I love basketball. The energy and excitement that comes with a great game can rival that of a sellout concert. Speaking of music, the greatest songs usually gain notoriety with events or things that add to the overall art (music videos, movies, etc.).

That said, below I listed 10 songs (in no particular order) from NBA 2K that have found a way onto my streaming playlist. These songs are either from NBA 2K20 or 2K21 as I didn’t want to go too far back. However, I highly recommend you listen to the playlists of all the NBA 2K games.

Cold – Boy in Space & unheard (NBA 2K21)
