    Cool BSL Basketball Players Song Contest

    It was arranged by Sport5 "Starting 5" TV show for DivA basketball league players in Israeli league.

    Amazing, sometimes it's like WTF those guys doing in basketball & not performing instead

    Placed the clips in the order I personally like it, judge yourself

    It was a great joy to see these basketball players perform songs. All of them are good, but I liked Brandon Bowman in Lionel Ritchie's "Hello" most. Bowman clearly has a beautiful unique voice and added so much of his own to the song. Did anyone win or was this a non-competition thing.

    This format should be copied by the NBA and other leagues in which they challenge themselves with interpretations or even better original works.

    This reminds me of French basketball player Tony Carter very decent effort in "Premiere Love" featuring Rickwell



    He has also done hip hop songs like "Balance Toi"



    Tony Parker feat Fabolous Booba - "Top of the Game"

    The competition isn't finished yet, every week there is a new performance that can be voted @sport5 web site.

    I'll try my best to update this thread with new clips.

    PS Tony Parker is a beast

    So we are counting on you that you put the rest of the performances as they come.

    By the way, is this open also to local players as well or just for international players? I don't see why not that there may be local talents as well...

    Kobe actually raps

    Kobe Bryant Freestyle Rap with J. Xavier - "Ballin"



    Kobe Bryant feat Tyra Banks - "K.O.B.E....."



    Kobe was also involved in a Chinese release with Jay Chou

    He just makes nominal contributions but it is counted as a single

    This series is so cool. And it is such a swell to come back to their cover efforts. It lifts up your spirit and you go "Can I do a cover of this or that myself?" It is that inspiring.

    By the end, its not really who is the best really. It's the spirit and this "ambiance" (French word) they are creating.

    I found all these players genuinely funny and good natured, and they are trying their best to entertain. Good for them. Kudos also to the studio producers who are trying to make sense of how to put that extra something into the songs.

    The story telling is just compelling and that goes to the one who is talking to them or just filming them in the series just letting them be and be expressive without too much intervention.
