As part of a partnership between our friends at 2K (publisher of NBA 2K19), Project Backboard, and us at Xbox, we’re proud to announce today that the basketball court at the Salvation Army Siemon Family Youth & Community Center in Los Angeles has been renovated to help serve the community.
Back in September, 2K announced the establishment of 2K Foundations – a program dedicated to supporting underserved communities across the country by refurbishing basketball courts and promoting science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education programming for youth. Within its first year of operation, 2K Foundations, Microsoft, and Project Backboard have joined forces to renovate basketball courts and community learning centers in 12 U.S. cities including Cincinnati, Baltimore, Chicago, and Cleveland – with today’s court in Los Angeles being the latest. Microsoft is proud to partner with these incredible organizations to help outfit each location with new Xbox One S consoles and other equipment to help continue providing education to children in need.
While Xbox is grateful to be working with 2K Foundations and Project Backboard, we can’t do this alone! Starting today and ending December 14, we will be holding a contest to see who can create the best custom basketball court to be used in our next renovation.
Once you’ve designed your court, you can submit your design on Twitter to @NBA2K for a chance to win a variety of awesome prizes, including a custom Xbox One X console or two tickets to the 2019 NBA All-Star Game in Charlotte, North Carolina!

Good luck – we can’t wait to see your designs! And be sure to stay tuned to Xbox Wire for the latest NBA 2K news.
