The first week of competition in the highly anticipated NBA 2K League has been released with a collection of high profile matchups.

After it was originally announced, the NBA 2K League has gained a substantial amount of traction throughout the gaming and sports communities for its ability to bring the two together in a one-of-a-kind fashion.


A total of 17 teams will take part in the inaugural, 17 week season, and have backing from some of the most recognized NBA organizations such as the Boston Celtics, Golden State Warriors, Cleveland Cavaliers, and many more.

An official draft was held at the Hulu Theater at the Madison Square Garden in New York City, with 102 of the best NBA 2K players in the world being chosen out of tens-of-thousands of hopefuls.


Following the completion of the ‘Tip Off’ tournament which saw the 76ERS GC walk away with the victory and $35,000 out of the $100k prize pool, the first week of NBA 2K League competition is set to begin on Friday, May 11th with three matches, followed by seven matches on Saturday, May 12th.

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.
