Calls For Snoop Dogg To Commentate NBA Games After Hilarious Boxing Debut

Snoop Dogg has had plenty of aliases throughout his life.

We've seen Snoop Doggy Dogg, The Doggfather, Uncle Snoop, Coach Snoop, DJ Snoopadelic, Snoopzilla - the list goes on and on.

He even reincarnated into Snoop Lion for a little bit.

But Snoop's latest reincarnation might just be his best yet.

Over the weekend, the legendary rapper transformed into what's being described as "the best sport commentator of all time".

That's right, Snoop tried his hand at boxing commentary - and it was just as good as you'd imagine.

49-year-old Snoop was in the commentary box for Jake Paul's bout with former NBA player Nate Robinson on the undercard of Mike Tyson's highly-anticipated return to the ring.

The YouTuber stole the show by knocking out his opponent in the second round with a huge right hand.

But while Paul received some praise for his flawless display inside the ring, most people quickly turned their attention to the real MVP of the night: Snoop.

The Los Angeles icon was in sensational form while calling the event.

When spectating Tyson's match-up with Roy Jones Jr, he even described the scrap as: "like watching two of my uncles fighting at a barbecue".

But the highlight of his night came after Paul dropped Robinson in the very second round as Snoop busted out a gospel hymn to pray for the downed boxer.

"Ohhh my Gawd!" Snoop said.

"Lord have mercy. Oh Jesus!

"Take my hand, lead me home, let me stand."

Seconds later, Paul ended the bout by knocking Robinson out cold.

The moment produced a golden one-liner from Snoop, who simply said: "Goodnight Irene."

His commentary, combined with his pre-fight performance of 'Drop It Like It's Hot', left many fans calling for him to change career paths.

NBA star Donovan Mitchell tweeted: "Snoop gotta do an NBA game."

While ESPN TV personality Stephen A. Smith said: "Are y'all listening to my man @SnoopDogg call this fight. I don't know about the rest of y'all, but I'm loving this. Snoop's the most entertaining part of this fight. He's doing fantastic."

This isn't the first time Snoop has stepped into the commentary box either.

He has made countless cameo appearances on the mic while watching his beloved Lakers play throughout the years.

But perhaps what got him the call-up to boxing was his well-documented work with the UFC.

Snoop made his MMA commentary debut during Dana White's Contender Series when Sean O'Malley knocked out his opponent in devastating fashion.

Sports-mad Snoop was calling the fight alongside UFC legend Urijah Faber - the two friends sipping on, you guessed it, gin and juice.
