UNORTHADOX: Berry & Associates are the less traditional choice

They're the smaller agency by comparison, but their versatility gives them a huge edge when it comes to music and fashion.

If you're even remotely interested in focusing on your brand, particularly the music and fashion angles, Berry & Associates has a lot going for it.

Which is the best option for The Come Up: Draft Day?

Like many of the big decisions in NBA 2K22 MyCAREER, it ultimately depends on how you want to play, but whether you care about brands and VC are crucial.

THINK ON IT: You can meet both agencies and still wait to make a decision

Berry & Associates are going to be a major asset as you increase your brand strength and look for sponsorship in that way.

They also could give you more versatility if you're not confident you'll dominate in the NBA, as they make clear in the pitch that being the best player in the league isn't required to make good money.

Neither is a bad call, but you need to go with Berry & Associates if music and fashion are part of your long-term MyCAREER plans.
