Kevin Durant may not be playing this season (much like everyone else in the NBA at the moment), but the Brooklyn Nets forward is favored to win the “NBA 2K20” tournament.
As you know, the NBA is on hold for the foreseeable after future after Utah Jazz star Rudy Gobert tested positive for COVID-19. The virus has swept the globe, and the sports world came to a halt as healthcare professionals work to get the pandemic under control.
It promoted the league to get creative and start the “NBA 2K20” players-only tournament that will air on ESPN beginning Friday.
The tournament will feature 16 players and last 10 days. And with the players confirmed, it only made sense that oddsmakers would compile the odds for the tournament.
Durant, who is rehabbing a torn Achilles, is leading the way at +500 to win it all.
Here’s the full bracket:
