Here’s my pick for the best rendition of the Star Spangled Banner ever.  It comes from the late great Marvin Gaye at the 1983 NBA All-Star Game.

I can’t mention Gaye without showing these awesome old school pics of him playing ball with Jesse Jackson.


And this video of Gaye playing one-on-one with the late Don Cornelius.
