NBA 2K23 MyCareer: Everything you need to know about leadership

In team sports, one aspect that really sets some of the most talented players apart is leadership – or lack thereof. Leadership Styles come into play during your MyCareer in NBA 2K23 and offer you one of two ways in which you can leverage your budding Superstar’s leadership abilities.

Below you will find everything you need to know about leadership in MyCareer. This includes the two paths, how to unlock leadership points, a brief overview of leadership skills, and ways to improve your leadership outside of games.

How to choose your leadership style

When you start MyCareer and face your rival Shep Owens – the player that fans wanted to be called into the story instead of you – you’ll see the top and bottom screens. There are two leadership styles: The General and the Trailblazer.

The general is yours traditional team-first player who shuns the limelight in favor of team success. The trailblazer is a more flashy player who likes to overdo his game and influences the team’s success. Neither is necessarily better than the other, and it really depends on your playing style or your MyPlayer’s position.

A point guard might be better off with The General since there are more skills tied to team performance (like assisting different players), while goalscorers and centers might want to go with The Trailblazer because there are more skills that favor plays (mostly scoring goals). and defence) with your player.

For example, the basic Tier 1 ability is General solid base. Solid Foundation rewards you with a small boost to agility and playmaking with a bigger boost to your teammates and is activated by achieving a B teammate class. The basic level 1 skill of the Trailblazer is keep it simple. Keep It Simple rewards you with a small boost for indoor and mid-range shots with a larger boost for your teammates and is activated by five shots. Each of these level 1 skills costs one skill point.

Every skill set has one Tier 1 Skill, 14 Tier 2 Skills, 21 Tier 3 Skills, and 20 Tier 4 Skills. Level 4 skills are unlocked Once you have accumulated a total of 40 skill points. At level 2, level 1 skills (bronze) cost two skill points and silver six skill points. At level 3, level 1 skills cost nine skill points, level two cost 20, and level three cost 33 skill points. After unlocking level 4 skills, level 1 skills cost 36 skill points, level 2 76, level 3 120, and level 4 a whopping 170 each.

Due to the sheer number of abilities, here is a pick (tier one) from tiers 2, 3, and 4 in The Trailblazer. Remember that with each level and level, the requirements become progressively more difficult, but offer greater rewards:

  • Accelerate (level 2): This is activated when you score ten points in a quarter. It rewards you with a boost in Playmaking, Inside, Mid-Range, and Three-Point Shooting for you and a small boost for your teammates in the last three.
  • Unstoppable Force (Tier 3): This is activated when you score four consecutive field goals without an assist. It rewards you with boosts to all three shooting tiers and small boosts to Post Defense, Perimeter Defense, and Offense and Defense IQ for your teammates.
  • Smile for the Camera (Level 4): This is activated after a player has been posterized or two highlight plays have been made. It rewards you with boosts to Strength, Vertical, and Inside Shooting, while rewarding your teammates with small boosts to Playmaking, Agility, and Offensive IQ.

Here are some level 1 skills from The General:

  • Legacy Reliability (Tier 2): This is activated after assisting or scoring on two pick and rolls or pick and pops. It rewards you with a small boost to playmaking and all three levels of shooting, while also rewarding your teammates with a larger boost in all four.
  • Keep Moving (Tier 3): This is activated after recording five assists. It rewards you with a small boost for build-up and a moderate boost for all three levels of shooting, giving your teammates a bigger boost of the last three.
  • You get one… and you! (Level 4): This is activated after helping two different teammates. It rewards you with a small boost to playmaking and agility, while rewarding your teammates with nudges in all three shooting tiers.

As you can see from the brief selection, the General’s activation and boosts are aimed at improving your teammates and not yourself, while the Trailblazer’s activation and boosts are aimed at improving yourself and secondarily your teammates. Regardless, they are both great assets to your game

Well, note that you can only have two leadership skills equipped at a time. You can switch between them depending on the matchup, or pick your most reliable ones to ensure you always hit leadership goals. While the higher level and leveled skills tend to be more challenging, they are also reward you with the most leadership skill points upon completion.

The other important note is that You can gain leadership points through your answers in media scrums and post-game pressers. You’ll see either a blue or red icon (although these can also be used for branding, so keep your eyes peeled!), and these will serve as your guide as to which is which: Blue for The General and red for The Trailblazer. Once you’ve decided on a path, stick with it, as you’ll likely earn enough points to unlock every Blue or Red ability well before your first season is complete, probably even before the All-Star break.

Now you know everything you need to know about leadership for MyCareer in NBA 2K23. Which path will you choose?
