Washington Mystics small forward Aerial Powers, LA Sparks guard Chelsea Gray, Las Vegas Aces guard Sugar Rodgers, Dallas Wings shooting guard Allisha Gray and Alexis Jones of the Atlanta Dream will be representing the WNBA.
Powers has shown off her NBA 2K skills before, defeating SBNation’s Matt Ellentuck in September after NBA 2K20, the first version of the game to include WNBA players, was released. The reigning WNBA champion and the rest of her WNBA counterparts have a tough task ahead of them in the Three For All Showdown.
The first stage of the tournament took place March 27-29 and consisted of fan-organized teams. Four teams from that competition made it to the second stage. Those fan teams will be grouped with the celebrity teams in this stage, which starts on Tuesday.
Powers, Jones and Allisha Gray will play together on the “Watch Us Work” team while Rodgers will team up with female 2K stars Aylessha Harvey and Brianna Novin on the “Sugar Icy Ballas” team. Chelsea Gray is on the “Raining Threes” squad with G League players Haywood Highsmith and Michael Bryson.
Beginning Tuesday, tournament games will tip off at 8 p.m. ET each night and live streamed on the NBA 2K League’s Twitch and YouTube channels.
