The inaugural tournament for the NBA 2K League is now complete, as the seventeen league teams battled it out for their share of the $100,000 prize pool.

As the first tournament, it was aptly names ‘The Tipoff’, and gave the world its first glimpse into the NBA sponsored official esports league for 2K.


The teams were split into groups, and following group play entered the bracket stage, or playoffs, where there was $100,000 in prize money up for grabs.

With each team fielding six man rosters, this was a major opportunity for these pro players to settle in an established league – and make a name for themselves.


After five days of matches, a victor has now been crowned, with the 76ers Gaming Club taking the top spot, after winning the grand final over Blazer5 Gaming.

The 76ers roster walked away with the lion’s share of the prize money – $35,000 – while Blazer5 still netted themselves a very neat pay packet at $25,000.

Sony has revealed the next installment of its hit basketball series, NBA 2k21, will be launching in Fall 2020.

The pre-alpha footage was incredibly brief but basketball fans got to see how the new character models and lighting would look in NBA 2K21.


Last year’s installment was plagued by various bugs and gameplay issues, but this new title looks like the upgrade fans have been asking for.

The trailer showcases New Orleans Pelicans, Zion Williamson warming up and shooting some hoops. His player model looks incredibly realistic and individual beads of sweat can even be seen dripping from his brow as he dribbles his way around the court.


Rays of sunlight also seem to be casting soft shadows across the stadium, suggesting that dynamic lighting may also be present in this new title.

While we may not have much to go on yet, it’s certainly clear that 2K21 has never looked this good. Fortunately, fans won’t have to wait all that long for the game’s release as 2K21 will be releasing Fall 2020.

We definitely can’t wait to start making those all-important slam dunks, and we’ll be updating you when we hear more news, so make sure you stay tuned for all the latest info.
