NBA 2K23 MyTEAM Evolution “Evo” cards are a big part of your NBA 2K23 MyTEAM collection. Here’s what you need to know about them.
In NBA 2K23, MyTEAM is a game mode that allows players to collect player cards representing past and current NBA players. These player cards then represent versions of professional players at different times in their careers. Therefore, the cards could represent the same players with completely different stats. Cards depicting the same player won’t always play the same way, so getting cards that portray players at the peak of their careers will always be the chase cards for the entire collection.
Development charts, on the other hand, depict players at a time in their career when they are experiencing the greatest growth. In NBA 2K23, Evo Cards are player cards that track stats and have challenges tied to them – completing the challenges will unlock an upgrade that will promote the player card to a higher rarity (e.g., from emerald to sapphire rarity), increasing the player’s stats and overall card rating.
Most NBA 2K23 MyTEAM Evo cards have fairly easy challenges to complete. Most of the challenges are tied to skills that players are already good at. For example, Starter card Joel Embiid can transition from Sapphire to Ruby either by achieving a certain number of assists or dunks – two things Embiid is good at. Some evolution cards also have more than one progression option, allowing you to choose which stats the player card will increase based on the challenge you complete.
Remember though that after completing challenges, player cards will not evolve on their own. You will still need to manually go to the Evolution menu and manually evolve your player cards so that you receive their best version.
