NBA 2K21 Next-Gen: MyNBA's nostalgic UI a hit with fans

2K has announced another huge overhaul for their new game, NBA 2K21.

We already know that The Neighborhood mode will be transformed into The City, and now 2K has announced that MyLeague and MyGM will be combined into the all-new MyNBA.

The new game mode is the most immersive franchise mode to date, but there's one particular visual aspect that gamers are particularly excited about...

An Unexpected Favourite

There were plenty of aspects for the NBA 2K community to get hyped about in the latest update, from a playable G League, to a revamped Bust or Boom system.

However, it's a returning UI feature that gamers seem to be raving over.

MyNBA's Nostalgic UI

2K's new-ish slide nav will allow players to bring up a navigator menu with a simple flick up of the right stick.
