Visual Concepts’ NBA 2K24 is just-about ready to hit the court and basketball fans could be in for a treat; we don’t want to say anything too out of pocket before the NBA 2K24 release date, but this really could be one of the best sports games of the year. If you’re someone who wants to dive head-first into NBA 2K24 MyCAREER, you’ll be pleased to know we have our first proper look at the new NBA 2K24 MyPLAYER builder for you to check out.

We know NBA 2K24 doesn’t care a lot around PS4 and Xbox One, but it does care about giving you as much control as possible when it comes to building your MyPLAYER. So, it looks like 2K has let a few content creators show us what we’re in for and explain what’s going on. You’ll be pleased to know, there’s something quite interesting going on.

If you want to jump into the game faster, you can choose from one of the new NBA 2K24 MyPLAYER Templates. As explained by content creator ‘Joe Knows‘ here, these NBA Template options will let you quickly pick a selection of stats that match the signature style of some of your favorite NBA players. Sure, you might not match their NBA 2K24 ratings right off the bat, but you will still have 99 OVR potential and all their animations.

Interestingly, you can customize these pre-set NBA Template builds too. ‘Joe Knows’ does explain that you’ll lose the signature aspects of each build, but this can still be an excellent way of setting yourself up with a decent selection of stats before you jump further into things.

Content creator ‘Bashworld‘, who has also taken a look at the NBA 2K24 MyPLAYER builder ahead of any sort of NBA 2K24 early access period starting, has said this is a fantastic feature for newer players – which should help them get familiar with the systems in play, and jump into the action a lot quicker than before.

One thing worth noting, though, is that it isn’t something available for every single player in NBA 2K24. So, your favorite might not actually have an NBA Template to use. Although, you should still find another one similar-enough to it.

In addition to this, as explained by content creator ‘Uncle Demi‘, when you create your own player, you won’t be able to choose your body shape initially. However, you will be able to customize your height, weight, and wingspan. These will all alter the Max Potential for your stats, something that will be curtailed and changed if you choose a pre-built NBA Template.

You can, of course, also pick your position. When you decide on all of these aspects of your player, you’ll be able to start actually choosing your stats. While you’re choosing where you want your Attribute Potential to be assigned, you’ll notice that the builder itself will highlight which badges you can earn with certain stats. It’s described as “easier to navigate” than before and should help you tailor your MyPLAYER build to suit your needs and playstyle.

As you can see below, it might look a little complicated at first, but it’s a more intuitive system that should make creating the right NBA 2K24 MyPLAYER builds for you easier than ever before.

While NBA 2K24 is making MyTeam even more pay-to-win with the new Player Market feature, it sounds like it is also improving MyPLAYER builder. So, it isn’t all bad. NBA 2K24 also sees the MyNBA Eras return with LeBron James front and center – another fantastic new feature we can’t wait to check out. We do recommend keeping this NBA 2K24 locker codes page bookmarked, though. You’re going to need them.
