The Game showed his sports appreciation by dropping the NBA 2K10 "Champion" tribute song for the upcoming video game last June.
"So amazing, undefeated, who can see him, who can beat him/Nobody, 'cause he's the champion/I'm a legend, I'm the greatest/Many tried but they couldn't fade me/She got me 'cause I'm the champion/Take my time and the victory will be mine/I reigned supreme, never dreamed about being nothing less/On the court in a jersey tangled inside the Nets/Pace yourself, start chasing the Bucks/If you can bypass the moon like a Rocket/Everything ain't pocket/D12 whistlin'/Chromed out engine/Oiled up Pistons, rough around the edge/Who got the Clippers, they do my fade Magic/Like Washington Wizards, so drop the top and spread my wings like a Hawk/Nuggets in my ear, spinnin' Spurs when you walk/One thing about me, never been all talk/Finish around the basket, half-man half-Maverick." ("NBA2K10")
Lil Wayne also released his NBA Finals-based tribute song "Kobe Bryant" earlier this summer.
"Kobe 'doin' work', 2-4 on my shirt," Weezy raps. "He the greatest on the court, and I'm the greatest on the verse....2-4 so nice, my flow so mean/Catch me at the game sittin' next to Goldstein/Kobe Bryant Nikes, purple, gold strings/Kobe in the game, homie you know who the team/'Black Mamba,' attack, conquer/basketball Weez, rap monster/cross over good, or turn around jumper/Or I'll just drive the lane and dunk on dunkers/You know where it's going, it's going down yo/This is the late show, but don't drown though/I call him King Bryant, not let the crown show." ("Kobe Bryant")
