Mykel Wilson on facing former team Grizz Gaming

The young NBA 2K League season continues to march onwards but Mykel Wilson is ready to face his former team once again.

Classified as a journeyman, Mykel Wilson (known as KEL), has been on three teams in his two years of playing professionally in the NBA 2K League. He’s looking forward to facing Vandi (Zach Vandivier) as they are friends and former roommates.

“I’m anticipating playing Vandi,” Wilson said. “That was one of my close friends on the Grizz. We were roommates and it’s going to be fun playing him. We were kinda like a duo at one point. Things didn’t work out to where I could be brought back and it’s going to be fun playing him.”

He’s not mad about it. And even likes playing with BP as one of the top point guards in the game. But how can he replicate a 23-point outburst as he had against the T-Wolves in week one?

Simply put, Wilson believes he could’ve had more that game.

“I feel like, sometimes I just miss,” Wilson said. “I go with bad takes or I miss open shots sometimes, every now and then. I feel like if I knock those down and make better decisions, I could easily have 30 plus this game.

“That’s not necessarily the goal for myself,” he continued. “I just want to get the win and get my teammates more involved.”

It’s apparent that Wilson has a chip on his shoulder when asked if he still has any loyalties to the teams of his past. But he doesn’t see himself being on any other team except for the Hawks Talon GC program and it’s evident.

“Honestly, I have no loyalties towards those other people. They didn’t have loyalty towards me when they didn’t retain me,” Wilson said flatly. “So, I want to be able to dog them and make sure they have no confidence going into their next game. That’s my goal, that’s my demeanor and attitude. When I play the Grizz I don’t want them to have confidence going into the next game. But they’re still my boys. Don’t get me wrong.”

Tune in Wednesday night for week two action of the NBA 2K League season at 7 p.m. between the Hawks Talon Gaming Club and Grizz Gaming. These games will be live-streamed on the league’s Twitch and YouTube channels.
