An album of Marv Albert's musical stylings? Too much. But he's among the sports figures to make memorable pinch-singing appearances
Appeared on the 1992 song "Perfect Sense Part II" by Pink Floyd's Roger Waters, announcing a war as if it were a basketball game: "He's at periscope depth. It looks to me like he's going to attack. He fires one. Yessss!"
