NBA 2K23 MyTEAM Playoffs Players

NBA 2K23
Olivier Dumont Updated on by

The 2022-23 NBA Playoffs officially commenced on Saturday, April 15, and unsurprisingly, has been off to a riveting run. With plenty of playoff basketball to enjoy, there’s a whole lot of excitement and intensity swirling in the air, and NBA 2K23 wanted to add to that with their very own Playoffs players release.

Though the Playoffs feature doesn’t contain the makeup of a full on Event or Program (comes with limited time only packs and no collection sets), it does cater a stacked cast of current 2022-23 NBA Playoff stars that can also evolve into better overall versions depending on how well they perform. What’s awesome about this Playoffs drop though, is that it comes with over 185 new cards, ranging from Rubies to Dark Matter players.

With NBA 2K23 going live with its Playoffs player drop on Saturday, April 15, the limited time release has been fully underway for over a month now, granting fans plenty of time to get their hands on these incredible player items and or evolve variations. Should you be after any of the Playoffs Dark Matter and Galaxy Opal players that were released in NBA 2K23 MyTEAM – including their evolve versions – we’ve got you covered with the full list down below.

The only three main methods available to secure these new Playoffs players in NBA 2K23 MyTEAM is by purchasing them from the Auction Market using MyTEAM Coin, unlocking them from random packs you acquire, such as the Heroic Pack, or by completing the new Playoffs Spotlight Challenges.

To locate these challenges, visit the Spotlight Challenges menu in MyTEAM, and as you scroll down, you will see the different NBA Playoff Series (Bucks vs Heat Series for example) that will come with regular Playoffs Packs or Deluxe Playoffs Packs as their rewards. Each Playoffs series will have a certain challenge and reward available for each game that is played, whether it’s tokens, MyTEAM Coin, or Playoffs Packs. So there’s plenty to be had with this new Playoffs Spotlight Challenge collection.

Aside from these three methods, NBA 2K23 MyTEAM did add three Playoffs Deluxe Player Packs within the rewards path of its Triple Threat offline mode for Season 7. These three Playoffs Deluxe Player Packs can be unlocked at the 25 win mark, the 50 win mark, and the 75 win mark. Should you opt to go after Playoffs players from the Auction Market, most of them do come with reasonable prices, especially when targeting Diamond and Pink Diamond players.

In addition, should any of the Playoffs players have a strong performance, their card will receive an evolve star. Some Playoff players that have received evolve boosts already include Rui Hachimura, Kevin Love, Jamal Murray, and Austin Reaves. That said, this is only the small sample size of the full list NBA 2K23 MyTEAM has released so far, which we detail down below.

So without further ado, here’s the 38 Dark Matter and Galaxy Opal Playoffs players that have arrived in NBA 2K23 MyTEAM, to go along with all of the latest Evolve Playoffs players:

As highlighted above, a handful of the Playoffs players that have earned evolve cards, received big upgrades from their previous overalls. If you acquire the original version of any of these players, you can complete their in-game challenges to evolve them into their higher overall forms.

That said, should you want to save yourself some time, you can also find these improved evolve versions in the Auction Market. However, the better the evolve player you’re after, the more expensive they will be to purchase.
