    Back when Knicks guard Arron Afflalo was in high school, he met a young man who would eventually become a hip-hop icon.

    In an article for The Players' Tribune, Afflalo discussed how he sold bootleg CDs as a kid. "It got addicting," he writes. "I would stay on the computer all night downloading songs."

    The Compton student started to get a buzz around Centennial high school because of his business. Teachers would ask him for copies of some old CDs. He also took requests from fellow students, including one who would make CDs of his own one day.
    Lamar once name-dropped Afflalo on his track "Black Boy Fly" when he said, "I used to be jealous of Arron Afflalo." The NBA player appreciate the lyric and told Grantland about going to school with the hip-hop artist.
