NBA Draft Walk-Up Songs – Class of ’96
The 1996 NBA Draft class is widely considered to be one of the deepest and most talented classes in the history of the league, with over a third of the first round picks making at least one All Star Game, eight players named to an All-NBA Team, two Defensive Players of the Year, and three (!) different league MVPs. But these guys were not just ballers on the court, as their cultural impact off the court was immense and still felt today, shaping everything from hip hop culture to the sneaker world, to the movies and beyond.
As the hype leading up to recent NFL Drafts has become less about the selection itself and more about what songs first round picks will walk out to, we couldn’t help but dream about David Stern having the foresight to give NBA draftees this opportunity back in the ‘90s and wonder what some of these guys would have picked.
Read on to see our picks of walk-up songs for each of the 13 lottery picks in this loaded draft class.
