Most of y’all know that NBA 2k will debut an esports league that is going to be operated by the NBA for NBA 2k18. The esports league will consist of participating NBA teams having 5 players (us gamers) that they will draft and play for that NBA team. It’s been said that the league will run just like a NBA season and also have playoffs and a NBA Finals as well. All of this sounds real dope for the 2k franchise and im very excited about this new feature.
Now, I have some speculations about how 2k and the NBA will go about operating this league. My main concern is what will be the qualifications to even get yourself in the draft pool ? Do you have to be in the top rankings of MyPark to be considered in the draft ? Will they look at your ProAm record and stats to be eligible for the draft ? We will know in due time I guess. This leads to my next question, will you be playing with the NBA player of that team ? Or will you be playing with your own player ? I’m praying we get to play with our own player. I mean who really wants to play with anyone on the Brooklyn Nets team for a whole season. Now as far as the league goes, will the selected players be playing 82 games like a real NBA season? Will it be where you have to go to a specific location or like a game studio to play your scheduled games, or will you be playing from home ? There is a lot of answers we are seeking about this esports league that we shall know in due time.
With this new feature coming into 2k, will this be a feature for now and the upcoming years for 2k ? I really hope so. It’s been said that the players that will be in the league will be getting paid to play those games. I know we all want to know will it be by salary or hourly and how much lol ? If this league feature is in it for the long run, how do y’all think this will effect the future of not just 2k, but even the how we go about playing 2k. Will you be the casual 2k gamer that will play the game just to enjoy the existing features and modes of the game ? Will you be more of a competitive 2k gamer that will go into every future 2k game trying to be one of the players that gets to participate in the esports league? We will see.
