What is your favorite lyric involving an NBA player?

People are runningout of ideas, so I ponied up to make one that will surely be even worse than almost any other out there! What is your favorite song (most likely hip-hop) lyric involving a basketball player, preferably an NBA basketball player. I love Biggies flow in "Gimme the Loot" ("I'm slammin nigg@z like Shaquille...", but the lyric isn't overly clever, though he kills the track), but my all-time favorite is Nas in It Ain't Hard To Tell. "I kick the skill like Shaquille hold the pill, vocabulary spills I'm ill..." is a classic including the Diesels name, but there are many other non-Shaq basketball lyrics (Jay-Z has a few too many about Michael Jordan). Anyone else have a favorite? (By the way, even if you are not a hip-hop fan, "It Ain't Hard To Tell" is a track to look up, Nas kills it, but Large Professor used a Michael Jackson voice sample and beat sample from Human Nature. It is one of my favorite Michael tracks, love hearing it now more than ever).
