Why use the color RED.

It's been well established since the 1950's "Better Dead than Red"

Probably has nothing to do with Marquette or Shaka Smart.
Why won't Kur Kuath answer my DMs?

He blocked me.

You could say it’s paying homage to PBR!

Hmmm, you aren’t associated with this website you found, are you?
Tis a shame, 'tis a rotton shame, for if ye can enjoy the walkin’ ye can probably enjoy the other times in yer life when ve're in between. And that's most o' the time; wouldn't ye say?

Boomshakalaka may have roots in the 1969 song “I Want to Take You Higher” by Sly and the Family Stone. The song includes the funky and sexy nonsense vocables boom-laka-laka-laka.  The 1981 military comedy film Stripes includes a scene where Bill Murray’s character, John Winger, trains soldiers in song and dance rather than drills. The soldiers dance while chanting boomshakalaka, a possible reference to popular versions of “I Want to Take You Higher.”

Also, made famous in NBA Jam. Seems like it drew inspiration from that song.

No.  As I stated in the original post, I am not.
