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 – 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 Guard’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 it’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.
