Blazer5 Gaming announced today that three players have been protected from the upcoming NBA 2K League expansion draft. OneWildWalnut, Mama Im Dat Man, and Lavish Phenom will be unavailable for the league’s expansion team, Hornets Venom GT, to select in the offseason. Last season, Blazer5 protected OneWildWalnut and Mama Im Dat Man from the expansion draft, and retained Lavish Phenom after he was unclaimed in the expansion draft.
With the announcement, Blazer5 retains the league’s MVPs from the first two seasons as well as one of the best defenders in the league last season. Last year, Mama Im Dat Man averaged 23.1 points and 11.6 assists per game en route to the league’s Most Valuable Player award. OneWildWalnut followed up his season 1 MVP campaign by averaging 15.1 points and 12.6 rebounds per game in season 2. Lavish Phenom improved his game and became one of the best one-on-one defenders in the league in season 2. The trio returns as the most successful regular season team in NBA 2K League history, with league-leading stats in points per game and wins.
