The LeBron-Heat era heads to MyNBA

Last year, 2K introduced Eras to MyNBA. In it, NBA fans could re-live classic eras in basketball, from Michael Jordan’s dominance in the 1990s to Kobe and Shaq’s run with the Lakers in the early 2000s. This year, the 2010s are set to enter MyNBA in NBA 2K24.

Fans can re-live — and re-write — LeBron James’ run with the Heat, as well as see how the NBA Draft class of 2011 shakes up the league.

Additionally, 2K has added an “automatic aging transformation” that will see players’ models will change physically on a yearly basis to reflect the history of these athletes. What this means is, for example, Kobe Bryant will transform from his “Frobe” era in the early 2000s to a smooth-haired version as the years go on.
