NBA 2K21 Dark Matters Cards: How to Get IDOLS Kevin Garnett, Coaches in MyTeam

A group of new NBA 2K21 Dark Matters cards has arrived for the MyTeam promotion including the first IDOLS player and several great coaches to boost rosters. The Big Ticket, Kevin Garnett, leads the way along with Hall of Fame coaches Phil Jackson and Gregg Popovich. Here’s a look at which new cards are available in the game and how to land them for your MyTeam roster.

KG is first IDOLS card for MyTeam promotion

A 99 overall rated card for upcoming Hall of Fame inductee Kevin Garnett is the first IDOLS release for NBA 2K21 Dark Matters cards. The 6-foot-11 power forward/center brings 97 Rebounding, 95 Inside Scoring, 94 Athleticism, 93 Defending, and 82 Playmaking.

In addition, MyTeam gamers will get 19 Gold and 41 Hall of Fame Badges with this card. Those include just about anything imaginable such as Acrobat, Relentless Finisher, Difficult Shots, Clamps, and Rim Protector. Basically, this card is a top-notch superhero KG to add to the lineup.

Garnett joins other legendary NBA 2K21 Dark Matters cards as part of the Age of Heroes release. That included the legendary Michael Jordan and young phenom Zion Williamson, both of whom had high-rated cards released in the past few weeks.

To get the KG card, gamers can try to randomly acquire it through the IDOLS packs or boxes at the Pack Market. Additionally, head over to the Auction House where Big Ticket’s card will likely have a big price tag, but gamers with big bankrolls should be OK to add KG.
