Cuban was out in NYC when our photog asked him a question that is strangely intriguing when you think about it … how does Cuban shop for groceries. If you think he grabs his basket and heads to Albertson’s you’re wrong … but if you think he doesn’t do his own shopping, you’re also wrong. Here’s a hint … he’s making a guy richer than him even richer.
Much like the NBA, the NBA 2K eLeague will feature head-to-head competition between its 17 teams and an extended schedule that includes a regular season, bracketed playoff system and championship matchup. But instead of Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum and the rest of the Blazers’ starting lineup, five yet-to-be-determined professional eSports players will don virtual red and black uniforms featuring the Blazers’ iconic pinwheel logo.
This competition will not only be broadcast live, most likely on the video-streaming site Twitch, but also played in front of live crowds. By jumping into the next layer of sports and gaming competition — one that extends beyond the boundaries of the traditional sports landscape — the NBA hopes to broaden its appeal to a new segment of fans that might not ordinarily be drawn to basketball.
