NBA Planning NBA 2K Players-Only Tournament
It has been about 2 weeks since we have had sports on the television. We have all be watching highlights just to pass the time until sports come back. The NBA decided sports need to come back, but virtually!
“The NBA is planning a players-only NBA2K tournament that will feature the league’s sharpest video gamers and it will be broadcast on ESPN, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
The league hopes to launch the event Friday, with the tournament including some big-name players, sources said.
With the sports landscape on pause due to the coronavirus pandemic and the federal government extending the social-distancing measure to at least April 30, the league has been forced to evaluate the safest way to bring fans basketball some action.Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports
