As in the real deal NBA, who are partnering with Take-Two (publishers of the NBa 2K series) to create a new professional gaming league aimed at bringing together all the great basketball gamers from across the globe to compete in Virtual B-Ball. According to the press release the new NBA 2K eLeague will be "the first official eSports league operated by a U.S. professional sports league."

It gets even crazier.
Set to debut in 2018, this ground-breaking competitive gaming league will consist of teams operated by actual NBA franchises.  The founding teams, each composed of five professional eSports players who will play the game as user-created avatars, will be announced in the coming months.  The NBA 2K eLeague will follow a professional sports league format: competing head-to-head throughout a regular season, participating in a bracketed playoff system, and concluding with a championship matchup.


Admittedly that does sound pretty awesome, especially if you're a fan of the sport and NBA games in general.
