The race for Legend is back in NBA 2K23 with the launch of Season 1, inviting players to stay dedicated to the grind in order to earn an exclusive reward down the line.

In NBA 2K22, achieving Legend status required players to simply reach Level 40 in four different seasons. That formula has now been changed.

Here's a breakdown of how to become a Legend in NBA 2K23 MyCAREER on Current and Next Gen.

NBA 2K23 Legend Requirements: Current and Next Gen

In NBA 2K23 on both Current and Next Gen, there are four different objectives that players need to complete in order to hit Legend status.

NBA 2K23 Current Gen Requirements

  • Score 100,000 Points in The Neighborhood, Pro-AM or The REC Games
  • Play 500 Games at G.O.A.T. Level
  • Complete 13 Season Quests
  • Earn Prizes across 20 Events in The Neighborhood

NBA 2K23 Next Gen Requirements

  • Score 100,000 Points in The City, Pro-AM or The REC Games
  • Play 500 Games at G.O.A.T. Level
  • Complete 12 Season Quests
  • Earn Prizes across 20 Events in The City

The challenges are almost identical between the two versions of the game except Current Gen players have to complete one more Season Quest for whatever reason.

For clarification, the G.O.A.T. Level is the new name for the purple win-rate tier, Season Quests refresh each season are completed by hitting milestones (e.g. winning a certain amount of park games), and earning prizes requires players to perform above and beyond in Events such as the Mobil 1 Grand Prix.

As is tradition, the Legend prize for NBA 2K23 has yet to be revealed. However, 2K has teased that they are "part cosmetic and part performance enhancing" and are indeed unique to each version of the game.


NBA 2K23 is available now for PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC (via Steam).
