MyCareer Tips

Don't squander your opportunity to take your superstar to new heights. Follow these few basic tips to maximize your potential.

Go to a bad team
There's a little inside joke in sports drafts: no one wants to go to the worst team. Often than not, that team is usually the one ahead of the pack in the draft order as they ranked lowest in the previous season. It could also be the one with the most money to throw around, as bad teams usually have more cap space to work with.

Against all of the lessons you've been taught in life, we're here to tell you that this is not a bad thing in NBA 2K20. Going to a bad team can have its benefits for a star on the rise. You're likely to get more playing time, which means you'll get more chances to prove yourself, which means you'll become a starter faster, which means you'll make more money. Your dream might be to play alongside Lebron James on the Lakers but think about how much money you could make if you were tasked with pulling a franchise like the Detroit Pistons out of mediocrity.

You can still go to a team that has superstars on it and make out OK in the long run (especially when some of those older guys start retiring), but don't even think about joining one with a star at the same position as yours unless you like riding the pine.

Only buy what you need
If you're not going to be spending any real money in MyCareer, then it's important to be smart with your VC. (On the flipside, if you're not interested in grinding for the VC, then be smart with your real money.)

Especially in the early going, you'll want to use every point of VC you get to improve your character's ratings and abilities. The shoes, tattoos, jewelry, haircuts, and all that other stuff will tempt you for sure, but there's no sense in being a well-dressed basketball player who can't exactly play basketball.

Go for the badges you want early
Go through the list of possible badges you can earn and identify the ones you think will benefit your character the most. When you find those badges, equip them and level them early. Aside from raw attribute points, badges offer you the most significant source of improvement (and you won't even need to spend any VC to get them).

Choose the most lucrative sponsorships (and do them)
Don't gloss over sponsorships as some sort of side game that doesn't mean anything. Sponsorships can net you more VC per game, a bonus on big, nationally televised games, and free gear. This is especially important if you aren't spending real money on VC, as the grind to improve your character is brutal otherwise.

To that end, pay close attention to the choices you make in MyCareer. Each choice and action will get you more fans, more media exposure, or alter the chemistry between you and your teammates, all of which will factor into both your player and sponsorship contract negotiations.

Defensive Tips

It's not all about scoring points — you have to prevent your opponents from scoring them, too. Digest these tips on the other side of the ball to keep the other team from running away with the game.

Square up and strafe for better defense
When it comes time to keep up with your man, you might think the turbo button will keep you safe. That is wrong. Hold L2 instead, and watch as your player gets low and squares his shoulder to the ball carrier. You'll find it easier to control your man as you look to try and match the movements of the ball carrier, and you can even use the right analog stick to put your hands in the way of a shot or into a passing lane to attempt a block, steal, or contested shot. The L2 button will be your best friend on defense.

You will still need to get comfortable with that turbo button if you're on offense and suffer a fast break rebound, but for the most part, this is how you follow your assignment.

Get back on the fast break
Speaking of fast breaks, don't lollygag on the turn of possession. If your teammate misses a shot and you can't get the rebound, start running down to the other end of the court. And when you make the shot, don't sit around celebrating when the point guard is about to take the ball right back in the other direction.

Box out on rebounds and free-throws
And speaking of rebounds, make it easier on yourself. The defense will be in a better position to rebound the ball more often than not. When you are, hold L2 to box your guy out, and either pave the way for your players to grab it or go and get it yourself (especially if you're the center).

Don't leave your man open
Not sure what your assignment on any given play or in any given defense is supposed to be? NBA 2K20 has visual aides turned on for most difficulty levels. On defense, you'll see a blue arrow directing you toward the man you're supposed to pick up.

It's especially important to pay attention to this indicator when you're playing zone defense, as the man you're supposed to be guarding changes constantly. If you find yourself away from the play, just press the X button to switch to the player closest to the ball.

Go for well-timed steals
Forcing turnovers is an important part of basketball. The classic steal is one of the most exciting defensive plays because of it. Just press Square to put your hand out and go for the ball.

Be careful, though. If you spam the steal button you risk being called for a reach-in foul. Try and only go for the steal against a player who doesn't have great handling, or while they're in the act of passing the ball. Even just one or two stolen possessions can be the difference between winning and losing the game.

Attacking and Defending

You can try out some advanced trips and tricks as well such perform a pick and roll which is a great move to pass the ball to your teammates. You can perform this move by pressing the left bumper and move the player towards the player under your control. This is a great offense move and you must practice to master this move as it helps in keeping the ball secure under tight situations.

-You can pass the ball around easily to any player by aiming your throw by using the left analog stick. It is wise to keep close to other team players and not be surrounded by enemy players while you are on the offense. Keep passing the ball between players who have some open space to make some advancement towards the hoop.

-If you want to change the player while you are playing defense, you can simply press the A button on Xbox or X button on PlayStation to quickly switch to the player who is closest to the ball. This is again a very helpful feature and one that you should be aware of. Always make this a habit to use this shortcut to choose the player nearest to the ball so you can tackle the opposition in time.

-On defense, you should always be aware about the player whom you need to defend. This is made very easy in NBA 2K20 as there will a blue arrow pointing towards the players who has the ball and you should be defending. This feature is very helpful as sometimes you might lose sight of the player with ball among all the activity going on the screen.

-You can also raise your hands up to block a player who is trying to score by holding down the left trigger. This will allow you to block the player or his shot while he is in the paint. This is yet another important move that you need to know.

MyTeam Mode

Your go-to strategy for staring out with be to pick the starter pack with the most silver players. This will help you get an upper hand in matches early on. Secondly, you might want to keep an eye on the heat check cards.

These are special packs of cards that will quickly rise in value over time, so get them as soon as possible. You can then choose to use them for yourself or sell these cards at tremendous profits at the Auction House.

Regarding the main currency of the MyTeam Mode, MT coins, they are hard to come by but if you get a hand on some, try to save up on it.

Eventually, you will come to a point where you can buy expensive and legendary player cards to build a near-perfect version of your team. Spending it quickly will not yield such good results, wait for something better.

Patience is key here. We are looking at around 10k MT coins before you can even think of spending anything.

Challenges within the MyTeam mode will allow you to get a decent amount of reward tokens for not that much of an effort. The difficulty level is not too much either and so it is a walk in the park.

You can also try to team up with your friends and carry out these challenges to put the fun factor into it as well!

Try Different Camera Perspectives

The game's default camera perspective lets you view the action from the side but if you feel that this doesn't suit you, you can opt for a different setting. You can go to the settings and try out different camera settings to find the one that you find most comfortable to play with.

Master The New Shot Meter

This game brings a new shot meter which wasn't there in previous entries in the series. This time around, you will be able to see a meter next to the player and to ge tthe best shot possible, you should let go of the ball when the meter is the highest.

UC4F0NVL, Sep 10, 2019

Use Bounce Passes

There are lots of different kinds of passes in the game that will be of use in different situations. However, each of them carries some risks too. The best pass to use early on and which comes with low risk is the bounce pass, so make sure you use it when you need to pass the ball to a nearby player.

Jenn01220, Sep 10, 2019

Wait For An Opening

Don't always go for shots if it's going to end up with you losing possession for the ball. Sometimes, the best tactic will be to just pass the ball to nearby teammates and then wait for an opening so that you can get an easier shot.

Wutang, Sep 10, 2019

Be Careful With The Turbo Button

Don't always use the Turbo button as it will leave your players exhausted and it also prevents you from making those subtle plays that are needed to score points. Use it only when absolutely necessary and at other times, moving at normal speed is good enough.

Start With A Bad Team

Apart from the great feeling of bringing the underdog team to victory, it's also great to start with a not-so-great team simply because it will guarantee you a greater amount of play time which will lead to greater pay, and so on.

JTL100, Sep 10, 2019

Indicators Show Whom To Defend Against

On most difficulties, the game will provide visual aides which will show you which player you're supposed to focus on when playing defense. Pay attention to these indicators to play exactly what's required of your player's position in the team.

ThePunisher, Sep 10, 2019

Offenses and Defenses

For any beginner, the basics are of utmost importance. As such, here are some simple tips for those wanting to get better at both aggressive and defensive play.

For offense, the most important thing to understand is that coverage can hamper your game play. Gone are the days of defenders just randomly flying up in your face and being able to randomly get a block. Instead, timing is key. Make sure to maximize the efficiency of your shots by trying to always find the open player. The more open the player is, the better chance their shot has of going in, whether it's a 3pt shot, or a drive through an open lane.

For defense, the most important thing is understanding how to cover your opponent. Each player, at the start of the defensive phase, is assigned a man-to-man defense. As such, it is your job, depending on who you pick, to defend your man and not let them get any open space. Also, time your jumps and block attempts. If you jump, or attempt a steal, and miss, you have now given your opponent a large window of opportunity to make a play, as you need to recover from your unfortunate mistake.
