Before pouring in that valuable VC into your Next Gen NBA 2K22 MyPlayer build, it is extremely important to ensure that you're comfortable with each and every attribute cap you place.

As seen in previous titles in the virtual basketball franchise, maxing out a build takes hundreds of thousands of VC, as well as many hours in game to complete. For those who want to make sure they're not missing out on any important hidden attribute thresholds before finalizing their MyPlayer build, here are several of the important Badge requirements in NBA 2K22 MyCareer on Next Gen.
