In yet another reveal on a day chock-full of them, Pacers Gaming unleashed its official logo for the NBA 2K League in a video posted to their Facebook page.
The video started with a look at the process of the logo’s creation from RARE Design and continued with remarks from Senior Vice President of Pacers Sports & Entertainment Kelly Krauskopf and Pacers Director of Esports Operations Cody Parrent. It also included a trailer with footage from NBA 2K18 and from the Pacers Gaming Event held at Game On Esports Center in Westfield, IN on Nov. 19.
“Boomer, the Pacers Panther mascot, is part of our heritage and symbolizes confidence, courage, and power,” Parrent tells DIMER. “This new modernized version of the Pacers Panther is also sleek, confident, sly, and ready to pounce. We’re proud, we’re confident, and we know the game of basketball better than anyone else.
This is Indiana. This is Pacers Gaming.”
“We’ve been working on this for a long time,” Krauskopf said in the video. “We are excited to be a part of this inaugural season, be a part of the esports community.”
“It’s a great opportunity for our franchise to be involved. Esports is an exponentially growing industry, so the time is now to get involved,” said Parrent in the video.
