2K released their first-ever fully Tagalog video that merges basketball with local cultural phenomenon, FlipTop. What better way to settle the debate of which generation of NBA players is the best than to have a rap battle on the virtual courts of NBA 2K21. 

Two FlipTop legends, Loonie and Sinio, faced off online and had a rap battle led by Anygma. Using customized teams of their favourite players, they were spitting verses about which era of basketball is superior. Loonie represented the old school legends using Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and Larry Bird while Sinio represented the modern day Superstars using LeBron James, Stephen Curry and Giannis Antetokounmpo. 

NBA 2K21 brings the dream of matching up the best players of all time closer to life by allowing you to create your dream team of old school legends or modern day superstars in different game modes including Blacktop or MyTEAM – or battle against your friends as you go head to head online. You can even select from a range of team specific classic lineups, All-Decade and All-Time teams featuring some of the best players from past and present day.

NBA 2K21 is now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Windows PC  and is up to 50% off* for a limited time only. The game will also be playable starting December 11 on the PlayStation 5 when the console launches in the Philippines.

Watch the full video on the NBA 2K Facebook Page and 2K Asia YouTube page for more information and decide which era of basketball is superior.
