With millions of players ready to watch people play League of Legends or football, the main players in the entertainment industry see the business opportunity for an exciting gaming interesting. Earlier this month, the NBA announced a partnership with two interactive take, the developer of the famous franchise NBA2K, to create a gaming league and one of a kind. This new competition in professional games, known as the "NBA 2K league" is the first-run major sports events organization of the United States when it begins in 2018.
