Papa Don’t Take No Mess

Two weeks ago I pressed publish on a ridiculous post. It was a list of players and songs that had become linked in my mind, accompanied by a plea for some basketball mix-makers to breathe life into my ridiculous ideas. I didn’t expect even one response, but so far I’ve been blessed. Yesterday, Jack Maloney of Saving the Skyhook made my Jordan Crawford dreams come true. And today, Hickory-High contributor, Rich Kraetsch, has gone above and beyond. Paul George don’t take no mess and I can’t thank Rich enough for putting it together.

Here’s the rest of my ridiculous list:

  • Ricky Rubio – “Supertrooper” by ABBA
  • Derrick Rose – “Running with the Devil” by Van Halen
  • Carmelo Anthony – “Can’t You See” by The Marshall Tucker Band
  • Russell Westbrook – “Footloose” by Kenny Loggins
  • Andrea Bargnani – “Lorelei” by Styx
  • Andre Drummond – “Detroit Rock City” by KISS
  • Steve Nash – “Love Shack” by The B-52s
  • Jordan Crawford – “Picture Me Rollin’” by Tupac
  • Kawhi Leonard – “Use Me” by Bill Withers
  • Roy Hibbert – “Let it Whip” by Dazz Band
  • Paul George – “Papa Don’t Take No Mess” by James Brown
  • James Harden – “Superstitious” by Stevie Wonder
  • Dirk Nowitzki – “All Night Long” by Lionel Ritchie
  • Evan Turner – “War” by Edwin Starr
  • J.R. Smith – “The Entertainer” by William Joel
  • Eric Bledsoe – “Son’s Gonna Rise” by Citizen Cope
  • Lance Stephenson – “Safety Dance” by Men With Hats
  • Stephen Curry – “Ring of Fire” by Johnny Cash
  • DeMarcus Cousins – “Folsom Prison Blues” by Johnny Cash
  • Mario Chalmers – “Turn Me Loose” by Loverboy
  • Kevin Durant – “Jukebox Hero” by Foreigner
  • Chris Paul - ”Superbad” by James Brown
  • Mike Miller – “Moonshine” by Moonshine Bandits
  • J.J. Redick – “Crunchy Granola Suite” by Neil Diamond
  • Kyrie Irving – “Fel Del Av Garden” by Movits!
  • Klay Thompson – “I’ll Take You There” by The Staples
  • Kevin Love – “Lady 95″ by Styx

If you’re feeling inspired by the work of Rich or Jack (or my bizarre iPod), go to town and send me the results, we’ll give it a place of honor here at Hickory-High.
