Here are some popular ideas for NBA 2K25. Got an idea for NBA 2K25? Add it to the NBA 2K25 Wishlist!

FIBA, Olympics & World Championships Game Mode

  • More than just having the rosters, make a new game mode where you can progress through FIBA and Olympic tournaments from past/present/future, build your Olympic roster, etc.
  • Complete Olympic & FIBA Rosters
  • Could be integrated into MyNBA, MyCAREER, and be a stand-alone mode

Highlight Show like ‘Sportscenter’

  • There’s 2KTV, but should also have an in-game highlight show that recaps all the highlights and action from around the league.
  • Could be integrated into MyCAREER and MyNBA

Add Missing Legends – Reggie Miller, Charles Barkley, Rasheed Wallace

  • Pay whatever monetary price to get Reggie Miller, Charles Barkley, and Rasheed Wallace into NBA 2K25

Virtual Reality and/or First Person View

  • Add a separate game or mode that is in VR mode and add First Person View camera
  • Realistic physical movements to simulate playing basketball (i.e. jumpshots, dribble moves, etc.)

More Realism, Less Cheese, More Gameplay Testing

  • Have modes like Pro-Am and Rec be more “sim”, while Park is more “arcade”
  • Nerf OP builds, speed boosting, glitchy moves that neutralize Adrenaline Boosts, and unrealistic badges.
  • Have Gameplay Devs and game testers get hands-on and test the game throughout the year, especially in multiplayer modes to look for exploits.

Better Matchmaking in Rec

  • Have matchmaking be fair and go by win% or skill tiers instead of only by overall
  • Remove bots
  • Give Pro-Am more incentives so that comp squads prefer Pro-Am
  • Fast start times (too many ‘backouts’)

Better Season Rewards

  • More rewards that affect gameplay rather than cosmetics
  • Virtual Currency (VC) as a reward (e.g. 100k VC for reaching Level 40)

Less VC Grab & Easier Grind

  • VC Prices continue to go up and up to create and customize a MyPLAYER build
  • NBA 2K25 should have less grinding, more playing / competing. The grind has taken over as the primary goal instead of squads being able to start competing and building chemistry faster, instead of waiting too long for player builds to get up to par.
  • Users will still buy VC because more builds will get created in this scenario
