Blazer rookies sing “Happy Birthday” to Nicolas Batum in French

Blazers center Meyers Leonard posted a pretty funny video on his Instagram this morning of Blazer rookies Allen Crabbe and CJ McCollum singing “Happy Birthday” to Nicolas Batum in french.

Batum turns 25 today.

McCollum definitely carried the tune but it looks like everybody involved had a good time.

Someone out there is going to have to come up with a name for these Blazers about their affinity for singing.

First they had the rookies sing Happy Birthday at fan fest.

Damian Lillard was singing in the locker room after the Blazers win against OKC and Robin Lopez and LaMarcus Aldridge just sang in a commercial for a car dealership.

And that’s without talking about Lillard’s #4BarFriday rap competition and the team’s trip to the Drake concert.

I guess the team that sings together wins together.
