Give Mark Jackson props for having his finger on the pulse of hip-hop culture and social media.
Fresh off Birdman's now-infamous "put some respeck on my name" rant on The Breakfast Club on Friday, the former NBA star and current ESPN analyst didn't hesitate working in the line during a live play call Sunday night.
The moment came during Game 4 between the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors. When the defending champions lost Stephen Curry to an injured knee but still wound up trashing the Rockets, Jackson yelled, "When you say Warriors, put some respeck on their name."
Ha! Too funny. Check out Jackson's play call below.
We hope Jackson keeps trolling Baby throughout the NBA playoffs. He could still use the "I could've pulled up" or "ya'll finished or ya'll done" part of Birdman's rant.
Put some respeck on Mark Jackson's name out here.
