Victor Oladipo and Lance Stephenson are teammates on the court for the Indiana Pacers. Soon, they’ll work together off the court as well.
During a postgame interview on Monday night, Stephenson was visibly distracted by Oladipo — who was singing in the background.
Oladipo, 25, is a passionate musician and release a soul/R&B EP called Songs for You in October. Stephenson, 27, writes music during the summer as well and dropped another hip-hop track called “Better Believe It” during the offseason.
In an interview with Bleacher Report, Stephenson said former teammate Paul George (who was traded for Oladipo) has a rap studio at his house.
“We can’t do it right now because we’re in the season. But I know for sure we’re going to get a track.”
It might not be as wild as if former teammates Kobe Bryant and Shaquille O’Neal had joined each other in the booth, considering they both released music during their playing careers.
But current teammates Oladipo and Stephenson have a very different musical style and it would still be incredible to hear the two NBA players make music together.
