The NBA 2K players I know tend to be in career mode

  • The NBA 2K players I know tend to NBA 2K22 MT be in career mode, MyTeam (gathering players in an imaginary league) or online street basketball, so these three modes are the focus for this analysis.

    In the past, street basketball is somewhat different in comparison to indoor basketball. The reason is that you play 3-on-3 which means you have more space in the court, and partly because all opponents playing on the streets are controlled by human players, not by computers. Also, 2K prefers to give street basketball a more arcade experience.

    The game's matching is fantastic and generally you compete against teams that are pretty evenly in their match. Your player rating is not the most important aspect, but more how smart (or stupid) you are. It's painful to be paired with someone who isn't able to defend, but just likes to shoot three-pointers, however, you're bound to be in that.

    Street basketball is slightly more polished than last year's however, above all, it feels like you have more control over the actions of your player. In the past, you would be stuck in an animation which had to be played before you could continue. This isn't the case in 2K22.

    A variety of brand new game modes have been added to MyTeam. For example, online you can play the game MyTeam Draft, where you first have to NBA 2K Coins select some players you don't have on your list. This makes the game different one than it was previously.
