Noted Cash Money Millionaire Doug Collins displays his hip-hop bona fides before Pacers-Heat Game 5 (Video)

Yep, that's ESPN analyst and Doug Collins slamming Jalen Rose's alley-oop pass on the reference to "What Happened to That Boy," the now-12-year-old Birdman x Clipse banger. Let us never forget that Collins has spent chunks of the late '80s, mid-'90s, early 2000s and early 2010s in NBA locker rooms, or that he was very comfortable with calling Nick Young "Swaggy" during their shared time with the Philadelphia 76ers.

In answer to the question, though, Miami Heat reserve center Chris Andersen, a.k.a. "The Birdman," is inactive for Wednesday's Game 5 between the Heat and Indiana Pacers, as he continues to nurse a bruised thigh.

Now that I'm thinking about it, let us also never forget that "What Happened to That Boy" soundtracked one of the best basketball sneaker commercials Adidas ever produced. Take us there, Tracy McGrady:
