An official NBA 2K21 MyTeam Season 2 trailer and Courtside Report on Friday gave fans a look at what’s available and ahead in MT mode. In MyTeam, gamers build a squad of top talents, by adding various player cards and items to their roster. These cards are available through packs in the Store, unlocking them through challenges, or exchanging sets of cards.

Gamers receive a free agent Onyx Zion Williamson player card as part of Season 2. It’s the first reward unlocked for Level 1 on the new season. Other rewards include Tokens, Packs, collectibles, XP, and other player cards.

The top reward for getting to Level 40 in NBA 2K21 MyTeam Season 2 is a Pink Diamond Blake Griffin card. It’s a 96 overall item that features Griffin usable as a power forward or center. It’s the next big reward following Season 1’s PD Steph Curry.
