If you are under 20 you probably only know Brian Shaw as a coach. If you are old school then you might remember the Brian Shaw who won 3 NBA championships with the Lakers. If you are real old school then you might remember the Shaw-Shaq redemption in Orlando or even when Shaw set a NBA record by hitting 10 3-pointers in a game with the Miami Heat. During these good time in Florida, Shaw also participated in the rap compilation album B-Ball’s Best Kept Secret with teammate Shaquille O’Neal. The song he did on the album was called “Anything Can Happen” and it featured some nice production by Too Short’s producer Ant Banks.
Well, anything can happen including a day when Shaw became head coach for the Denver Nuggets and day when he was unfairly fired by the organization. And yesterday, Nuggets guard Ty Lawson shared a “good time” during Shaw’s time as coach, with a video of Shaw showing off his old school flow 20 years after he did as one of “B-Ball’s Best Kept Secrets.”
