NBA 2K League set to tip off its esports season May 5

Basketball fans missing their live game action can at least look forward to some virtual competition as the 2020 NBA 2K League tips off next week. 

The esports league has announced its regular season will begin on Tuesday, May 5 with at least six weeks of remote gameplay. All 23 NBA 2K League teams will play games remotely from their local markets, with the games simulcast live on the 2K League’s Twitch and YouTube channels.

Four best-of-three matches are scheduled every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday night over the six-week period. Each series will count as a regular-season win or loss.

“We … hope the excitement of NBA 2K League competition provides both new and returning fans with a fun way to stay connected and engage with our league during these unprecedented times,” the league's managing director, Brendan Donohue, said in a statement Monday.
