The Official NBA 2K League Podcast Episode 8: Splashy aka Mr. Popular
The NBA 2K League isn't a popularity contest. If it was, Splashy would have won multiple championships. But, while loved by many, and despite trading in his signature sense of humor for trash talk during his Season 4 postseason run...he can only boast of a second place finish in the Finals. Now, his team - Jazz Gaming - is one of the teams to beat during Season 5...if not "the" team. Can he get them over the hump?
S2 E7 ShiftyKaii Keeps Going
ShiftyKaii's NBA 2K League career has been defined by his ability to keep pushing. When he didn't make the draft pool Season 2, he grinded...and was eventually chosen 5th overall in the Season 3 Draft. When he didn't shoot the rock as well as some thought he should've and was subsequently traded after Season 3, he grinded. Come Season 4, he earned himself an NBA 2K League MVP nomination, as well as the very first All Star Game MVP trophy. He's a walking testament to the mantra...Never give up.
S2 E6 Dayfri Goes Back-to-Back
Dayfri's first two seasons in the NBA 2K League were tumultuous.

Now, after back-to-back championships and multiple MVP nominations, he's solidified his standing as a star in the League. In this episode, he takes us through his journey...one full of adversity and strength...on his way to achieving NBA 2K League history.
