NBA 2K League indefinitely disqualifies six players and a coach for violating gambling rules

Six players and a coach have been indefinitely disqualified from NBA 2K League’s activities for violating gambling and fantasy rules. The NBA 2K League is an official esports competition, a team effort of both the NBA and NBA 2K publishers Take-Two. 

An investigation found Christopher Lafanette, Dorian Earl Miller and Robert Nastasi of Blazer5 Gaming, Kimanni Ingram of Jazz Gaming and Zekirri Dennis of Mavs Gaming all wagered or attempted to wager on NBA 2K League games, either on their own or through other individuals, according to a statement released by the League. 

The five players also broke the rules by failing to report any violations or cooperate with the investigation. Blazer5 Gaming coach Andrew Maxie and player Marquis Gill were also barred from continuing with their participation.
