The NBA playoffs are here, and everyone’s asking the big questions: Who can beat Golden State? Who will be the postseason standout? And most importantly, which teams are name-dropped the most in music?

To celebrate the arrival of the playoffs, LyricFind has pulled together data for the most mentioned teams and players among playoff qualifiers, with name-drops coming from music’s biggest artists, from Drake to Migos and Lil Wayne.

The Golden State Warriors take the crown with 39 song mentions, with the Boston Celtics and Detroit Pistons following closely at 31 and 30 mentions, respectively. Golden State’s Steph Curry leads the way for the most name-dropped player currently in the playoffs with 56 song mentions, followed by Houston’s Chris Paul with 47.
