(AllHipHop News) Birdman may have created the quote of the year during his very brief interview with The Breakfast Club last week. After the Cash Money Records head told DJ Envy, Angela Yee, and Charlamagne Tha God to “put some respeck on my name” the line was instantly added to countless memes across the internet.
It wasn’t just online users that embraced Birdman’s now classic saying, ABC basketball commentator Mark Jackson used the quote during Sunday’s game between the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets. As the network was cutting to commercial, the former NBA player and coach gave a shout out to the Warriors by using Birdman’s words.
“Total team effort by the Warriors. MVP [Steph Curry] goes down, they find a way to get it done,” said Jackson. “When you say Warriors, put some respeck on they name.”
The defending champions went on to defeat the Rockets 121-94. The Warriors managed to take the win despite the fact Curry did not play in the second half of the game because of a knee injury. Houston now trails Golden State 3 games to 1 in the Western Conference first round playoff series.
