Who doesn’t like debating a list?
DIMER is pleased to present the Players to Watch list, compiled by two former NBA 2K League draft analysts. BeastAnk24 helped Wizards District Gaming draft MVP candidate Boo Painter and a playoff team, while XMK97 helped Cavs Legion GC draft a top-4 season-one team.
BeastAnk24 and XMK97 indicated several primary factors that influenced their composition of the list. The principal consideration was performances to date in NBA 2K19, specifically in Pro-Am mode as well as Team Up mode. Quick Match and MyTeam players who have not played team-centric modes were excluded; it’s far more difficult to project their capabilities in the 5-on-5 stage of the league. BeastAnk24 and XMK97 also factored in their consideration of how players would perform under pressure in the spotlight of the NBA 2K League stage.
No protected/retained players in the NBA 2K League are featured, and nor are any players under the age of 18.
The authors added:
“We’d like to start off by saying that these lists are honestly just for fun and to get people talking. The only list that matters as of right now is the draft pool. Good luck to everybody going for Season 2 and we hope you enjoy the Players to Watch list!”
The following rankings are in order.
