The tournament is already underway and will be played using the MyTEAM Unlimited Mode on NBA 2K21 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, which features 5-on-5 NBA-style gameplay and allows users to choose any 13 cards from their Collection.
Players can enter the tournament by pre-qualifying at the beginning of each new MyTEAM Season. Seasons are new to NBA 2K21’s MyTEAM mode, and bring new content and ways to play MyTEAM all year long at no additional cost.
