NBA 2K24 Season 3 is here! This season has great rewards, minigames, and more, proving 2K has mastered the art of the seasonal gameplay model. Many games have adopted this in recent memory, but not all of them do it effectively. With fun rewards, great cards, and exceptional gameplay, Season 3 proves that 2K24 is not one of those. Check out below all the rewards you can get!

NBA 2K24 Season 3 Rewards and Changes

As of now, all rewards for Season 3 have been revealed. Everything from Season 2 is gone and new items, cards, and more are in their place. Beginning at Level 1 on this new season, players will get a Season 3 themed T-shirt and Basketball.

Leveling up means the chance to unlock shot meters, double XP Coins, Allen Iverson’s Hairstyle, Floor Setters, Boosted Accessories, Ball Trails, a Pocket Bike, Emotes, and more. These will be a part of the Season Pass, and Iverson is the promotional athlete for this season. Among other rewards available are the very first Pink Diamond Player Cards, which are for Kevin Garnett, Hakeem Olajuwon, and Jimmy Butler among others.

  • DeMar DeRozan
  • Dell Curry
  • Steph Curry
  • Steve Nash

Furthermore, there is a 25 Days of 2K event, akin to the Christmas-themed time. During this, the developers will be giving out tons of MyCAREER and MyTEAM Locker Codes. With these, they are paying homage to old games with 25th Anniversary cards that feature throwbacks to tons of older games, including NBA 2K21, 2K18, 2K9and the very first NBA 2K.

The City has been remodeled to fit the holiday season. While it is a beach location, there are still snowmen, Christmas lights, trees, and more to mark the festivities. For all gamers (New Gen got this update a bit sooner), 2K has officially added the unique new courts from the inaugural in-season tournament. These are present in MyCAREER and MyTEAM and all City jerseys have been added for every team.

NBA 2K24 Season 3 Release Date & Start Time

NBA 2K24 Season 3 officially arrived on December 1, 2023. The start time was 11am EST/5pm BST. This had officially been confirmed by the developers, as they stated in the most recent update that the official start time was 8am PT/11am ET. The 2K calendar had slated the day as the end of Season 2, which means all rewards for that season officially left the game at that time. All rewards from Season 2 are gone, replaced with Season 3’s rewards.

If you want to make sure you unlock the Diamond Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Amethyst Terry Dischinger, or the Amethyst Coach Gregg Popovich card (Level 35), then you’ll need to grind until Season 2 officially ends. Once it does, those cards are unavailable. In rare circumstances, they can come back, but it’s rare and not confirmed for these cards, so be sure to get them while you can.

Zach’s Tips

There are always very good cards available in each season’s pass, so you should avoid missing out. They are good for lineups and for sets, so it’s always good to get them. Even if you’re trying to build a theme team and a certain card isn’t applicable, you should still get them since they are so valuable.

That’s all for what we know on Season 3, but be sure to find out how to instantly become a 99 OVR, how to do the face scan, and what the best builds are for MyPLAYER and MyCAREER.
