The NBA 2K series. NBA 2K is a basketball simulation game. Unlike GTA this game has been built for online competitive play (eSports) and makes it a very important game to discuss for the gambling and eSport crossover.
It is the first ever game that has an eSport league owned jointly by a main stream sports league. NBA owes 50 percent of the NBA 2K eSport league. Its fast popularity among the eSports audience has already attracted main eSport operators (Betway, Bet365, Pinnacle, GG.bet, unikrn etc) to offer online eSport betting for NBA2K matches.
