NBA 2K19 MyTeam Guide

At the very beginning of your journey in NBA 2K19’s MyTeam mode, you’ll be asked to select your favorite team. Well, you don’t actually have to select your favorite team, rather you can select the team who’s star player you want to build your team around. So, if you opt to go with the Golden State Warriors, you’ll receive their home and away uniforms, their stadium card, and a 89 overall rated Kevin Durant.

From here, MyTeam opens up for you to do basically whatever you want. However, we’d recommend scrolling over to the Single Player tab, and selecting Freestyle, which is basically the practice mode. This mode lets you get to grips with the top three rated players on your MyTeam, and it’s great for getting their shooting mechanics down before you head into a game.

Speaking of heading into a game, you can also do that on the Single Player tab of NBA 2K19’s MyTeam mode. Now select the Domination mode, and you’ll be taken to a screen with a series of challenges on it. Select NBA Domination, and you’ll see the screen just below, where you can take on every team from each conference in the NBA. Every time you beat a team in this single player mode, you’ll be rewarded with VC (Virtual Currency) based on your performance, as well as certain packs with players from the team you beat, if you manage to perform well enough in that game.

This is the route we’d recommend undertaking to improve your NBA 2K19 MyTeam in the early hours of the game. The Single Player tab has some great modes and battles for you earn a lot of VC pretty quickly, especially if you can get your shooting and dribbling moves down in the practice mode.

Now that we’re all done with this introductory guide to NBA 2K19’s MyTeam mode, you can move on ahead to our more in depth guides on the game. There’s our NBA 2K19 scoring guide if you want to know how to put up points quickly, or our complete NBA 2K19 offensive controls guide, for all the flashy dunk and dribbling moves you need.
