Team Logos Revealed: Part II
We’re excited to release the next six official team logos for the NBA 2K League: Wizards District Gaming, Magic Gaming, Heat Check Gaming, Jazz Gaming, Celtics Gaming, and Blazer5 Gaming. The team logos were developed in consultation with RARE Design out of Hattiesburg, Mississippi, who collaborated with each team on their respective brand.
Wizards District Gaming
The identity for Wizards District Gaming draws inspiration from the Washington Wizards’ brand. Fans and supporters will quickly recognize a commitment to the city through both the incorporation of “District” into the formal name, as well as the three stars that pay homage to the District of Columbia flag. The “Monumental” spaces reflect the inclusion into the larger MSE family, while paying tribute to the Washington Monument, a prominent feature of the DC skyline. The logo also encompasses key values that are important to the overall MSE brand, including a community-first approach, inclusivity and technological innovation. The logo provides fans with a new, yet familiar way to experience Monumental’s newest franchise.
The Magic Gaming logo incorporates elements from the NBA Magic team’s logo, including the identifiable colors of Magic Black and Magic Silver and the iconic basketball, while providing an edgier, more mysterious feel that captures the essence and identity of the NBA 2K League team. The color black, primarily featured, conveys a sense of strength and power. This modernized and innovative look also includes Magic Gaming’s secondary logo featuring the iconic star.
Heat Check Gaming

The primary icon and global logos, which pay tribute to the Jazz as well as the state of Utah, feature the letter “U” in the color white in the shape of the state of Utah. It is tilted at 66 degrees, with the drop shadow forming the letter “J” in gold and outlined in navy. The secondary logo features "Jazz Gaming" with a beamed pair of eighth notes in place of the "A" in Jazz.
Tradition defined. Few clubs — very few — have a tradition or a heritage that run as deep as ours. Celtic pride isn’t just a mantra, it’s a way of life. Green isn’t just our color, it’s our lifeblood. And winning isn’t just a hope, it’s our heritage.

The new Blazer5 Gaming logo draws its inspiration from the Trail Blazers iconic pinwheel design. The logo makes use of the franchise’s red, black, and white color palette, melding the classic five-on-five swirl into two energetic interlocking blocks. The result captures the inherent action of the original logo, while representing both the individual and team aspects of the competitive esports world.
The response to the logos has been overwhelming and we're grateful to our community for your support - keep an eye out on our Twitter handle @NBA2KLeague as there is more to come!
