This weekend saw NBA 2K action hit the Gfinity Arena in London for the first time, with Team TKTV (You Know The Vibes) claiming the victory.
NBA 2K League European Invitational
Four teams battled it out but eventually Team YKTV won all four of their final matches to capture the tournament title.
Point Guard Marcel Stohl (MGoCrzy) was named MVP, and it was well-deserved after finishing with 28 points and 10 assists in the final match of the day. He poured in 15 of the team’s 18 first-quarter points.
It was a pretty dominant display from the victorious side, and center Jordan Polverino made a strong case for MVP too with a double-double in the final game and terrific defense throughout the tournament.
Marcel Stohl’s MVP performance earned him a place in the Season 3 draft pool.
Prior to the tournament NBA 2K League Managing Director Brendan Donohue said, “We are excited to bring together the best NBA 2K players from across Europe for our first-ever European qualifying event.
“Building on the success of last season’s APAC Invitational, which identified several draft-eligible players from the AsiaPacific region, it is important for us to further strengthen our player pool by providing more opportunities for top international players to qualify for the 2020 NBA 2K League Draft.”
The tournament was live-streamed on both Twitch and YouTube, and held at the same venue as the recently concluded third season of Formula 1 esports.
There may only be a few positions on the NBA court, but point guard is widely considered to be the most specialised role is the sport, and having a top point guard is key to success on NBA 2K20.
As a rule, the point guard will see the ball more than any other player in a teams offense and will be instructed to call the plays are fire a pass or shot when the time is right.
