Early in the season the streaking Golden State Warriors developed a team tradition of singing the popular rap song "CoCo" by O.T. Genasis after each victory and posting the sing-along to social media.

Unfortunately, the NBA caught wind of the ritual and decided it was not great for the league's brand to have one of its team singing an ode to illicit drugs on Instagram so it asked the team to stop.

The players obliged after claiming they thought the song was about cocoa, but with their Game 6 win, the season is over so they can do whatever they would like, and what they would like is to sing "CoCo." 

The team recorded another larger sing-along in the locker room after the win, including some of the song's more explicit lyrics, which can be seen here.
