After the end of the first season of NBA 2K21 “One Will Rise”, 2K Sports announced that “Next is Now” will start, the second season of the game that features many young players who are becoming the main focus of the league in recent years.
One of the young players who will have a new card in this second season is Zion Williamson, power forward for the New Orleans Pelicans who is also the cover athlete of the next-gen version of NBA 2K21 that will be released in November in the new consoles from Sony and Microsoft.
Changes have been made regarding the experience in this second season, since this time users will be able to get a diamond card while looking for the maximum reward.
Over the 42-day season, users will be able to earn these Young Star cards using experience gained from NBA MyTEAM games and challenges. Here is the list:
Zion Williamson 96 Free Agent
Luka Doncic 78, Gold.
Rui Hachimura 81, Emerald.
Duncan Robinson 85, Sapphire.
Jaren Jackson Jr. 88, Ruby.
Bring Young 90, Amethyst.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander 92, Diamond.
Blake Griffin 96, Pink Diamond.
Triple Threat Offline also has new rewards.
The Triple Threat online mode has received new content that allows players to get a Victor Oladipo Diamond card with 450 wins, as well as a Chuck Person diamond card, which you can obtain by opening the Strongbox.
In the same way, 10 Spotlight Challenges have been included that give as a reward a token and two Tip-Off packs of this second season, advantages that you must get to improve your team, especially if you want to buy 2K21 MT Coins and be able to acquire the best players and skills.
As if that were not enough, a Vince Carter themed match has also been included in the Personal Challenges section, in which you must score 42 points and three triples to get the reward.
Of course, don’t forget that you must enter the Vince-carter-game-winner code to be able to compete in this new challenge.
On the other hand, two new cards have been added to Limited and Unlimited modes. To get them you must form a team with players who have been selected in the draft among the first 10 positions.
If you manage to get all six rings with this team, you will receive a Pink Diamond card from Boston Celtics player Jaylen Brown as a reward in Limited mode, while you will receive a Pink Diamond card from Patrick Ewing, the legendary center of the New York Knicks, in Unlimited mode.
Lastly, 2K Sports also updated the Token reward market, adding players J.J Redick, Joakim Noah, Al Harrington, David Thompson, and many more.
