Drake Appears in New NBA Video Game Commercial
Rapper de jour Drake appears in the new ad for NBA 2K12, which also features Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, and fans of the Boston Celtics, New York Knicks, Los Angeles Lakers, and Portland Trail Blazers debating which was the greatest team of all time.

Today’s Miami Heat plays above the rim. Larry Bird couldn’t even reach the rim,” argues Drake.

“South Beach is king,” he later interjects, making reference to the Chris Bosh-led Heat.

“Larry Bird laid it up like a real man,” states Brian Wilson of the San Francisco Giants, clad as Bird himself.

There is a quick cut to Mark Cuban holding his Larry O’Brian Championship Trophy (awarded to the winner of the NBA finals, lest you didn’t know), merely shaking his head.

Jordon defends his ’96 Bulls stating, “ I let my ring do the talking.”

NBA 2K12 will launch on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 on October 4th.
