NBA 2K23 has revealed its completely new MyCareer mode starring Dreamville artist J. Cole in what Visual Concepts is calling the most in-depth story mode they’ve ever done.

Each year the NBA 2K series remakes its single-player MyCareer mode, offering players a new storyline about a young player who makes their way to the NBA.

Developer Visual Concepts has delivered 2K fans tons of various zero-to-hero stories over the years for NBA fans to enjoy, but with NBA 2K23, it seems the devs have gone over the top with both a layered story and huge celebrity tie-in for MyCareer to make the game mode more realistic than ever.

2K23’s MyCareer mode starts off just after the NBA Draft and will focus on players balancing their play on the court with navigating their interests off the court including careers in fashion, music, and business.

Dreamville musicians Bas and Elite will help facilitate players into the inner circle of J. Cole as players will befriend him and become icons in both the basketball world as well as the areas of their choice.

Alfie Brody, Vice President of Global Marketing Strategy at NBA 2K, said of the new MyCareer: “The sheer scale, depth, and talent featured in this year’s MyCAREER creates an unparalleled experiencewithin NBA 2K23.”
