Checkpoint XP

At first, Albano “oFab” Thomallari’s parents didn’t understand him playing video games all the time, but when oFab was picked number 2 overall in the NBA 2K League in 2018, his parents couldn’t be any more prouder.

oFab joined Checkpoint XP and discusses how his parents continue to support him in the NBA 2K League and how his team, Celtics Crossover Gaming, changed his life. oFab also reveals that being in the NBA 2K League is not much different from the NBA.
