NBA 2K17 MyCareer Guide

The MyCareer mode of the game is the main attraction in the game. The player can turn his rookie player to a seasoned superstar. Given below are a few tips and tricks to achieve that objective.

First of all, the player needs to create a player through the MyPlayer option. The player is given a lot of choices here like the archetype, height, weight, wingspan, etc. Try to find a balance which suits your playing style. Selecting a player which does not match your playing style won’t lead to good results in matches.

Take advantage of the dual control feature in the game. It is difficult to master but once mastered, the player can win games easily.

Make use of the custom jump shots. Most players here go for flashy and appealing moves. We recommend you to go with the move which suits you, easy to execute and boosts your performance. Always remember that performance outweighs style.

Badges should be acquired in the game as soon as possible. Be wise in upgrading attributes.

The last tip is to remember that it is a team game. Don’t try to be the hero of the team. Pass around the ball to your teammates and coordinate with them. It does not matter if you are the one not scoring. As long as your team is winning, you are playing good.

Listed below are the attributes in MyPlayer section.
