In the past I’ve always tried to model MyPLAYER after myself. In attempt to make my build as real as possible; the vitals, height, weight, even attributes are all set accurately to create a true digital version of myself. Now although I’ve had success in previous 2K versions following that formula, this time around I decided to do something a little different.

As an athlete, whether it’s high school, college, or the pros…to become the best you must follow the blueprint laid out by the great ones…


MyPLAYER DNA

We all have our own individual playing styles, but its the little things that separate the the average from the elite.

Below you’ll find several NBA All-Stars that I’ve picked a part. Take a look at some of the NBA 2K Badges they each have. These badges helped me create the foundation/build for my NBA 2K MyPLAYER.

The badges I mention below are from NBA 2K19. However, they are not a true representation of the individual player attributes listed in NBA 2K19. I personally assigned the 2K Badges to each player below based on my own personal opinion of each player’s skillset.
