Suns bring in Keenan Allen, Tony Jefferson for NBA 2K game


The Phoenix Suns will present their third NBA2K20 regular-season simulation stream on Friday night, and this time NFL athletes are involved.

Three-time NFL Pro Bowler and Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen will proverbially travel 14.3 miles from Dignity Health Sports Park to Staples Center to represent the Los Angeles Clippers in the video game contest against the Phoenix Suns. Allen also streams on Twitch, having played Madden 20, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and NBA2K for a live audience in the past month.

On the sticks for the Suns will be NFL free-agent safety Tony Jefferson, who most recently suited up for the Baltimore Ravens but played four seasons with the Arizona Cardinals from 2013 to 2016.

The Suns are currently undefeated at 2-0 in their NBA 2K season, which started soon after the NBA went on hiatus due to concerns over the coronavirus. In the most recent stream on Wednesday, Suns player Ty Jerome controlled the Suns to a 93-63 win over Josh Okogie’s Minnesota Timberwolves.
