The Atlanta Hawks aren’t big fans of Taylor Swift

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — The Atlanta Hawks recently quizzed a couple of their players by presenting them with some lyrics, and then asking them whether or not these were lyrics from an actual song. The Hawks players mostly seemed to think these were not lyrics from a real song. Which I suppose means they do not listen to much Taylor Swift, although I have to agree that out of context, these lyrics do seem a bit unbelievable. I guess Taylor isn’t gonna invite Al Horford up on stage anytime soon.

The Miami Heat sign Taylor Swift

ALL BALL NERVE CENTERTaylor Swift‘s national arena tour keeps on trucking across the country, and after Kobe Bryant joined Swift on stage in Los Angeles, it set a pretty high bar as far as NBA participation goes. So last night, while a couple of other NBA teams were getting started across the country, Swift brought her talents to Miami, and who better to welcome her to Miami than Dwyane Wade?

Russell Westbrook really enjoyed the Taylor Swift concert

ALL BALL NERVE CENTERTaylor Swift started her run of concerts in Los Angeles with Kobe Bryant presenting her with a banner, and last night, Oklahoma City point guard (and Los Angeles native) Russell Westbrook — who as we previously noted, is a huge Taylor Swift fan — attended her show and got his groove on…

Kobe Bryant joins Taylor Swift on stage during concert

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Last night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, at the latest stop on her “1989 Tour,” singer Taylor Swift had a special guest join her on stage. Lakers guard Kobe Bryant made a surprise appearance, taking the stage to unveil a banner commemorating Swift’s 16 sold out shows at the Staples Center, the home of Kobe’s Lakers (as well as the Clippers).

Russell Westbrook loves Taylor Swift

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — When your season is over and you’re driving around in your car with the sunroof open and the windows down and the weather is nice and you’re feeling pretty good and that new Taylor Swift song comes on the radio and you are kinda nodding your head and starting to feel the beat and then Taylor starts singing, what exactly are you supposed to do?

If you’re Russell Westbrook, you sing along with her. Take it away, Russ…

Andre Iguodala shakes it off

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Two nights ago during the big Grizzlies/Warriors game, the Warriors got upset late in the game when Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley appeared to take three steps on a lay-up. Walking was not called on the play, and after lobbying a referee in vain for a call, Warriors forward Andre Iguodala walked away and broke into a dance step to demonstrate how he felt Conley managed to get open. (This was when the refs finally made a call — a technical foul on Iguodala.) The Grizzlies got the win, but a few days later, with the help of a Taylor Swift soundtrack and some editing from @CJZero, Iguodala just has to shake it off…

‘Shake It Off’, meet ‘Shaq It Off’

By Jeff Case

Taylor Swift‘s song, “Shake It Off” is No. 1 on the Billboard Top 100, the iTunes download charts and has inspired some cool viral videos both in the NBA world and outside of it.

Leave it to an NBA fan to take a classic gif of Shaquille O’Neal and a dancing cat and set it to the pop song, then …

Taylor Swift and the NBA

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — OK, you’re asking, understandably, what does pop star Taylor Swift have to do with the NBA? Surprisingly, a good amount, at least for today. Two things…

1. For some reason she was at Madison Square Garden yesterday wearing a throwback jersey and hanging with Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire

Not to mention the Junk Yard Dawg, Jerome Williams

2. Swift’s latest hit is a song called “Shake It Off,” but as we all know, a song isn’t a real hit until it gets parodied by an NBA mascot and some players. Take it away, Denver Nuggets. And you go, Timofey Mozgov
