    I say Get It On The Floor every year, to no avail. I hate the beginning of the intro this year, but once the second beat kicks in when they're actually being announced has some nice hard bass. Gonna have some serious goose bumps at the game on Wednesday!

    The Anthem - Kardinal Offishall

    The opening song for this year (based on the preseason games) seems to be "Work Hard Play Hard" by Wiz Khalifa

    I think this years season opener will be very well prepared and dramatic sort of like the 09 - 10 season. Last years was meh, cause it was a rebuilding season. But this year it should be off the charts, wouldn't be surprised if they brought in an orchestra

    That one was a 15 year anniversary, I doubt they'd do anything like that until 20 years

    I'm pretty sure they've used "Victory" and "Run This Town" before. I can't see them duplicating. My suggestions are:

    http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Fg_1-sF9W3o "Name of the Game" by Crystal Method

    http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=rAFSmeabGxo "Bodyrock" by Moby

    http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=lhJfdWxpI2Q "Boom" by P.O.D.

    And just for shits & giggles
    http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ewOzi5-AZXU "Hit 'Em High" by B-Real, Folio, Method Man, LL Cool J and Busta Rhymes.

    Not sure why video embedding isn't working....

    Not necessarily. They used Nas' "Hate Me Now" a couple of years ago, and that song was from the late 90s.

    I think they might go Meek Mill. They shouldn't use Drake that douche doesn't even support his home town team

    It's usually, though not always, a rap song, which is fine by me. However, I could appreciate this one (has this been done? sounds familiar). Probably starting at ~30 seconds.

    Probably cause most nba players and fans listen to rap. I don't really mind any kind of music as long as it is good

    i think it was jay triano not the players. That dude doesn't even know the meaning of defense i guarantee that. I've said it before, if DC had that team we would've won over 45 games easy.
