NBA 2K23 recently detailed its revamped MyNBA mode for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S where players can experience the NBA’s different eras.
For the new generation of consoles, MyNBA will feature Eras. An Era is a point in time where you can start playing a new MyNBA save. As the name implies, each era starts in a specific time period that’s significant in NBA history.
With these eras, you can see lots of “what if” scenarios play out during these iconic eras. For instance, you can play a scenario where Michael Jordan went #1 and was picked by the Houston Rockets. Or maybe you want to see how many rings the Shaq and Kobe Lakers win if they didn’t break up after the ’04 season/
The previous MyNBA experience is still in the game, but it is now dubbed the “Modern Era.” Meanwhile, the three other eras include:
- The Magic vs Bird Era – This era happens in the 1980s during the rise of two iconic legends, Magic Johnson and Larry Bird; and it starts specifically in 1983. Aside from these two, this era also features lots of iconic players, including Moses Malone, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Isiah Thomas, George Gervin, Alex English, Julius “Dr. J” Erving
- The Jordan Era – The next era is none other than the the time of his Airness, Micheal Jordan. While Jordan dominated the 90s, this era also features the Bad Boys Pistons, Stockton and Malone, Hakeem’s Rockets, and Ewing’s Knicks. It starts in the 1992 draft.
- The Kobe Era – Finally, we have the Kobe era which starts in 2002 during the height of the Kobe-Shaq Lakers. Of course, other iconic 2000s players also played in this era, including Tim Duncan, Dirk Nowitzki, Allen Iverson, and the young Lebron James.
To further add to the experience, 2K has pulled out all the stops for the new MyNBA eras. Each team will have accurate courts that are taken straight out of their era, complete with accurate uniforms and commentary. The eras even feature specific filters that’ll make your playthrough look straight out of the 80s, 90s, and 2000s.
Plus, even with these era-accurate changes, MyNBA still promises to be a sandbox where players are free to change the league as they see fit.
