Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard and a few other NBA athletes took to Instagram to record four bars of freestyle rhymes for what is being touted as #4BarFriday.
Some of the rhymes are pretty nice, especially Indiana Pacers swingman Paul George. On the flip-side, NBA writer/analyst Ric Bucher should probably stick to his day job.
What follows may be perceived as anything from very entertaining to, perhaps, downright unethical. Enjoy.
A lot of y’all acting like ya don’t know what today is… … … #4BarFriday

Here, we have George breaking it down in four bars.
Golden State Warriors forward Harrison Barnes showed up with his mic skills too.
4 Bar Friday isn’t just for the young, active NBA players.
Former NBA journeyman Cedric Ceballos, who played for the Phoenix Suns, Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat, among others, drops a few rhymes as well.
For anyone in dire need of a reminder that not all rhymes are created equal, here is NBA columnist/analyst Ric Bucher.
Did Bucher even do a full four bars? Did his last two lines even rhyme?
We’ll let sleeping dogs lie and move on.
To redeem non-NBA athletes from hip hop humiliation we turn to Nate Jones, a sports consultant with Goodwin Sports—a sports management firm.
Now that we’ve had our fun, it’s time to relax, turn on the stereo and enjoy some real hip hop.
