Introduction:

Welcome to another year of grinding in the NBA 2K series this year. Luckily you won't be having to play online head 2 head but the G.O.A.T trophy is still here from 2K19. You can start with either MyCAREER or MyTEAM as there is no set order to obtain these trophies.


Walkthrough:

Step 1 (Optional):

The majority of trophies are earned in either MyCAREER or MyTEAM but you can start in Quick Play if you want to get a few trophies early with 2 controllers, the following can be unlocked in any mode where you play with the full team however you will likely do this in Quick play or MyTEAM. I suggest doing these in Quick Play if you have 2 controllers but if not, you can do it in MyTEAM as you will be playing a large amount of games and will eventually have a great team.

At the end of this step, you will have earned the following:

Makin' Adjustments
Green Light
Green Zone
It's Easy Being Green
Winning
Make A Point
Make A Statement
Turning Point
The Rest Is Just Academic
Off To The Races
Am I A Joke To You?
Keep Your Distance
Net Gain
Dirty Work
Spreading The Love


Step 2: MyTEAM

As I have stated, you can go in any order you like but the majority of your time will be in MyTEAM so I would suggest starting their first. The ultimate goal in MyTEAM that will be the platinum prevent for many people will be the Ultimate Collector as you need 2900 cards. This will take a lot of time/money or both depending on the route you take. The division trophies and dynamic duo trophy can be done in a single game each.

At the end of this step, you will have earned the following:

MyATLANTIC MyTEAM
MyCENTRAL MyTEAM
MySOUTHEAST MyTEAM
MyNORTHWEST MyTEAM - Glitched
MyPACIFIC MyTEAM
MySOUTHWEST MyTEAM
Geologist
Dynamic
The More The Merrier
Ultimate Collector


Step 3: MyCAREER and Cleanup

The remaining trophies will be done in MyCAREER, you will likely need to make a few different builds to make each trophy easier. Remember you can adjust the quarter length to 12 minutes to make it easier to get the required stats for each trophy.

At the end of this step, you will have earned the following:

The Butcher
The Baker
The Candlestick Maker
Dirty Dishes
Doing The Dishes
Dishwasher
Collector
Hoarder
Second Chances
Play It Again, Fam
Dead End

51 trophies ( 10  38  )

  • Earn every trophy in NBA 2K20

    Earn all the other trophies, to get this one.

  • Score 10 points in a MyCAREER game

    See The Candlestick Maker

  • Score 20 points in a MyCAREER game

    See The Candlestick Maker

  • Score 50 points in a MyCAREER game

    I suggest combining this with the I Just Can't Stop Scoring trophy, because you will need 45 points for that trophy anyway. You can use any built to do this trophy but I suggest making a sharpshooter and start upgrading your 3 Point attributes and any other scoring attributes.To make this trophy easier, set the game to 12 quarters and play on pro difficulty:

  • Get 5 assists in a MyCAREER game

    See The Dishwasher

  • Get 10 assists in a MyCAREER game

    See The Dishwasher

  • Get 15 assists in a MyCAREER game

    For this trophy you need to get 15 assists in 1 game. The best way to achieve this is to play on pro with 12 minute quarters and don't shot the ball only look to pass. I did this as a center for the 76ers but you can do it with any type of MyTEAM. To improve your chances try to have a high teammate chemistry so they will give you the ball often so you can then set them up for assists. If you are having trouble with this trophy you can upgrade your passing attributes:

  • Get 10 defensive rebounds in a MyCAREER game

    See Hoarder

  • Get 20 defensive rebounds in a MyCAREER game

    For this trophy you need to create a glass cleaner, preferably a Center or Power Forward. You'll want to play with 12 minute quarters and pro difficulty you could also buy rebounding boosts from the boost stand. When a shot is going up you will want to box out your opponent with . If you are still having difficulty you can try upgrading the following badges Box, Rebound Chaser, Worm and the next 2 could also help Defensive leader (improved team defense should lead to more misses) Intimidator (improved defense causes more misses):

  • Get 3 offensive rebounds in a MyCAREER game

    See Hoarder and Play it Again, Fam

  • Get 5 offensive rebounds in a MyCAREER game

    See Hoarder

    Much like Hoarder, you need to create a glass cleaner but this time you are going for offensive rebounds. You'll want to upgrade your offensive rebounds attribute and upgrade the same badges as for hoarder. You need to get under the hoop before your teammates take the shot:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5qYpVssLF2E

  • Get 3 blocks in a MyCAREER game

    See Fly Swatter

  • Get 5 blocks in a MyCAREER game

    You need to create a rim protector for this trophy. You will want to upgrade the blocks attribute and also purchase the blocks boost if still having issues. The badges you should upgrade are Rim Protector followed by POGO and Chasedown Artist. To improve your chances set the quarter length to 12 minutes and keep the difficulty on pro:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ScVw9hwvmxM

  • Get 3 steals in a MyCAREER game

    See Keepers

  • Get 5 steals in a MyCAREER game

    You need to create a lockdown defender for this trophy and upgrade your steal attribute. On Pro you can try spamming square and should be able to pick up a few steals or you can try to jump in front of passes you think are coming to the person you are guarding with . The main badge you will want to upgrade is pick pocket, because it helps earn more steals and less fouls called against you. The secondary badge to upgrade is interceptor which will help with trying to intercept passes in the air. You need to set the quarter length to 12 minutes.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0Ihs8J__cQ

  • Make 5 free throws in a MyCAREER game

    See It's Free Real Estate

  • Make 10 free throws in a MyCAREER game

    The best way to draw fouls is by driving to the hope repeatedly. You will want to improve your free throw shooting attributes and use boosts to shooting if still having difficulty. You will want to play with 12 minute quarters to improve your chances of going to the foul line:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KSM20jpQxLg

  • Make 5 three-pointers in a MyCAREER game

    See I Just Can't Stop Scoring

  • Make 10 three-pointers in a MyCAREER game

    See I Just Can't Stop Scoring

  • Make 15 three-pointers in a MyCAREER game

    You need to create a sharpshooter and upgrade his 3 point shooting attribute and 3 point boosts. You will want to build up your teammate chemistry so they will pass you the ball when use demand it with . You need to set the quarter length to 12 minutes to maximize your chances but I also recommend combining this with the Candlestick Maker trophy.

  • Be named Player of the Game in MyCAREER

    This should come naturally while going for the One Man Show and Candlestick Maker trophies.

  • Score or assist on half your team's points in a MyCAREER game

    As the description says score or assist on half the teams scoring. When I tried with assists plus points it didn't pop for me so I had to do it with points. I got my teammate chemistry to 100% by getting good teammate grades and answering questions that put the team first. This way they always give you the ball when you demand it with . Since I would receive the ball every time I could take threes, this trophy can be difficult to achieve until you become a starter who play gain a lot of minutes:

  • Record a double-double in a MyCAREER game

    See To Go

  • Record a triple-double in a MyCAREER game

    See To Go

  • Record a quadruple-double in a MyCAREER game

    This is the hardest trophy in MyCAREER, because you must have 10 or more points in 4 of the 5 Categories below:

    Points
    Rebounds
    Assists
    Blocks
    Steals

    It goes without saying you should set quarter length to 12 minutes, and pro difficulty. You will either want to focus on 10 steals or 10 blocks as its very unlikely you can get both in 1 game. I was able to achieve this with my Glass Cleaning Rim Protector I focused on getting blocks and the rebounds came while trying for the blocks. On offense, try to get the 10 assists or points 1st then focus on the other category.

    See Fly Swatter, Keepers and Hoarder for more tips.
