The NBA 2K League on ESPN witnessed its third season on 5th May. The season started with a delay because of the ongoing pandemic(COVID-19).
The NBA 2K League and the television network ESPN recently announced the broadcasting of the league games throughout the season. However, only the games played on Tuesday will be broadcasted on ESPN 2.

The rest of the matches played on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will be streamed on the ESPN app and on ESPN.com. The broadcast will also air in countries of the Caribbean region, Latin America, Oceania, and Sub-Saharan Africa. However, a piece of detailed telecast information for the entire season is yet to be revealed.
It will also air on Sports One and Sports NET Now in Canada on Tuesdays. Also, the broadcast of the games will continue on YouTube and Twitch.
All the 23 teams will be participating form their home markets. This season best of 3 matches will be played where a victory in the series will be counted as one. A team can play a maximum of 19 matches, with 14 league matches.
Previously, matches were played in the studios of New York City and it was all set to acquire a bigger studio for about 200 fans but fate has other plans. Still, we wish hopefully the season will be as intimidating as ever before.
The broadcast will be shifted between the ongoing matches so that none of us can miss those nail-biting moments.
We all see this as a great initiative by ESPN and the NBA 2K League in this time when the traditional sports are not available. The scarcity of the sports broadcasting content can easily be filled by these steps. It will also draw a really huge audience for this season.
Also, we wish that this initiative won't go away once other sport's telecast begins. See the original post by the official NBA site.
