Triple Threat Online Co-Op

Next, the NBA 2K23 now also features a Triple Threat Online Co-Op which is a first for the franchise. Essentially, it is a game mode that will allow you to compete against and with your friends. 

The developers have also stated that the game mode will further have different modes like the Party mode, Co-Op mode, and Competitive mode. Also, we would like to make it clear that, unfortunately, this game mode is not available on Nintendo Switch, as the developers have reported.

Player Lock

Finally, at last, players can choose the option of player locking anybody in their lineup in NBA 2K23. This feature can now also be utilized in any of the My Team game modes, and it lasts for a whole My Team match. Furthermore, the player locking feature is especially effective for managing a specific player or enhancing a certain player during a match, or if you just like a position and want to play there all the time.

Redesigned Unlimited

The Prestige Tier revolves around Season Points which are earned in every match, but the amount varies according to different factors. Also, Unlimited now has a leaderboard through which you can keep track of your rank in the game, and a special icon is reserved for the Top 10.

Unlimited Tournament

We are very excited to inform you that the new NBA 2K23 will be featuring a $250,000 My Team Unlimited Tournament, which was a thing in the old NBA games. The old NBA game fans will appreciate it as it will be nostalgic for them. 

Also, the finalists of the tournament will be competing for $250,000, among which $50,000 is for the Console Champions and $200,000 is for the Grand Champions.

Clutch Time

In NBA 2K22, Clutch Time was first introduced as a single-player arcade mode where a four-point line was placed for better clutch moments in the game. The game mode was a hit with the 2K22 community, and that is a major reason why the developers have made it an official launch feature of the new NBA 2K23.

Strater Card Trial 

Starter Cards

First of all, maybe one of the most exciting parts of My Team is getting to pick your starter cards, and as you might know that the first problem an average player faces is which among these cards he should pick.

Well, we are here to tell you that this is not a problem anymore as the new NBA 2K23 features a Trial Period for the starter cards, during which you are able to play with all the cards to determine the best for you amongst them. 

Trophy Case Awards

Well, there are multiple ways in the new NBA 2K23 My Team through which you can earn multiple rewards, and one of the new additions is the Trophy Case Awards. In this section, there will be 15 event cards available for each of the NBA franchises, and these cards will show some of the key moments in the team’s history. 


It is another way to earn rewards, but this time, sending a player card outside of your 13-player lineup will help you receive an amazing reward. The exhibitions provide a very good passive method to earn game-changing rewards.

With this, our list is complete, and we bring it to an end. In our guide on the NBA 2K23 My Team Changes, we listed every change that was being implemented in the new NBA 2K23. However, if you feel like we missed something in the list, then please do let us know through the section down below.
