One of the biggest attractions for NBA 2K23, is that of MyCAREER and the countless items and prizes you can unlock from the rewards ladder that comes with each new season. Well Season 5, unsurprisingly, didn’t disappoint one bit, and comes baring plenty for fans to earn.

To make you feel at home, NBA 2K23 is rewarding fans a snazzy Hawaiian shirt upon reaching Level 10 to enjoy the warm-weather energy that Season 5 will cater. Once you reach Level 35, you will receive an elite new pair of the Nike Ja 1 shoes that you can rock within The City or on The G.O.A.T. Boat. And finally, the ultimate prize at Level 40 in MyCAREER is that of a snazzy Pocket Bike that will allow you to cruise around your respective neighborhood settings with no problem.

Lastly, fans can acquire some new exclusive designer clothing items as well, with the highlight being the collaborative clothing drop of Amsterdam-based brand Daily Paper along with Dreamville. From new varsity jackets, hoodies, and more, this designer project from Daily Paper, as 2K states, “draws inspiration from its founders’ African heritage to create contemporary fashion.”
