If all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, then no work and plenty of time on his hands due to the government shutdown means Amin plays. For more Liner Notes, check out the HP 2013-14 Season Preview.

Just shoot from the block
If it feels right
We’re running down clock
If you feel like
Take a fadeaway. Just make it, OK?
You swear you’ll behave?

You want ball control,
So we waited.
You put on a show,
Then you drain it.
We know you’re the best
And there’s no contest
You don’t give a shit,
And it goes like this:

Stickin’ out your tongue
As an homage.
A free-throw line dunk
And you’ll wow us

With all the moves like Jordan.
You’ve got the moves like Jordan,
You’ve got the moves like Jordan.

Don’t need to take the last shot to prove this.
“Check out Sportscenter, and I’ll do this”

With them moves like Jordan.
You’ve got the moves like Jordan.
You’ve got the mooooooooooooooves like Jordan.

Maybe it’s hard
When you feel like you’re broken and scarred.
Nothing feels right.
You should rest your knee.
Against the Sixers next week.
We won’t be in need.

So sit by in your suit.
Ride the bench, yeah
We’ll want to root
With the bench guys.
Just make sure you cheer
And get off your rear
But we’ll take it from here (Oh! Yeah yeah!)
But we”ll sure miss this:

Stickin’ out your tongue
As an homage.
A free-throw line dunk
You’d have wowed us

With all the moves like Jordan.
You’ve got the moves like Jordan.
You’ve got the moves like Jordan.

Don’t need to suit up to prove this.
You’re the MVP even if you’re rested.

Still got them moves like Jordan.
You’ve got the moves like Jordan (Yeah yeah).
You’ve got the mooooooooooooooves like Jordan.

We wanna know how to be contenders.
Take control, lead us just for the year.
“But if I share the secret,
You’re gonna have to keep it.
Nobody else can see this.

“So watch and learn
I won’t show you twice.
Coast to coast, baby, cover it all night.
But if I share my secret
You’re gonna have to keep it
Nobody else can see this (Ay! Ay! Ay! Aaay!)

“And it goes like this:

“Stickin’ out my tongue (Stickin’ out my tongue!)
As an homage
A free-throw line dunk
And full court press!

“All the moves like Jordan
I’ve got the moves like Jordan

I’ve got the moves like Jordan.”

(Oh, yeah)

“Don’t need to take the last shot to prove this
Check out Sportscenter, and I’ll do this

“With them moves like Jordan
I’ve got the moves like Jordan
I got the mooooooves…like Jordan.”
