Basketball should be more about music

After a anti-drug rap video that a basketball team creates receives rave reviews, the team's owner decides to focus more on music than basketball. I guess this could be the reason that Shaq was recently traded to the Phoenix Suns. Here is the link to the inspiration for this sketch.

The sketch starts in the owners office. His desk is covered with CDs and head shots. The GM walks in.

Herb have you seen all the mail we've been getting regarding the team's rap video?

I have and judging by this weeks Billboard 100, it looks like we have a hit on our hands here.

That's great! Maybe the video will actually reach kids and the drug epidemic will end.

That would be great, Jim, but I think you're missing the importance here.

I thought we were trying to help kids?

Well...look at it this way, we were putting our feelers out. Now we know that what we thought could be marketable IS marketable. This changes the whole philosophy of how we will approach this organization. I've been looking at these photos and listening to demos all morning. Russel Simmons and Dr. Dre are coming in later to discuss the possibilities of this venture. We need to start getting the paper work flowing so that we can get the key components installed so that the gears really start moving. We also need to get all of our current players to cut demos as soon as possible. That is at the utmost importance. I want to give them a fair chance of keeping their spot on the roster.

Some of these guys are All-Stars, are you saying that their position on the roster might be in jeopardy.

What the hell does that have to do with anything? Just do what I say and don't ask any questions. (under his breath) asshole .
