From Yahoo!

From “official” creations like the Chicago Bears“Super Bowl Shuffle” and the Atlanta Hawks“Nothing Can Stop Us” to the independent Indianapolis Colts rhapsodizin’ of Lil’ Ronnie and Syracuse Orange fans’ cringe-inducing ’03 effort “Cuse Yourself,” there are way, way more anthem failures than success stories. (Want to hear some more negative examples? Uproxx gotcha.)

Which is why it was so refreshing to hear, via Boston hip-hop blog Jump the Turnstyle, that Cambridge, Mass.-based crew N.B.S. (Natural Born Spitters) had dropped a Boston Celtics-themed NBA Finals anthem that didn’t, y’know, stink.

And on the wack-ass track that Ice Cube took time off from his new sitcom to record…

Unfortunately for those big-timers the song is pretty outdone, because it’s six mostly underwhelming minutes of lackadaisical verses laid over the completely overused “Beamer, Benz or Bentley” beat, closed out by a verse from a dude named Lil Rob who seriously sounds kind of like if Konnan from the nWo was a rapper. There are a couple of decent lines, I guess — Chino comparing Rajon Rondo(notes) to Smeagol from “Lord of the Rings,” Ice Cube making fun of Paul Pierce(notes) needing his wheelchair and calling Larry Bird an “overrated nerd” (c’mon, son) — but mostly, it’s just three times as long as “Who Are We?” and half as interesting.
