It's not one of the WORST renditions of the 'Star Spangled Banner' I've ever heard, but DARIUS RUCKER kinda botched the National Anthem before Game Five of the NBA Finals between the Heat and the Spurs last night.

He was off key from the start, and it just seemed sort of lackluster. Then he had trouble with the high note at the end.  I guess I just expected more from Darius.  If he can kill Prince's 'Purple Rain,' you'd think the National Anthem would be a piece of cake.  Take a listen and judge for yourself.

Now listen to Purple Rain.
