Below is the official NBA 2K23 MyNBA trailer:
Players have access to a time machine through MyNBA that enables them to start a new MyNBA save at a particular period in NBA history known as an Era. Players have the option of playing through single or with friends, and they can choose to either relive or redo significant scenes, such as:
The Modern Era
The Modern Era is the new name for the earlier MyNBA experience. Those who have played the mode for a while can keep starting with the most recent rosters available and enjoying the standard MyNBA experience.
The Magic Vs Bird Era
Beginning in 1983, the league was consumed by the rivalry between Magic Johnson and Larry Bird. While competing to recruit players like Michael Jordan, Hakeem Olajuwon, or any other NBA luminaries who were selected in that illustrious decade, fans can recreate the history of the 1980s NBA.
The Jordan Era
Starting in 1991, this period places players at the start of Michael Jordan’s illustrious career with the Chicago Bulls. They will compete for the title of greatest basketball team of the 1990s against Isaiah Thomas’ “Bad Boys” Detroit Pistons, John Stockton and Karl Malone, Olajuwon’s Houston Rockets, and Patrick Ewing’s New York Knicks.
The Kobe Era
The Kobe Bryant era transports fans back to 2002, when the West had seen the emergence of a new generation of talent, led by Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks, Kevin Garnett and the San Antonio Spurs, Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs, and of course, the Black Mamba himself, Kobe Bryant. Players will compete not only with other legends of this era but also for draft position in preparation of the legendary 2003 selection class.
The new MyNBA feature includes over 100 new floors across all eras. When you start playing Eras, you’ll notice is that every team has a floor that corresponds to the Era year. Each team will receive at least one new floor per era, with some teams receiving more if they experienced a significant rebranding or relocation.
If you take part in a season in which a team moves, such as the Seattle SuperSonics, you’ll see them adopt their new name, logo, and uniforms in Oklahoma City. Alternatively, you can stop the relocation completely and retain the team where it was before. You can even change the league’s size or relocate clubs to entirely different cities.
Presentation + Commentary
The era-specific commentary and presentation is one of its greatest delights. For video games set in the years 1983 to 2002, Mike Fratello provides his commentary. Clark Kellogg and Kevin Harlan will collaborate with Fratello. Greg Anthony will succeed Fratello in 2002.
Presentation packages will also be era-specific, including overlays and scorebugs appropriate to the decade as well as screen filters that reflect it. Even the logos and branding from the decades being depicted were captured by 2K, in addition to the historically realistic arenas.
League Rules, Expansion, Relocation, & Gameplay Changes
When it comes to the rulebooks, if you don’t want to continue with the flopping, you can bring the punchier style of the 1980s into the present era when the game’s officials is ready to shift. Playing in the era beginning in 1983 may be the most gratifying, presuming you’ll stick with the sport for the next 40 years and get to see all the big changes as uniforms and courts evolve as well.
There will even be a commentary team for each era. Fortunately, Kevin Harlan is always engaged, and he will be joined by Mike Fratello, Greg Anthony, and other period-appropriate color commentators.
