NBA 2K23 Exclusive PlayStation MyTEAM Challenges Revealed

The start of the 2022-23 NBA regular season is just around the corner, which means NBA 2K23 is even closer to its September 9 launch. We’ve been teasing brand new features for weeks and now we’re excited to announce the return of exclusive challenges coming to our PlayStation 5 community!

Last year, we offered exclusive PlayStation 5 MyTEAM challenges such as “Assists against Dirk & Luka” to start NBA 2K22 Season 1. The latest iteration of the NBA 2K franchise will present similar challenges on PlayStation 5, but this year they revolve around Michael Jordan, further highlighting this year’s Championship Edition cover athlete.

Thanks to the next-level technology of the PlayStation 5, navigating to the Jordan Challenges is incredibly easy. By pressing the PS button, in the main menu, each of the activity cards will appear in a row. Scroll through each of the 2K23 modes that appear on the activity cards, and when ready, press SQUARE to start the activity. It really is that simple.

Below, we’ve listed the challenges released in each season this year, so you can get a taste of what’s to come!

Season 1: Rookie of the Year

When Jordan set foot on the hardwood as a rookie, he wasted no time in establishing himself as a bona fide force both on offense and defense. To kick off NBA 2K23’s first season, you’ll be tasked with stopping him and his 1985 Chicago Bulls teammates. Assemble a team and score 50 team points to beat Jordan and receive your reward.

Season 2: The All-Star Dunker

Jordan has always possessed raw athleticism, but he showcased it during the 1988 All-Star Weekend, earning his second straight Slam Dunk Contest victory. Meet the Slam Dunk Champion and All-Star MVP on the edge, along with his 1988 Eastern Conference All-Star teammates. Throw 10 fierce dunks to complete the challenge.

Season 3: Defense Wins Championships

MJ’s defense proved to be a major factor in his victory in the 1991 NBA Finals, earning the first ring of his career. Show the nine-time All-Defense player that you’re capable of your own lock-in defense by smashing five hits.

Season 4: Win as a team

His Airness won Finals MVP and MVP hardware in 1992, but he couldn’t have done it without the support of his teammates. Despite being an outstanding goalscorer, Jordan was also an outstanding facilitator. Distribute 10 Team Assists in Season 4 to claim your reward.

Season 5: Three-Round Triples

In 1993, the Chicago Bulls looked unstoppable. With Jordan in the lead, the Bulls did what few teams in NBA history have accomplished by winning three consecutive NBA Finals. To honor the hat-trick, hit five three-point shots against the Bulls in MyTEAM and give them a taste of their own medicine.

Season 6: Flying in the Air Jordan

The 1996 All-Star team featured top-flight talent, with Michael Jordan as the headliner. The All-Star Game is usually a dunk-fest, where the league’s most gifted players unleash a flurry of slams. Elevate your MyTEAM lineup to victory by hovering over the edge for 10 dunks and secure your reward.

Season 7: Take on the 72-Win Bulls

In 1996, the sports world thought the Chicago Bulls’ record of 72 wins would be untouchable, and for more than 20 years it has been. The Season 7 challenge is a tribute to the record-breaking Bulls, requiring you to score 72 points against them and win. Do you think you are up to the task?

Season 8: Behind the Arc Range

The game has changed over the years, with more teams and players relying heavily on three-point shooting. Although it’s more prevalent now than it was in the 90s, there were flashes of three-point attacks in Jordan’s days. Unleash a barrage of three-point shots and drain 10 as a team to complete the objective.

Season 9: The Last GOAT Challenge

Michael Jordan’s Last Dance was a sight to behold. The Bulls completed their second hat-trick of the 90s with their win in the 1998 NBA Finals. Jordan held a clinic in Game 6 to close the series with 45 points, adding to an already impressive legacy. Replicate Jordan’s memorable outing with your very own 45-point game.

This year’s rewards consist of an exclusive diamond shoe colorway, 5 shoe boosters, and a gold badge for a total of 7 reward cards for each challenge. All nine challenges will be playable on PlayStation5, and each of the challenges comes with built-in activity cards for you to use at your leisure. When NBA 2K23 releases September 9, answer the call to greatness by challenging Michael Jordan in MyTEAM.
