This post is part of our NBA week series, where we explore all things NBA leading up to opening night on October 31st.
Did you know that 12 NBA teams have “Official Team DJs” actually recognized by the NBA?
You’ve heard music at sporting events before, but some NBA teams take it up another level. The following teams employ more than button pushers – they have DJs that get the crowd moving by mixing in-game beats and producing theme-night mash-ups.
NBA Team/Official Team DJ
Cleveland Cavaliers – DJ Steph Floss
Dallas Mavericks – DJ Ro Parrish
Denver Nuggets – DJ Bedz
Detroit Pistons – DJ Prevu
Houston Rockets – DJ Verseatile
Miami Heat – DJ Irie
Minnesota Timberwolves – DJ Mad Mardigan
Oklahoma City Thunder – DJ Benjamin Boom
Orlando Magic – DJ D-Strong
Portland Trailblazers – DJ O.G. One
Toronto Raptors – 4korners
Washington Wizards – Big Tigger
It may not seem like a big deal, but if you haven’t been to an NBA game with an official team DJ you’ll notice the difference once you do attend a game with these turntablist. Check out my interview with DJ Bedz of the Denver Nuggets to get an inside look of a day in the life of these crowd pleasers.
