NBA 2K22: Choosing an interview for Dominate The G in MyCAREER

If you take the path to the G League in NBA 2K22, one of your first quests will be Dominate The G, and it's got a few optional objectives.

You get the chance to hone your interview skills and get a few key boosts, but how those boosts benefit you will depend on which reporter you talk to and what answers you choose.

The City Map Location for each interview

If you've already made a decision, you'll need to know which location to head to as the quest markers aren't clearly identified on The City Map.

If you want to speak to Beat Reporter John Luck, head to a building with a sign that says "The Local News," and you can see the location below just southeast of the South City Vipers City Hall.

DONUT TIME: Head to the cafe if you're looking for Torres

Keep in mind that you can only speak to one, so don't initiate an interview if you're not sure it's the one you want to speak to.

Should you choose Beat Reporter John Luck or Lifestyle Reporter Andrew Torres?

The first thing you'll need to decide is which reporter to speak to, and they've both got their benefits.

Beat Reporter John Luck is the more traditional option, and he's going to ask you more traditional questions that deal with being flashy or being a team player.


By comparison, you can speak to Lifestyle Reporter Andrew Torres if you'd rather have a chat that centers more on your eventual brand focus.

While exact benefits will vary based on the answers, which are outlined below, in general you can get a bigger fans boost from the more mainstream option of John Luck.

That comes with a tradeoff though, as the answers which give you big fans bonuses cost you in some other areas, while Luck benefits Music or Fashion brands while causing less negative impacts.

If you're still not sure which one is right for you, take a look at the questions and answers you'll face and the rewards they can give you.
