LAUGH BREAK: Snoop Dogg Commentates The 1954 NBA Finals

The NBA Finals was officially extended to at least six games after the Cavaliers pulled out a win in Game 5 against the reigning champion Warriors on Monday night. To honor the competitive spirit of the series, Jimmy Kimmel invited rapper and host of his late-night "Plizzanet Earth" segment Snoop Dogg to dive into the history of the great American sport of basketball.
Or as Snoop puts it: the Hizzistory of Bizzasketball. Naturally.
Take a moment to enjoy this clip of him commentating the 1954 NBA Finals, and be sure to cherish the truly special moments of a bygone era of "athletic achievement."
“Is that a black man out there?!"
You've got to love how genuinely excited he was to see a black athlete amidst the sea of hilariously inept white players. It's also just generally amusing to observe how much the game has changed in the last 60 years, and no one is better at capturing that sentiment than Snoop Dogg. Who else could manage to sound cool while narrating black and white video of a professional basketball player shooting a free throw "granny style"?
Sports television is really missing the boat by not hiring this man to call games. I could really get on board with his laid back vibes as a counterbalance to Cris Collinsworth's arrogant rambling. Who knows, maybe a little maryjane in the booth is exactly what NBC needs to make Collinsworth tolerable.
I think we can all agree that it would be worth a shot.
