DALLAS, TX—Mavs Gaming, the official name of the Dallas NBA 2K League team, one of 17 teams set to compete and participate in the inaugural season of the league, released its official name, logo, word mark and social media channels today.

The NBA 2K League, a joint venture between the NBA and Take-Two Interactive, is a professional eSports league featuring the best 2K players in the world.  NBA 2K is a video basketball simulation game with gameplay that simulates a typical game of basketball.  Mavs Gaming will field a team of five players who will be selected from a pool of the world’s best gamers via the League Draft held in March.

RARE Design, based in Hattiesburg, MS, collaborated with each team on their identity, aiming to tell the story of their respective legacies, and specifically for Mavs Gaming, finding the true meaning of what makes a modern Maverick.

“We wanted a symbol that was unexpected, fearless, with a swagger that is rooted in our Dallas heritage,” said Dallas Mavericks and Mavs Gaming owner Mark Cuban.  “We are confident that whomever we draft for our team will be proud to wear it.”
