The Lyrics

Mark Cuban's Mavericks...
My struggling-ass Knicks...
A sex-hog from L.A...
Yeah, that's the N.B.A.

Down here, the white guys...shoot threes,
Or they're benched...PA-LEESE...
(It aint hock-ay)...
Nope, it's the N.B.A.

Tell me why,
There is a team in Memphis...
Tell me why,
The Clippers play like dog shit...
Tell me why,
Lebron James can buy Paraguay...
Yeah, that's the N.B.A.

Van Gundy's hired...
Doug Collins...fired...
Don't see...that every day...
But heck, it is the N.B.A.

Tell me why,
Shaq can't shoot from the foul line...
Tell me why,
Pat Riley doesn't resign...
Tell me why,
The Cavaliers decide to play...
This is the N.B.A.

No more NBC, oh man how can this be?
The theme song there was so damn cool, yeah...
Oh well that's a loss,
Cuz David Stern is the boss,
And he prefers A...BC... liar,
Your time's...expired...
You bum,
You bum, you bum, you bum...

Don't wanna hear you say,
"Yo judge, it was a mistake,"
This trial aint a piece of cake,
(Open your eyes man)
Moron, you had Vanessa Laine,
Yep, this is the N.B.A.

Tell me why,
Malone moved out of Utah...
Tell me why,
The Celtics never go fAH ...
Tell me why,
The Spurs win when they're not that great...
Well folks, cuz it's the N.B.A.

Tell me why.................
The Raptors don't try one bit...
And Yao can't help the Rockets...
I don't know...
I guess it has to be that way....
(It's gotta be that way man)
Yeah......that's the N.B.A...
Yeah......that's the N.B.A....

It was great, it just threw me off that it was a song about the NBA to Backstreet Boys.
