PLAYOFF RACE: There are just three weeks of the regular season action remaining for teams to secure their place in the NBA 2K League Playoffs, which tip off Wednesday, August 19. Ten teams will make the playoffs: the nine teams with the best regular-season records and the winner of THE TICKET powered by AT&T, the third and final in-season tournament from August 13-15. With more than 15 teams mathematically alive in the playoff race, Week 10 is shaping up to be a pivotal week in the 2020 season.
DYNAMIC ROOKIES: Three rookies have been turning heads as they lead their teams in the chase for the 2020 NBA 2K League Playoffs. NetsGC point guard Josh “Choc” Humphries, the NBA 2K League Player of the Month for June, is averaging 29.2 points and an NBA 2K League-best 9.6 assists. On the heels of a game-winning basket against Jazz Gaming, Bucks Gaming point guard Reginald “Regg” Nash is averaging 33.5 points and 8.7 assists. The No. 4 overall selection in the 2020 NBA 2K League Draft delivered by Panera Bread, Dhwan “ShiftyKaii” White of the Gen.G Tigers of Shanghai, is averaging 31.2 points, 8.3 assists and 3.1 steals.
TURNING THE CORNER: After Week 10, the NBA 2K League’s second in-season tournament of the season, THE TURN powered by AT&T, will take place from Wednesday, July 22 through Saturday, July 25. THE TURN is one of three in-season tournaments (THE TIPOFF, THE TURN and THE TICKET) in which teams compete for banners that link together to form THE BANNER CHAIN powered by AT&T and prize money. Last season, THE TURN took place at HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas and was featured on an episode of “NBA 2K League: Locked In powered by AT&T.” Additional details about this year’s tournament will be announced in the coming days.
