The NBA 2K League is a professional esports league co-founded by the NBA and Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc.
On Tuesday, the official logo of the NBA 2K League was revealed.
The NBA 2K League logo incorporates the colors and shape of the NBA logo and the font of the NBA 2K logo. Absent is a human silhouette, which speaks to the inclusive nature of the league and the opportunity for any type of player to try out – young or old, male or female, based domestically or abroad.
A basketball was selected as the centerpiece of the design as it represents the common thread between all NBA 2K players.
The logos of the 17 teams will be unveiled later this week.
Launching in 2018, the league will feature the best NBA 2K players in the world. Each of the league’s 17 teams will draft gamers to compete as unique characters in 5-on-5 play against the other teams in a mix of regular-season games, tournaments and playoffs.
The league will host tryouts in early 2018, followed by a draft in March and the season tip-off in May.
