GRAHAM “BLKFRANKWHITE” BORDEN SCHOLARSHIP

Graham “BLKFRANKWHITE” Borden grew up all over the great city of New York. He graduated from North Babylon High School in Long Island in 1997 and spent a few years at Syracuse University before coming home to receive his undergraduate degree from Suffolk County Community College. Some years later, he decided to embark on a career in creating content for YouTube & Twitch playing various video games, focusing on the NBA 2K franchise. As time went on, he saw a need for a competitive community for NBA2K players using MyTEAM. MyTEAM is a mode where you can take players like Shaq and play them alongside players like Magic Johnson and Vince Carter. Hence, he created a tournament series called Kings of Kings. This tournament brought out some of the best YouTubers and Twitch streamers in a battle to see who is the best. YouTubers that have participated in the Kings of Kings tournament include Jesserthelazer, Kris London, Cashnastygaming, Ipodkingcarter, and Nickthebullsfan. After being a longtime fan of the Pro-Am Scene in the NBA 2K franchise, Graham decided to collaborate with the new face of competitive ProAm, Jelani Mitchell (@2kCompgames), and create a groundbreaking debate show called First Shake that discusses all things NBA 2K. First Shake has led to them working directly with the NBA 2K League on their hit off-season show, The Post Up.
