We continue our NBA 2K League offseason 2020 Draft prospect series by speaking with New York native, Mohammed "Mo" Hussain.

This gamer fills us in on how a couple of setbacks at the NBA 2K League combines will propel him to the league soon..

Get to know more about this NBA 2K League prospect.

Jeff: After a few tries at the combines only to come up short, why will this time be different for you at the combines?

Mo: After not making the league two years in a row, I decided that it will be best to show teams my versatility 2-5 as well as play every game as cool, calm and collected as possible. I'm also going to keep my team on the same page at all times during the game, making sure that we make adjustments when needed and help each other out on defense.

Jeff: How do you deal with the toxicity that surfaces at time in the NBA 2K League community?

Mo: Toxic comments may be made about you or your teammates but for me it is best to focus in on what matters the most in the 2K League, to win the championship.

Jeff: Who is one player or coach you look up to in the NBA 2K League?

Mo: One player I look up to in the 2K League is Pacers Gaming's Ramo. His composure and skill is unmatched when he's locked in. His trash talking is also one of the best in the 2K League. It can throw the other team off and give his team energy and momentum. Win or lose, Ramo has trust in his teammates.

Jeff: Explain why you deserve to get picked in the 2020 NBA 2K League Draft should you make it to the draft pool.

Mo: This year I will be competing in all possible tourneys to get as much exposure that I can. It is important to prove to coaches that you can compete with the best of the best. I believe that my "stick" skill and IQ is one of the best at the game.

I'm also a great teammate on and off the court. Chemistry and growth with your potential teammates, coach and staff is just as important as how you perform on that stage.
