A while ago, word got out that former Nuggets coach Brian Shaw had started rapping his pregame scouting reports in the locker room, in an effort to connect with his younger players. Now, point guard Ty Lawson has posted video proof that this actually happened:
I don’t know what I was picturing when I first heard the report that he was rapping his scouting reports, but it was probably something like this. It definitely has the feel of a dad trying to stay hip to what the kids are into. The players were laughing in the video, but given how they had all completely checked out on Shaw up until his firing in March, it’s pretty safe to assume that they were laughing at him, not with him.
