The Anthem: "Blow The Whistle," by Jay-Z
The Team: The NBA's Cleveland Cavaliers
Did It Help? Okay, so Hov's freestyle over Too Short's beat wasn't technically intended to inspire the entire Cavs team and organization. Rather, it featured Jay taking shots at Washington Wizards guard DeShawn Stevenson, who had taken several shots at LeBron James prior to a 2008 NBA Playoff series between the Wizards and Cavs. At any rate, the song propelled LBJ and the Cavs to the next round and put the kibosh on the Wizards' chances of backing up their war of words with Hov and LeBron. Yo, Wizards: That was foul.
