Creating your own player to rise through the NBA’s ranks in NBA 2K21 is a ton of fun, but creating your own dream team out of star players past and present to pit against other players’ lineups can be just as much of a blast. That’s why we’re here to walk you through how to create a team in NBA 2K21.
How to Create a Team in NBA 2K21
Creating a team in NBA 2K21 isn’t all that hard to do once you know where to look for the option to do so.
From the main menu, scroll down to the Features tab and open it. This will allow you to select from a number of different gameplay modes and options, one of which being the Create a Roster mode. This is the mode where you can build a team of your own, using players from across the history of the sport to join your ranks.
Simply select the Create a Roster option, and you’ll then be able to dig into the mode and shape your own team.
It’s also worth noting that you can use a custom made character you’ve made as a player on your team in NBA 2K21. They’ll function much in the same way as any other player in the game, and can be added or removed as you see fit.
It’s worth noting, however, that their stats from the MyCareer mode will carry over when you’re using them in your lineup. If their stats aren’t up to snuff, take some time to improve them so that they won’t drag down the team during crucial moments.
