NBA 2K Rumors
The NBA and Take-Two Interactive Software, makers of the mega-popular NBA 2K video game, are partnering to form a first-of-its-kind esports league centered around the NBA 2K series, officials from both companies told ESPN.com on Wednesday. The NBA 2K eLeague, tentatively set to begin play in 2018, eventually will feature 30 NBA 2K teams, each owned by one of the real-life NBA franchises, according to NBA commissioner Adam Silver and Strauss Zelnick, the CEO of Take-Two. The teams, comprised of five human players, will play out a five-month season that mirrors the real NBA season. It will proceed through a regular season of head-to-head games and then to playoffs and a championship matchup.
After an NBA tease in the initial Nintendo Switch reveal trailer, NBA 2K18 was shown as part of a sizzle reel during the Nintendo Switch reveal event live stream. No information was offered during the stream about NBA 2K18, but this sizzle reel, which included a number of other games, is the first official confirmation of the 2K18 iteration of the game, as well as which entry in the franchise will be appearing on Nintendo’s new system. According to Nintendo’s website, the game is projected for a September 2017 release.
“It was like NBA 2K numbers,” New York’s Brandon Jennings said, comparing Harden’s performance to the video game. “I just told him afterward to just go and get the MVP and keep balling and doing what he’s doing.”
And if Santa said, “Sorry, dude, I don’t do miracles”? Porzingis: [Laughs] Then I’d ask Santa to change my hair on NBA 2K. It’s pretty ugly. I understand I don’t have the greatest hair, but on 2K it looks terrible. Santa, please make them fix it!
