Brooklyn was one of four NBA franchises to join the NBA 2K League as expansion teams for the 2019 season, alongside Minnesota, Los Angeles (Lakers), and Atlanta.
The Nets hired Ivan Curtiss, of MPBA fame, as their NBA 2K advisor, and also brought on Nick Gartrelle to aid in the expansion draft process. The team selected NBA 2K League Finals MVP Nate Kahl and former Pacers Gaming big man Shockey, “Mr. 103” with the second and seventh picks of the expansion draft, respectively.
“This logo reveal is the first step in hopefully a long and successful journey here in Brooklyn,” Kahl said. “We’re beginning something special over here, and this logo is great representation of Brooklyn’s grit and resolve, the defining characteristics of our team.”
“The combination of the historic Brooklyn Bridge and a basketball net in the NetsGC logo showcases how the sky is the limit for basketball esports,” Balogun Jr. (Shockey) said. “We’re excited about this moment and look forward to competing in the upcoming NBA 2K League season.”
Hawks Talon GC, Atlanta’s affiliate, revealed their logos and branding identity shortly after naming Wesley Acuff their team manager and head coach.
T-Wolves Gaming and Lakers Gaming have not yet released their logos. Each team must submit their logos to the NBA 2K League for approval before officially revealing them.
