2020 NBA Draftees Struggle to Name Destiny’s Child and Other 90’s Music Groups

Destiny's Child

When you see Destiny’s Child and think it’s TLC, you know you’re a young buck.

The 2020 NBA Draft brought out a recent ritual game played with draftees called, “Name The 90’s”. Pictures of objects and people that were relevant in the ’90s are shown to the newly drafted players to see if they can identify them.

Some items are a major struggle. Floppy disks and beepers are completely unfamiliar to them, but so are some of the most popular music groups from that era.

A few players mistook NSYNC for the Jonas Brothers. Some even called them The Beatles.

Another group they couldn’t name was Destiny’s Child, though they did recognize Beyonce in the picture.

Some of the women’s players at the college level might take offense to that.

A few weeks ago the Rutgers Women’s Basketball team paid a tribute to Destiny’s Child during their media day video shoot. They choreographed a special piece described to me by freshman Liz Martino and dubbed their group “Vivian’s Child” an ode to the famed 90’s group and their head coach, Hall of Famer C. Vivian Stringer.


The video includes a cameo from Stringer and was even recognized by Destiny’s Child member Michelle Williams.


Now they’re still waiting for Beyonce to see it.
