Go into any locker room in the NBA… actually, go into any locker room in the country and you’ll hear some Meek Mill. Some Jigga. Some Drake. Music and basketball. The NBA and hip-hop. It all goes together.

With the season in full swing, we figured it was time to show off a few of the artists your favorite players are currently listening to. As the calendar pushes closer to Christmas (Eds. note: the NBA schedule that day is incredible — Bulls/Nets at noon, Thunder/Knicks at 2:30, Heat/Lakers at 5:00, Rockets/Spurs at 8:30 and then finally Clippers/Warriors at 10:30 ET.), these are the jams NBA guys will be listening to instead of “Silent Night.”

Check out the list below.
