Bid Description

On a Saturday night in Manhattan's Terminal 5, the air resembles that of a awards series. Cameramen and flashing bulbs lineup a red carpet as they walk by. A line of spectators waits to be granted entrance to an event promised to NBA 2K MT feature celebrities, musical guests and the best in the world at their craft being acknowledged. This is not the Oscar's, Emmy's or Grammy's. It's the 2020 NBA 2K League Draft. The evening has all the makings of the leagues.

The place, one that's featured performances by the likes of Jay-Z and Snoop Dogg in the past few decades, sets the point; NBA 2K players who spend most of their lives in relative anonymity are, for tonight, transformed into full-on celebrities. "There are over 50 million NBA 2K players that play 2K in some way, shape or form," said Brendan Donohue, NBA 2K League Managing Director. "We're ending up with the best 100 NBA 2K players on earth, thus we want to create that NBA 2K player feels like he got to the highest mountaintop."

The initial pick is announced by washington Wizards owner Ted Leonsis. Knicks Gaming is selected for by former New York star Allan Houston. It is a watershed moment of types for NBA 2K as well as esports as an industry, a sign of how far a once-niche pursuit has arrived in only a couple of short years and a definite notice served this world is not going anyplace. And within just a few weeks, it will be shattered by a global crisis -- replaced with a wholly different reality, one shedding a completely new light on the relevance and significance of gaming in our contemporary world.

On an early April afternoon, Ronnie Singh is currently sitting in his bedroom.

Scheduled 2K League play, the bulk of which is typically run at a central studio place at New York, was closed down. NBA 2K players, like their NBA counterparts, began sequestering at home. It was surely an adjustment without traveling in four decades for Singh, who by his own admission had not gone more than 10 days. His attempts altered to a support function, both because of his team and for the NBA 2K players around the NBA with whom he's developed close relationships through time. He took advantage of  a opportunity to log a few more hours on the 2K sticks and then connect with the community.
