Who'd Win an NBA Rap Battle Tournament?

Ah, those were the days. So who are the new hip hop kings of the NBA?

Hip hop and basketball go together like peas and carrots. Or like Eric B. and Rakim.

Ice Cube confirmed that he once easily achieved a triple-double, so we know that rappers can ball (per "Today Was a Good Day").

But are there ballers that can flow? Absolutely. There have been and always will be.

But this tournament is limited to active players, so Cedric Ceballos and Dana Barros are ineligible. 

We won't be hearing Shaquille O'Neal's Shaq Diesel. Allen Iverson won't be dropping any jewels. Nor will Gary Payton be flowing, though he could do so if he wanted (as Too Short can attest).
