NBA 2K23 Season 7 Launch | Courtside Report 2K23 (2023)

NBA 2K23 Season 7 Launch | Courtside Report 2K23 (1)

The NBA is filled with young talent, and the Oklahoma City Thunder have a stockpile of it. In the 2021 NBA Draft, the team selected Josh Giddey with the sixth-overall pick, surprising pundits unfamiliar with the Australian-born prospect’s talent. But it didn’t take long for the doubters to see why the Thunder chose him.

The 6-foot-9 point-forward is a magician with the ball in his hands, commanding the court with veteran maturity and poise. He excels at putting his teammates in positions to succeed and he’s unafraid to crash the glass to reel in rebounds. In his rookie season last year, Giddey averaged 12.5 points, 6.4 assists, and 7.8 rebounds per game, and he showed no signs of slowing down in year two. Across 76 starts in 2022-2023, Giddey led the Thunder to a record of 40-42, averaged 16.6 points, 6.2 assists, and 7.9 rebounds per game, and nearly earned his team a spot in the NBA Playoffs. No one expected him or the Thunder to have the success they had, but all eyes will be on this franchise’s future with Giddey being a part of their dynamic backcourt.

In Season 7 of NBA 2K23, silence the noise and realize your potential in The City (New Gen) and on board The G.O.A.T. Boat (Current Gen), much like Giddey. Chase greatness and all-new rewards as you set the standard of what’s possible on the court.

Invincible cards are the epitome of power and invulnerability; adding one to your lineup, let alone three or five, might be too much for any opponent to overcome. Dark Matter cards are special, but Invincible cards make any player virtually unstoppable, with no weaknesses to their game whatsoever. NBA 2K23 featured Tracy McGrady as the first Invincible card to be released, but more are coming in Season 7.

Begin Season 7 by adding the Level 1 Galaxy Opal Josh Giddey to your collection. The versatile, rangy guard can do it all, including helping you earn XP via agendas. As you climb the seasonal rewards ladder, you’ll also earn five other Galaxy Opal players, with a new 99 overall Dark Matter player as well. Players who successfully reach Level 40 will receive an Invincible Zion Williamson card to sky through the air with. The New Orleans Pelicans star forward is just as much fun to use in MyTEAM as he is to watch in real life, if not more so.

While Giddey and Zion headline this Season’s Level rewards you can earn new Dark Matter players as mode rewards in the Vault, Triple Threat Online Ball Drops, Clutch Time Wheel, Season Ascension, and the Draft. Dedicated Collectors will be pleased to learn that each NBA franchise’s All-Time players are being added as a new collection this Season.
