BCC: SCOTT STAPP
SUBJ: FRIDAY NIGHT
Tonight, Friday November 9th at 7:30 pm, the Rubberband Man himself will be announcing the first half of the Heat-Hawks game.

This means everyone with a League Pass account needs to watch, because this is some historical shit, and if the ratings are good enough, it could start a trend where rappers announce all the other forgettable regular season NBA games we'd otherwise ignore on Friday nights.
Really hoping the Hawks trap a bunch tonight RT @jim_ice: T.I. is doing the color commentary for the first half of Hawks/Heat tonight— Taco Trey Kerby (@treykerby) November 9, 2012
As for Tip Harris, basketball announcer? We asked our resident ATLiens for their response.
Jason Kirk: "Denny Feeerry. Denny Faarray. Diiinny Fehre. Daynee Feeeerii. Dayny Fere. Oh, me? Sorry, just trying to nail 'how T.I. pronounces Danny Ferry's name.' Mostly just glad that the entire Hawks roster is pretty much from Bankhead right now, though."
Spencer Hall: "You need to watch this because T.I. could be arrested for weapons possession and violation of probation during the broadcast. He may also save someone's life at the same time, just as he did with Scott Stapp. Failing one or both of those options, you should listen just to hear his accent."
Hear that, everyone?
Now, forward this to your friends.
Together, we can make this the highest rated broadcast in NBA history, and before you know it, we can have E-40 announcing the Warriors, Bun-B announcing the Rockets, Rick Ross announcing the Heat, and maybe even Prince announcing the T-Wolves. IT ALL STARTS WITH YOU.
