça
Que t’étais au nirvana
Tu m’as rendu meilleur
J’avais un cœur de pierre
De cupidon t’étais la flèche
Mon cœur était la cible
Je n’avais pas de tunes au départ
Pour toi, j’aurais décroché la lune
Sans la fusée
Toujours derrière moi quoi qu’il arrive
T’étais mon pare balle,
Mon porte bonheur, quoi qu’il arrive

Refrain :
C’était toi et moi à l’infini
Si tu tombes, je tombes
J’étais Clyde t’étais Bonnie
You know I’ll never lie to you
All I do have done for you
You're my lover
My heart always beating for you
Nothing there I couldn't do for you
I could die for you
Baby you're my first love
My love

2.

Les années passent
Concentré dans mon basket
Notre amour se dissipe
On a grandi si vite
On se prend la tête
J'perds le fil de nos vies
On s’est connu trop jeune
De l’avis de nos amis
Tu m’as toujours dit
Que j’étais l'seul et l’unique
Tu m’aimerais jusqu’à la fin
Quel qu’en soit le prix
T’étais mon premier amour (t'étais mon premier love)
T’étais ma meilleure amie (t'étais ma meilleure amie)
Je ne t’oublierais jamais
Malgré le succès
Les strass et les paillettes
Les fans et les groupies, tu sais
Mes souvenirs j’les garde dans ma mémoire
Nos éclats de sourires et tes pleurs tard le soir
J’regrette rien
Mes sentiments sont toujours là
On reste amis
Y a pas de futur sans histoires

Refrain
C’était toi et moi à l’infini
Si tu tombes, je tombes
J’étais Clyde t’étais Bonnie
You know I’ll never lie to you
All I do have done for you
You're my lover
My heart always beating for you
Nothing there I couldn't do for you
I could die for you
Baby you’re my first love
My love

3.

J’parle au passé de notre histoire (t’étais mon premier love)
T’étais mon double
On s’est aimés (t’étais mon premier love)
On s’est quittés
On reste amis (on reste amis)

J’parle au passé de notre histoire (t’étais mon premier love)
T’étais mon double
On s’est aimés (t’étais mon premier love)
On s’est quittés
On reste amis (t’étais mon premier love)
T’étais mon premier love
T’étais mon premier love
T’étais mon premier love

The very touching and sad lyrics for those who understand French

Il suffirait simplement
Qu'il m'appelle
Qu'il m'appelle
D'où vient ma vie
Certainement pas du ciel

Lui raconter mon enfance
Son absence
Tous les jours
Comment briser le silence
Qui l'entoure

Aussi vrai que de loin
Je lui parle
J'apprends tout seul
A faire mes armes
Aussi vrai qu' j'arrête pas
D'y penser
Si seulement
Je pouvais lui manquer

Est ce qu'il va me faire un signe
Manquer d'amour
N'est ce pas un crime
J'ai qu'une prière à lui adresser
Si seulement
Je pouvais lui manquer

Je vous dirais simplement
Qu'à part ça
Tout va bien
A part d'un père
Je ne manque de rien
Je vis dans un autre monde
Je m'accroche tous les jours
Je briserai le silence
Qui m'entoure

Aussi vrai que de loin
Je lui parle
J'apprends tout seul
A faire mes armes
Aussi vrai qu' j'arrête pas
D'y penser
Si seulement
Je pouvais lui manquer

Est ce qu'il va me faire un signe
Manquer d'amour
N'est ce pas un crime
J'ai qu'une prière à lui adresser
Si seulement
Je pouvais lui manquer.

Ray Stevens "The Streak" has a great basketball tribute. The whole third "streak" event is in a basketball court, he gets streaking and playin' basketball, he's a basketball referee and the basketball players.... well I'll let you watch it actually:

XtzoUu7w-YM

The lyrics related to basketball in the song "The Streak":

Once again, your Action News reporter in the booth at the gym
Covering the disturbance at the basketball playoff
Pardon me, sir, did you see what happened

Yeah, I did
Halftime, I's just goin' down there to get Ethel a snow cone
Here he come, right outta the cheap seats, dribblin'
Right down the middle of the floor
Didn't have on nothin' but his Keds
Made a hook shot and got out through the concession stand
I hollered up at Ethel, I said "DON'T LOOK, ETHEL"
Too late. She'd already got a free shot
Grandstand. Right there in front of the home team

(Whoa, yes they call him The Streak)
Here he comes again
(Looka dat, looka dat)
Who's that with him
(Fastest thing on two feet)
"Ethel! Is that you Ethel
(Looka dat, looka dat)
(He's just as proud as he can be)
What do you think you're doin
(Of his anatomy )
(He gonna give us a peek)
You get your clothes on
Whoa, yes they call him The Streak
"Ethel, where you goin'"
(He likes to show off his physique)
"Ethel, you shameless hussy"
(If there's an audience to be found)
(He'll be streakin' A-round)
(Invitin' public critique)
Say it isn't SO, Ethel
"ETHEL"

The main reason I put these videos as a tribute to basketball is that the prison yard, the huge place where they practice in, has basketball boards where prisoners may practice basketball.

For me while watching these great dances in this very useful prison programme, I always see the basketball boards in all the videos, and feel great.

Hopefully basketball will catch on in all reformed prisons. It brings good feelings I am sure to those who practice it even within prison walls and makes them better persons.

when he shoots that basketball
I can't help but wishing that i could do more

[Chorus:]
Paper angels you're in my thoughts and prayers
No matter where you are right now
remember God's right there
He's asking all of us to help take care
Of his paper angels everywhere

If you would be the one they're picking on
Would you would you
Be the who's gonna stand up strong
Honestly
Would you let us lie break down and cry, oh
Would you would you would you
Never let nobody step on your right

What if it was your brother sister mother father child
Then would it still be cool?
Why can't you see your words are hurting?
Everybody deserves to be themselves and no one else
So think before you move

What about if that was you
That would the victim (victim)
Of the criticism
And they treated you that cruel
What about if that was you
That would be bullied (bullied)
How would you feel
If they were doing it to you?
What about if that was you
How would you would you would you feel
Honestly
How would you would you would you feel
If they were doing it to you?

Just imagine how you would feel
If everybody always laughed at you
Would you would you would you
They think it's ok with me and you
If you were me
And the people 'round you
Were having you down now
Would you would you would you
Like if they did that to you?

What if it was your brother sister mother father child
Then would it still be cool?
Why can't you see your words are hurting?
Everybody deserves to be themselves and no one else
So think before you move

In the Japanese basketball promo, I loved the idea of using the volcanic summit on the mountain as a basket ring.

This is real genious. Absolutely charming that the basketball player reaches top of the mountain and is so high... It's basically what basketball is really .. its the closest to heaven as we strive for the highest and gets as if perpetually suspended in air. This is what the promo conveys

Thanks Sinobball for this piece of gem. The music "top of the World" is also very appropriate. Zeebra (real name Hideyuki Yokoi, a Japanese hip hop artist) must be very proud his song fits the essence of basketball so well in the way its used.

Actually any series with a basketball-theme would have universal appeal even if there is the language hurdle, a problem which can be easily solved by English subtitles on the bottom of the screens.

Actually any series with a basketball-theme would have universal appeal even if there is the language hurdle, a problem which can be easily solved by English subtitles on the bottom of the screens.Language is not the problem, it's cultural (and for that matter racial). For example, as far as I know, many of the Chinese-language series listed above are shown in Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Philippines etc. TV stations and therefore subbed or dubbed, but you won't find them broadcast outside of Asia (specifically E & SE Asia) in any form. I don't know Europe, but in America there are almost no known Asian actors despite being a sizable percentage of population... so it's also racial.

To get back to topic, here's a MV by a former Taiwanese women's player Rosa Chien (played internationally for 20 years..)

But "SlamDunk" and the mangas proved that this can be surpassed. "SlamDunk is just classic mainstream manga and anime that enjoys huge popularilty.

Which way should I go

A basketball in my hand
But I got no hoop
Gotta find me a place
So I cant shoot
I got dreams of being like Michael J.

Showed me the way

This is the same Canadian Indian artist that made a video wearing Toronto Raptors #4 jersey (worn by Chris Bosh). Roach Killa is based in Toronto, and obviously a basketball fan. The video is "Yaara Dildara"

Just to add to your collection, wbb. Edison Chen is the singer in the first video. Gillian Chung is one of the two singers in the 2nd. People in Asia know what the two names have in common, and it's not the choice of basketball courts.:D

Canadian Natasha st Pierre in "Je n'ai que mon ame"

The video contains a lot of horses, true... but also a brief showing of a basketball board. Just enjoy this which was incidentally a Eurovision song for France but it did not win!

A feast of all sports and naturally basketball (a lot). A very sports fetish type of song

There are many animated sports presentations including basketball

This is in context of Panini for Charity. The song is great and the music video very well done.

Cover version of "Friday" originally by Rebecca Black.

Here is the parody version by Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon and American Idol Taylor Hicks. I put it here in "tributes" because of the New York Knick City Dancers...
