NBA 2K21: How to Buy & Change Animations

Even more than ever before, NBA 2K21 is all about customization. In MyCareer, the game’s main mode, you can change your baller’s stats, gear, and animations. The animations alter emotes in matches and even how they act as they wander around the Neighborhood. So that you can switch up your player’s moves, here’s everything you need to know about how to buy and change animations in NBA 2K21.

Animations come in a variety of categories. Split into Shots, Dribble Moves, MyPlayer Rituals, NBA Dunks & Layups, The Neighborhood Emotes, and The Neighborhood Signature Movement, they cover pretty much everything your player does in the mode. Switching between them keeps the game fresh and looks cool as you progress through the season.
