NBA 2K League: Top Players in Blocks in 2018 Season

There is a lot of value in a big man that can average more than 1.5 blocks per game. While the number doesn’t seem like much, the reality is that these players impact way more shots than the blocks alone. If an opponent is known for the block abilities, players are less likely to test the lane and a block can seriously change a game’s momentum.

Top Blocks Players in the League

Team: Blazer5 Gaming

Height: 7’1”

Blocks Averaged: 2.6

It’s no wonder that Dayne “Onewildwalnut” Downey won an MVP award and a Defensive Player of the Year award after leading the league in both rebounds and blocks. He was so dominant inside that he averaged half a block more than the second best blocks player. With averages of 21.1 points, 13.7 rebounds, 2.6 blocks and 1 steal per game, it’s easy to see why the club retained him for this upcoming season.

Tucker “TuckerLocksUp” Henry stayed true to his name this past season. Behind 2.1 blocks and 1.6 steals per game, Henry showed why he is considered a defensive specialist. Surprisingly, he was not retained by Pacers Gaming and is draft eligible for the 2019 season.

Boo Painter was the league’s leading scorer last season and a top blocks player as well. However, he will not be joining any teams during the 2019 season.
