If collecting digital card-based versions of your favourite basketball players, before pitting them against other players is up your street, then the NBA 2K24 MyTeam mode is the perfect place to bring the likes of Jokic and Jordan together on PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, and PC.

While isn’t too different from what we have seen in previous years. But, when the NBA 2K24 release date rolls around, developer 2K is set to sprinkle in some new ways to enjoy the sports game’s gacha-infused mode. Read on to find out more about how NBA 2K24 MyTeam is shaping up before you consider getting your NBA 2K24 pre-orders in.

NBA 2K24 MyTeam explained

NBA 2K24 MyTeam is a core mode in the series, and allows players to build their own unique team composed of NBA players from across the years. You can then compete against players online, across a number of sub-game modes.

MyTeam has now been fully revealed and players can be accrued either through opening packs, the revamped Auction House and player market, or NBA 2K24 Locker Codes, assembled into a dream line-up, and then taken into one of a multitude of online or offline modes. The team’s franchise and appearance can be customized, allowing you to stand out from the crowd.

The MyTeam formula hasn’t changed in years, and it has seen some core updates here thanks to player feedback. It’s clear that – like the EA FC 24 Ultimate Team mode and other gacha-based systems – it’s incredibly lucrative, and 2K is going to fix some parts of the game to keep players hooked.

NBA 2K24 MyTeam Salary Cup

The Salary Cup mode in NBA 2K24 MyTeam is a brand new multiplayer mode coming to the game which features three, two-week rounds each season. Each round comes with its own leaderboard, salary limit for lineups, and rewards.

This Replaces Draft and Limited and the competition has a salary cap to adhere to and more rewards to earn. Everyone’s squad should be around the same strength thanks to the salary cap restrictions, avoiding some of the struggles you would find in previous iterations of the mode.

On top of that, new releases in the Pack Market will feature improved odds for rare Player Cards. The Pack Market will also include more options for guaranteed pulls with fan-favorite pack types and more.

There are some concerns over the changes to the NBA 2K24 MyTeam Player Market here as players will be able to be bought using VC or MTP. While this levels the playing field a bit, it does suggest those who pay for virtual currency will have a distinct edge even with MTP earn rates being boosted.

NBA 2K24 MyTeam crossplay

2K has confirmed that NBA 2K24 MyTeam will have crossplay for the first time . PS5 and Xbox Series X|S players will be able to compete against each other or play with one another in Triple Threat online.

XP has seen a radical overhaul this year with cross-progression between MyCareer and MyTeam. Just playing will earn you XP and wins or losses will mean you progress.

NBA 2K24 MTP upgrades

MTP earn rates for all modes have also seen a big improvement according to 2K, with more flexibility for everyone just for playing games.

NBA 2K24 MyTeam Season Pass rewards

MyTeam will also have a number of rewards included in the NBA 2K24 Season Pass. These are effectively NBA 2K24 battle passes and you can grab a ton of rewards for each six-week season in the year.

Everyone will have access to 40 rewards for MyTeam for free. But, with the Pro Season Pass or the Hall of Fame Season Pass, you can grab two additional rewards.

Should you play NBA 2K24 MyTeam?

If you have the patience to play with little-to-no investment of your actual money, or have the means to invest but responsibly, then you absolutely should give NBA 2K24 MyTeam a go.

Pulling your favorite player from a pack, or being able to triple-double someone using some of the most legendary stars to grace the NBA is a truly fantastic feeling. Yet, while this all sounds like great news for your dopamine receptors, the journey of getting to that point is far less glamorous.

As with any loot box/gacha-based system, luck will ultimately decide how far you get without much investment early on. Such systems are built to encourage spending real-world currency on Virtual Currency (VC), though earned currency – MyTeam Coins (MT) – will ensure you have a steady trickle of packs.

Additionally, once you’ve earned enough MT, you’ll be able to bid against others on the Auction House, which for free-to-play players will become the most important source of top-tier cards.

And that’s all you need to know about the NBA 2K24 MyTeam mode. Whether you choose to invest your time (and money) into the mode, or keep it casual with the NBA 2K24 MyCareer mode, we’ve got your content needs covered. In the meantime, be sure to swot up on NBA 2K24 crossplay, and the NBA 2K24 ratings which are key to this mode. See you on the court.
