Jyden Named NBA 2K Player of the Week

By Kristian Cuaresma

For the second time this season, a NetsGC shooting guard has guided his team to an undefeated record en route to NBA 2K League Player of the Week honors.

Jyden “Jyden” McBath-Spencer officially won the award after averaging 14.2 points and 2.3 assists, while shooting 73 percent from the field. He also set a 3v3 career-high in points (20) against Green Beanz in game three, before breaking his own record in game four with 22 points. The rookie has accounted for over 66 percent of his team’s total points.

Just one week into his tenure in Brooklyn, Jyden has led his new teammates to unprecedented territory. NetsGC has an undefeated 3-0 series record and is 9-3 overall. In the prior 3v3 tournament, Brooklyn finished 2-4 with an 11-13 overall record, and failed to reach bracket play.

Selected No.35 in the 2022 NBA 2K League draft, Jyden was selected to play shooting guard in 5v5 but has found success in the 3v3 format as the lead ball-handler. This is the first time he has won an NBA 2K League award.

On June 2, NetsGC acquired Jyden from Cavs Legion GC in exchange for Doc and Brooklyn’s 2023 second-round pick. The transaction also included Cleveland sending Milwaukee’s 2023 first-rounder to Brooklyn. Doc had won Season Five’s first Player of the Week award.

The Player of the Week is decided by league administrators, team officials and a fan vote.

Jyden can next be seen tonight at 10:00 p.m. ET, when NetsGC puts its undefeated record on the line in a rematch against group rival Grizz Gaming
