Be a studio analyst for the ELEAGUE
I had an chance to talk concerning the function that’s defined as live on the Twitch station, B/R Live and ELEAGUE of ELEAGUE on Friday afternoon on Twitch with Frye. You’re involved with an NBA 2K charity event during All-Star Weekend. Can you inform me about it? Who is involved and what charities would be the event’s beneficiaries? Sure. I’m going to be a studio analyst for the ELEAGUE NBA 2K Coins Throwdown. We’ll have four active NBA players who are going to be attracting some star power –both the LaVine, Gilgeous-Alexander, Gobert and Reddish — since they play in one elimination tournament.
The winner will earn a donation to the charity of his choice — the Atlanta Reddish is enjoying for Norristown Recreation Center, LaVine, Oklahoma City Gilgeous-Alexander, and Gobert are playing for their own causes. It is a fantastic opportunity to spend time and also to attempt to unite the two worlds of basketball and esports. I understand you’re a gamer as well. Tell me a bit about your experience with NBA 2K, and some of the games you like playing.
To date myself, but I’ve played with everything to Sonic the Hedgehog, to Sega Dreamcast and then the consoles that followed. Gaming is a way to be competitive, but to connect across the world and across platforms. I feel like gaming has brought me and created opportunities to gather people around and have fun. Whether it’s that the Wii, or somebody playing with Mario Kart, it’s just about having fun.
When you were active in the league, do you recall any of your teammates being good? Yes gamers. Back in the day, Malik Rose was good at Starcraft, exactly the same with Eddy Curry. Quentin Richardson is excellent in NBA 2K. J.R. Smith is a Call of Duty phenom. I would say almost everybody I played had a game. Gilbert Arenas and richard Jefferson are’Halo-heads.’ Every player I know has a game they perform during their spare time.
