Making The Right Decisions Early In Your Career

MyCareer in NBA 2K22 gives you a number of decisions to make early on your player that can affect their career. Besides the actual creation of your player, one of the earliest decisions can be to choose to jump straight to the G-League or go to college.

Going to college will get you a chance to build your resume in the NCAA Tournament and improve your draft chances. Depending on how well you do, you may get drafted to a higher team that is much more in need of players, which may be what you want.

This is sort of the risk and reward here, as you can maybe go to a weaker team with a better chance to start, but also can mean you’ll go to a team that needs a lot of work and won’t be a contender due to the rest of the players around you.

How To Become A Starter After Joining A Team In NBA 2K22

After joining a team, whether that was after selecting to go college or the G-League, it can be a grind to become a starter.

As mentioned above, a lot of it can really depend on which team you’re on. For instance, if you join the Atlanta Hawks as a point guard, it’s going to be pretty hard to unseat Trae Young as the starter. This is where you’re going to hope the team you join does not have a superstar player at your position.

Once you are on the team, really the key to becoming a starter is to play well in the minutes you are given. Get your player rating up in each game and do what your position is designed to do. If you are a point guard like mentioned above, don’t only try to score, but also work to get some assists as well, and so on.

The obvious way to help you perform better in games is to improve your player’s stats with VC, but many people will not want to do this. Instead, you just need to focus on grinding VC in the game and getting better yourself.

As long as you keep performing well in your limited minutes in each game as a bench player and aren’t being blocked by a superstar player, you should eventually become a starter before too long. If you just aren’t having any luck, that’s when you might want to see about a trade with your coach.
