Rise to Stardom
Being interested in basketball, TDPresents started going to college with the aim to become a full-time basketball player. But that took a backseat when the popularity of his YouTube channel ‘TDPresents’ started gaining traction. He started his channel on May 27, 2013, posting videos of ‘NBA 2K13’ and ‘NBA 2K14’ gameplay. Like many others, getting views initially was a struggle for him on the overcrowded platform for YouTube gamers. What made him stand out from others was his focus on just the ‘NBA 2K’ gameplay. This became clear as ‘NBA 2K14 VC Glitch! Fastest & Quickest Way To Earn Unlimited VC!!’ was one his earliest videos to get over 200k views. Following that, however, most of his videos were getting nowhere close to even 10k views. His YouTube viewership changed for the better as soon as TDPresents started playing ‘Madden NFL 15’ as well. ‘Madden 15 Ultimate Team - BEST All Pro Pack Opening! Elite Pulls! MUT 15’ received more than 24k views.
While the growth of his channel has been slow, TDPresents came into the forefront after starting to collaborate and live with Twitch gamers and YouTube stars like TTG, JesserTheLazer, and Kristopher London. Together they were part of the ‘2Hype’ or ‘2K’ house. He himself started live streaming on Twitch and gained over 20k followers. ‘My Best Draft! Blind Draft & Play! Madden 16 Draft Champions vs Lostnunbound’ published in collaboration with YouTuber, Lostnunbound, became one of the early videos on his channel to get over 800k views.
‘Omggg!! Greatest NBA 2K17 Pack Opening You'll Ever See!’ published on September 16, 2016, became the first video on his channel to accumulate over 1 million views. The ‘Most Likely To.. With The House!’ challenge video in which he collaborated with his 2K house roommates and ‘99 Overall Draft Champions! Best Rounds Ever? Madden 16 Ultimate Team’ published in 2017, are two of the most popular videos on his channel with over 1.5 million views each.
Wanting to separate his gameplay videos from other videos like vlogs and fun challenges led him to create his second channel named ‘TD’ on July 1, 2017. The channel also enjoys more than 240k subscribers. ‘T Rex Basketball Obstacle Course’ *Funny*’ is one of the more popular videos on the channel.
