Raptors Uprising GC Finish the Regular Season Undefeated

For the first time in NBA 2K League history a team has completed the regular season undefeated. Raptors Uprising GC, NBA 2K League affiliate of the 2019 NBA champion Toronto Raptors, earned it by sweeping Cavs Legion GC.

“Congratulations to Raptors Uprising GC on their historic 2020 regular season. Not only are they the first NBA 2K League team to finish the regular season an undefeated 16-0, but they also won the first two tournaments of the season – THE TIPOFF and THE TURN powered by AT&T – and have their sights set on a championship,” said NBA 2K League Managing Director Brendan Donohue. “Their season is a testament to an amazing Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment (MLSE) organization that is committed to building a winning culture on the court and in the community.”

Raptors Uprising went undefeated through 27 matchups in all competitions, winning the two in-season tournaments along the way: THE TIPOFF and THE TURN powered by AT&T. In doing so, they became the first team in the league’s three-year history to capture the first two tournaments of the season, taking home USD $192,000 in prize money for their efforts.

The job isn’t finished. Following their undefeated regular season run, Raptors Uprising enter the 2020 NBA 2K League Playoffs as the No. 1 seed and earn a bye into the quarter-finals where they will face the winner of Hornets Venom GT (9-7) and NetsGC (8-8).

The 10-team playoffs, with USD $920,000 up for grabs, will tip off remotely Thursday, August 20 and culminate with a best-of-five 2020 NBA 2K League Finals on Saturday, August 29.

  1. still wait for the day that there is a team that actually plays something related to basketball. I bet if you look out for guys that are good at 2k AND understand basketball and build something with an actual gameplan besides "let everyone stand around and then the PG dribbles around" then this team will easily will win games.
