During the current suspension of the 2019-20 NBA season that initially saw a record 48 primetime games scheduled in Europe on Saturdays and Sundays, Belgium National team goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois will host a weekly series of NBA2K20 games against different European sports personalities, celebrities and influencers as a part of the #NBATogether initiative.
In ‘NBA2K Sundays with Thibaut Courtois’ the Real Madrid goalkeeper will play a scheduled #NBASundays presented by NBA2K20 game broadcast on Thibaut Courtois’ Twitch channel and promoted on NBA Europe social media platforms. In the first head-to-head that will be broadcast tonight, Courtois, representing the Milwaukee Bucks plays against German National football team and Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels, playing as the Dallas Mavericks.
Ahead of the game, Courtois commented: “I am a huge NBA fan and love playing NBA2K and at times like these, we need to stay together and keep ourselves entertained. Taking on Mats Hummels in the first #TakeOnThibaut will be great fun. I will play as the Bucks and Mats as the Mavericks, two teams featuring the leagues’ most exciting young players in Giannis Antetokounmpo and Luka Doncic. It is great to see the impact of European players in the league, and both players were in the midst of great seasons. I had Giannis in full MVP-mode and Mats was relying on Luka to carry the Mavs. Tune-in tonight at 8.00PM (BST) to find out who wins!”
