X Ambassadors will perform live at the NBA 2K League studio in Long Island City on the second day of the league’s Tipoff tournament, the league announced Monday.
The band partnered with the NBA 2K League to produce “Boom,” the promotional video and song for the second season of the league. As part of the campaign, X Ambassadors will perform “BOOM” live for the studio audience and fans watching on Twitch starting at 4:45 p.m. ET. “BOOM” debuted in January 2019 and was also selected for NBA primetime games on ABC.
The league also announced two guest commentators during the Tipoff Tournament. NBA 2K Community Manager and social media star Ronnie 2K will serve as a guest commentator alongside studio host Phil Visu on April 2, the first day of the tournament. Ronnie 2K played in the NBA 2K League Showcase, the league’s celebrity all-star game, in 2018, and has appeared as a guest at previous NBA 2K League drafts. Comedian Sarah Tiana will appear as a guest commentator on April 5 for the final group play in the first round of the tournament.
