With the NBA 2K League’s fourth season quickly approaching, I put together a new series called ‘NBA 2K League Season Four Guides’. I’ll be going team-by-team, providing key information and offseason news, along with statistics, highlights, and storylines. In addition to this post, I teamed up with Strider Visuals to turn these ‘guides’ into videos, which can be found here and at the bottom of this article.

New Era In Cleveland
At the very beginning of the offseason, Cleveland’s front office pulled off a trade to acquire former Celtics Crossover Gaming franchise point guard, oFab. Fab, the second-ever draft selection in the history of the league is already by far the best lead-guard in the history of Cavs Legion GC. The roster is rounded out with 2019 Defensive Player of the Year, Godddof2K, shooting guard Strainer, who will be entering his third season with the team, and recent draft selections DLaw, Mario, and BigRim.
DLaw, the team’s first-round pick, is a two-way forward, expected to start at power forward to begin the season, but offers versatility in the frontcourt if needed. Mario, the NBA 2K League’s first-ever Spaniard draft-selection, projects to be Cleveland’s opening night starting center. Mario makes his long-awaited league debut in season four. Last but not least, we have BigRim, Knicks Gaming’s early second-round selection in 2020. BigRim brings more versatility in the frontcourt, along with a year’s worth of NBA 2K League experience.
All in all, this Cleveland roster features four new players for the upcoming season. Moving on from oLarry, AllHailTray, Doza, and JoshJay, Cavs Legion GC ushers in a new era headlined by superstar oFab. Fab and co. look to start fresh after a disappointing season three, and will do so with a backcourt that combined to score nearly 60 points (57.2) per contest last year (Fab; 34.8 and Strainer; 22.4).
