Kings Guard Gaming Turns in Strong Showings in Preseason Play

Although the beginning of the 2020 NBA 2K Season has been delayed, Kings Guard Gaming had the opportunity to give a sneak peek into what the new-look squad is capable of.

In the first ever Coast to Coast Cup, KGG competed in a round-robin tournament with Warriors Gaming Squad and new expansion teams Hornets Venom GT and the Gen.G Tigers of Shanghai.

Sacramento went a perfect 8-0 in the friendly competition, sweeping its way to 1st place in the tourney.

The following week, every NBA 2K League team competed in the inaugural Three for All Showdown โ€“ which also featured a collection of fan-assembled 3-on-3 teams. Instead of the usual Pro-Am setting, these contests took place on the blacktop courts of the Neighborhood.

Each console (Xbox and Playstation) had separate brackets and Kings Guardโ€™s members were split up with Bash, Seemo, and Dat Boy Shotz making up the Xbox team and Nasthetic, Crush, and Yusuf_Scarbz on Playstation.

In the first round of the Playstation bracket, the KGG squad would unfortunately fall 2-0 in the best of three series to the eventual champion Huh Nation.

The Xbox squad would make a deeper run on their side of things, going undefeated en route to a matchup in the final round with Blazer5 Gaming.

Despite a hard-fought battle, Sacramento came up short of claiming yet another preseason title after falling 3-1 in the best of five series.

This capped off a notable stretch of play for a Kings Guard team that features three fresh faces on the roster. Though itโ€™s still currently unclear when the 2020 campaign will officially be underway, this early preview provided plenty of reasons to be excited for Sacramento fans.
