There was a time, in the 2000s, when college basketball had its entire dedicated game, before being shelved to favor the series more closely related to the NBA. But since the successful NBA 2K series has existed it has never been possible to use a college player in the video game, complicit in the rules of the NCAA which prevented players from lending their image for commercial partnerships of any kind. Everything changed with the approval of the NIL, acronym for “Names, Images or Likeness”, which allows you to use your own name, image or likeness to make agreements. AND the first college player to finish in NBA 2K will be Paolo Banchero: the future player of the Italian national team, one of the candidates for the first overall choice of the 2022 Draft, yesterday announced its partnership with NBA 2K22, just on the occasion of the launch of the new video game with Luka Doncic on the cover. A revolutionary agreement in its own way, which is followed by Banchero’s entry into CAA, the United States’ most powerful entertainment player and artist agency. Banchero will thus have his own character in the video game and announced with a video on Instagram that he will create more content over the course of the season, which he will face with the Duke Blue Devils jersey in the last year on the bench of the legendary coach Mike Krzyzewski. And then, in June 2022, there is already an appointment fixed with the NBA Draft.
