According to Hauser, they were singing “Uptown Girl” on Bus One when inspiration hit Kornet. He will often quietly sing to himself in the locker room, but this time he was putting on a show.
After a rousing response from his audience, he decided to start writing a full theme song.
“He’s got a beautiful voice. We heard him when he did it on the bus and he’s been tweaking it, so I’ve heard enough to know it’s heavenly,” Griffin said. “One bus ride he was particularly quiet and then he had some lyrics, so maybe that’s when he wrote it.”
Kornet is the imaginative hub of the Bus One Boys, essentially an English professor moonlighting as an NBA player. From his Kornet Kontests
to somehow pulling off using the word “phlegmatic” on media day, there is hardly anything about Kornet that seems conventional in the NBA.
