To celebrate the 2019 NBA 2K League finals, the league held their annual showcase, a tournament featuring professional NBA 2K League players and influencers from the worlds of sports and entertainment.

Taking place in Long Island City, New York, the event featured a four-game, single-elimination tournament with four teams (each consisting of five players) being coached by NBA 2K league players BearDaBeast (T-Wolves Gaming), NateKahl (NetsGC), Ramo (Pacers Gaming), and Rando (Hawks Talon GC).

As teams got eliminated, the remaining squad had to take on the winners from last years finals, Team IAmAdamThe1st. After many close games, it was Team BearDaBeast featuring GirlGamerChas, Jeremy Maclin, Jeremy Jones, and Lou Got Cash who came out victorious.

Highsnobiety was on the floor for all the hoop action talking with gamers and influencers alike. We sat down with the recent NBA 2K league champion and finals MVP, BearDaBeast, to discuss preparing for the league finals, a bit of smack talking, and more.

We also caught up with Ronnie2K, the Digital Marketing Director for the NBA 2K video game, who's known for being the first to share player ratings for upcoming 2K titles. In the video above, Ronnie dives into the the fifteen fashion brands that will be including in the upcoming NBA 2K20, including Don C, Grungy Gentleman, and more. He also details the new dynamic music system being implemented in the game, which allow them to keep updating the list of 40-50 tracks with new and fresh songs.

Finally, we spoke with stylist, model, and art director, Bloody Osiris, who unfortunately didn't get the big win for Team NateKahl. He chopped it up with Highsnobiety's Brian Farmer about the excitement surrounding the NBA 2K League championship, being a gamer, and getting scanned into NBA 2K20.
