The Best Centers in NBA 2K22 MyTeam

Center is one of the most important positions in basketball, and the same is true in NBA 2K22. Besides the obvious paint protection, centers play an integral part in the offense both inside and outside the 3-Point line. Here are the best center cards in NBA 2K22 MyTeam right now:

  1. Pink Diamond David Robinson: A center that can do it all. Although he doesn’t have the great jumpshot like Embiid, Robinson is an elite defender on the interior and perimeter.
  2. Pink Diamond Hakeem Olajuwon: Expensive, but a true all-around big. His jumpshot is a bit slow, but Hakeem has the post game, perimeter shooting, three level defense, and even some playmaking.
  3. Pink Diamond Joel Embiid: The best shooting center in the game. Great in the post, on the perimeter, and protecting the paint. Is going to be expensive, but he is by far the best big in the game right now.
  4. Diamond Bill Russell: The typical Russell card with dominant defense and athleticism, but with glitched shooting. Although his jumpshot is a bit slow and he lacks some key badges, Russell is still a great stretch five.
  5. Pink Diamond Shaquille O’Neal: A Shaq card that will be dominant finishing in and defending the paint, but he can’t shoot or dribble.

Best Budget Centers

Budget players are a must for any no money spent players or those with limited MT budgets. Given this, we have compiled a list of the best centers you can get in the sub-5K range.

  1. Ruby Zhi Zhi Wang: A stretch big that can handle his own on defense. Has a nice jumpshot and even Limitless Spot-up, but is going to be a bit slow and struggle at perimeter defense.
  2. Amethyst Dino Radja: Not as good as past years’ Dino’s, but he’s still a good defender and finisher with some playmaking badges to boot.
  3. Ruby Seung-Jin Ha: At 7’3″, he’s pretty much just a big body center to defend the paint. Struggles at pretty much that and a bit of interior finishing, but he’s super cheap.

How to Win Every Triple Threat Online Game in NBA 2K22 MyTeam

Triple Threat is an extremely competitive game mode with nice prizes, making it one of the best game modes to make MT, Tokens, or other things. Here’s my formula for winning most TTO games:

  • Run a lineup of players you’re good with. You also want one player you dominate with, either as a shooter or finisher. The other two players should be able to shoot in most cases.
  • Use your dominant player to try to score. Call a Quick Isolation from the menu, do your thing with your favorite player, and it that fails, you can kick it to a teammate for a 3 or easy drive.
  • Play both on-ball and off-ball defense. Sometimes on-ball is better, sometimes off-ball is. Figure out the perfect mix and shut down the other team.

These may seem like easy tips, but this year there is no foolproof way to win. This formula provides the method I used to win 80% of my TTO games without using any exploits or “tryhard” methods.

How to Make Tokens Quickly in NBA 2K22 MyTeam

Tokens are a valuable asset in NBA 2K22, with a whole market devoted to spending them to get top-tier players. In this post we detail how to make tokens in the quickest and most efficient way.

  1. Triple Threat Online: Tokens are on a lot of boards after games, and you can easily racks up a ton of tokens from playing quick 3v3 games. Winning games is your best bet to maximizing your token earnings.
  2. Domination: Domination, especially All-Time and Historic, earns you a lot of tokens. You earn over 600 for playing 100 games, a value only matched by TTO games (TTO doesn’t give you player, badge, and other rewards, though).
  3. Challenges: A lot of the Spotlight challenges and weekly challenges give you tokens for winning them, but the amount is so miniscule we don’t recommend this method for token-earning only.
  4. Completing Card Sets: Completing Current NBA Team sets nets you 10 tokens. This method is MT-expensive, so going about it requires a trade of MT for tokens. It’s not worth it in most cases.
