Covid-19's Impact on NBA2K League Players (Part 4 of 5)
Written by: Boneman9000
To kick off Season 3 of the NBA 2K League, we linked up with players from multiple teams and across the country to see how they’ve been getting accustomed to being quarantined and remote play. We’re all different in the 2K community, so it was great to see how everyone reacted to the need to stay inside.
In this 5-part series, we get a behind the scenes look into the lives of Ramo (Pistons GT), TOXSIK (Magic Gaming), Lord BEEZUS (Jazz Gaming), Shuttles (Nets Gaming Crew), and oFAB (Celtics Crossover Gaming) to find out exactly how the Covid-19 pandemic has impacted them on both a personal and professional level.
We will also be asking the same questions to the 2K community, so make sure to keep an eye out on twitter (@Boneman9000) for your chance to give your input on the question of the day. It will be interesting to compare the community's answers to the NBA 2K League players.
How has the Coronavirus pandemic affected you and your team?
RAMO, Pistons GT
“It affected my team enormously because we were a team that meshing well with each other off the court and in practice. Now we home all day and don’t see each other. I basically feel like we still in the offseason in a way because we are still playing online.”
TOXSIK, Magic Gaming
“It’s taken a toll on all of us. We are stuck in the apartments 24/7, so if we’re having a bad day, we aren’t able to go out and get away from it all. It can become mentally taxing, but we’ve done our best to work around it.”
LORD BEEZUS, Jazz Gaming
“It's affected our team in a big way, to be honest since our practice facility is at the arena here in Utah. We've been unable to practice together as a team for quite some time now, so that's definitely tough when you want to stay on top of your game.”
SHUTTLES, Nets Gaming Crew
“I think like any other team, being constrained to the NetsGC house almost 24/7 has been tough. But we aren’t the only ones in the world going through it, so we make due of the situation.”
oFAB, Celtics Crossover Gaming
“Coronavirus hasn’t affected my team much. We can all go days or weeks without seeing each other and meet up later and are still close and cool like we never been apart. We truly have that brotherly connection, and we can go weeks and months without talking to each other. But we make sure we are scrimming and talking every day, and it’s business and fun as usual.”
Tomorrow we’ll come out with the fifth and final part of the series. We’ll also include how most people fared in today's poll, so be on the lookout for that.
