Teammate Grade and MyPOINTS in NBA 2K23 work hand in hand in rewarding a MyPLAYER’s in-game performance. Read on for the full guide!

Teammate Grade Explained

Teammate grades are a feature in NBA 2K that grades the total gameplay performance for any MyPLAYER game, whether in MyCAREER, Pro-Am / Rec, or Park / City. Individual in-game action, positive or negative, contribute to the overall teammate grade.

Teammate Grade Tips

  • Some of the best actions to improve teammate grade include:
    • Alley-Oop Finishes
    • Assists
    • Blocks
    • Steals
  • Avoid
    • Turnovers
  • Run plays like pick and roll to get open or a teammate open
  • Try to ‘stack’ positive plays together (e.g tipped pass + steal + dunk)
  • Scoring alone won’t optimize teammate grade scores, but versatility and making smart basketball plays will be rewarded more and help reach the A+ teammate grade.
  • Increasing the quarter setting (up to 12 minute quarters) allows for more time to get a good teammate grade.
