Orlando's newest pro sports team set to take the virtual court in regular season debut

The newest professional sports team in Orlando has a dual identity.

Magic Gaming picked six players in the initial NBA 2K League Draft, but because they play a video game (NBA 2K 18), each player also has an avatar that takes the virtual court.

The team and the league are part of the fast growing world of professional eSports. Their games are live streamed on Twitch. Hundreds of thousands of viewers around the world watched the league's pre-season tournament.

Magic Gaming makes its regular season debut Friday, May 11 against Blazers Gaming.
