Rappers: Which NBA Player Would You Be And Why?

Some rappers happen to be thoughtful, intelligent people. Every Monday that isn't the day after a gigantic local music festival, Rocks Off will have some of them here discussing issues relevant to their culture.

This Week's Panel: Bun B, Zavey, Kyle Hubbard, Mac, Dice, Hollywood Floss, Cuddy, Mr. Wired Up (Oh Boy), Mr. 16, Thurogood, Coyo, Doughbeezy, Tawn P, Yung Truth

Not Invited: LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh

This Week's Prompt: In honor of the Mavs: If you had to liken yourself to any NBA player, who would it be and why?

Bun B: Great question. I liken myself to [Hakeem] Olajuwon; silent but deadly, confident but not cocky, professional but ready to get 'em up.

Zavey: Jackie Moon [from Will Ferrell's Semi-Pro].

Rap Round Table: Care to explain?

Zavey: Naw [laughs].
