To athletes on every level, the proper pregame listening experience is just as important as the shootaround or pregame ankle tape.

Music from certain artist may actually help some players like JR Smith play better.

According to some number and date crunching by Kenny Ducey of Hashtag Important, the music of Lil Wayne drives the Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard to a better place on the court.

Weezy is so important to Smith’s play that Smith actually plays better after the rapper releases a new album or mixtape.

Take a look:

Ducey couldn’t guarantee JR listened to these albums and mixtapes before he played in his next games, but came to the conclusion that Smith has a penchant for going off after new music from Tunechi.
