If you haven’t been paying attention, 2K has brought their NBA 2K franchise into the realm of eSports with their own tournament called Road to the Finals. It’s been underway for about four months now, and on Wednesday, it will all culminate with the championship final.
The tournament and the finals took place earlier this month on May 21, with 3 rounds deciding who will make it to the finals. Later that day, those teams competed for a chance to win it all on June 1st, for a chance at a whopping $250,000 reward and the opportunity to attend the NBA Finals. There’s a lot at stake!
The top two teams, HLZ and GFG, will be competing for the prize while 2K streams the event in its entirety on twitch and facebook. We’ll also have someone out there to cover the event, so you can look forward to that soon as well!
If you haven’t been watching, the guys over at 2K Sports have put together another great episode of NBA 2KTV. I’d recommend giving it a watch even if you’ve already watched the previous games, as it does a great job offering a recap, and also includes some interviews with players from the brackets. You can find that video below.
Will you be watching the Road to the Finals championship this week? Let us know in the comments or on social media, and as always, stay tuned to SGO for the latest news and info on NBA 2K16.
