NBA players love Future, Lil Uzi Vert and Young Jeezy. That was one of the takeaways I gathered from a fun little piece basketball magazine/website SLAM did on which players serve as their respective team’s locker room DJ.
Another thing I learned: Mike Miller only gets control of the Denver Nuggets’ locker room music on Wednesdays.
The Nuggets take a fairly egalitarian approach to who controls the music bumping in their locker room. It’s a shared task, according to SLAM. On hump days, Miller gets the aux cord.
“I only get it on Wednesdays, the 17-year NBA veteran said.
“Yup. White Boy Wednesdays,” Miller’s teammate and friend Jameer Nelson joked.
Check out SLAM’s slideshow.
You might be able to guess which player controls the music in the Oklahoma City Thunder’s locker room.
“Everybody knows who’s in charge in our locker room, man,” Thunder forward Josh Huestis said of a certain MVP candidate. “He goes with a lot of Biggie, a lot of Lil Uzi Vert, you know that from his commercial. And if you’re going to try to do take control, you better bring something good otherwise it’s being changed quick.”
