Similar to various other sports games, one of the overarching goals in NBA 2K23 is to become the best basketball player of all time. Of course, to be the best, you need to have the highest overall rating possible. Which in the case of NBA 2K23 MyCareer mode, would be a 99 OVR.

In this guide, we will explore how to get a 99 OVR in NBA 2K23.

How to Get a 99 OVR in NBA 2K23

Grinding your MyPlayer up to that elusive 99 overall rating can be a grueling task, particularly if you’re looking to get there without spending any money. This is because to increase your rating in NBA 2K23, you need to spend VC, and even though there are various ways to obtain VC in the game, most players find it easier to just purchase some using real-life money.

Buying VC will certainly speed up the process and allow you to upgrade your player faster. However, even if you have an unlimited amount of VC, you will eventually hit a wall where you can’t increase some of your attributes. This is because you need to also have MyPoints in order to level up and increase your maximum overall rating. Since each of your MyPlayer’s attributes is capped at a certain amount.

This means that even if you have all the VC to spend, you won’t be able to max out every single attribute without acquiring MyPoints first. Which will effectively increase the number of attributes you can level up.

The good news is that earning MyPoints in NBA 2K23 is incredibly easy, as you will level up every couple of games, depending on your performance. Combining a high amount of VC with MyPoints is the only way you can upgrade your player to reach that pivotal 99 OVR in MyCareer.

VC is a little more difficult to acquire, but it can be earned by simply playing in MyCareer games, completing in-game challenges, and competing on a higher difficulty. You will also earn VC for reaching certain milestones and as endorsement incentives for accomplishing various objectives. Although, here are some more easy things you can do to get VC fast in NBA 2K23.
