The 1987 Lakers Were Good at Rapping

The 2010 Lakers are in the throes of a two-game losing streak, so today's a good time to take stock of things we can be thankful for. For instance: NBA teams no longer record indecently stupid rap videos. Via the clip below, I was reminded earlier today that this was not always the case.

They're saying something about doing drugs, I guess - they're against it? - but the important thing is to note that Kurt Rambis and Pat Riley were once aspiring MC's. Their mic skills are so bad that playing the above clip will actually leave a sticky film on your monitor. Still totally worth it, though.
