Some of the players who were selected in the 2019 NBA Draft last week couldn't identify '90s acts like OutKast and Destiny's Child.
Coby White, who was selected by the Chicago Bulls, was one of the players who couldn't name the rap legends after he was shown a photo. Some were also dumbfounded when they were shown a picture of Nintendo and the kids' toy Easy-Bake Oven.

Ok so like I know they haven’t heard of ATLiens and the early stuff. But I thought for sure Ms Jackson or Hey Ya would’ve made an impression. I’m only 28, but yeah, this made me feel old in my bones like never before lol— Tyler Rowland (@Tyler_A_Rowland) June 22, 2019
