Poll: Players Pick the NBA 2K League Team They Most Want to Join

The NBA 2K League draft is roughly two months away. We decided to have some fun and get a pulse of the 2K community on the team that players would most like to be selected by in the draft.

We polled over 50 NBA 2K League hopefuls, who provided an anonymous response with their choice of destination. Players had varying reasoning for their choices, with the most popular answers being proximity to home, favorite NBA franchise or current 2K League team management.

Here are the final results (total votes in parentheses):

Pistons GT (6) 

“Adam’s experience in esports and dedication to making a team great.”

“I’m from there. I live in Dallas now but will always rep the 313.”

“I’m from Michigan.”

Knicks Gaming (5)

“I grew up in Indy and I know how much of a passion basketball is here. I feel like the fans would support the 2K team just as much as the other teams we have.”

Cavs Legion GC (4)

“I think Anthony is a great manager and is light years ahead of every team except maybe the Pacers and Mavs.”

“The Cavs have been my favorite team, I hate to say it, but ever since LeBron went back and joined in 2014. I love the management, I love how smart they are and how they put the right people on the right team and build around there star instead of stacking a lot of stars on a team.
