If you're looking forward to the release of NBA 2K22, in particular when it comes to MyTEAM, you can start that grind before the game is even available.

NBA 2K21 still has a challenge rolling with potential NBA 2K22 rewards, and you don't want to miss out on this one.

In order to reap the rewards, you'll need to take on the legendary trio of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Dirk Nowitzki, and Kevin Durant.

First, in NBA 2K21 you'll receive a Diamond Kobe VI shoe card and 22 MyTEAM Tokens, but it's the potential for MyTEAM rewards in NBA 2K22 that make this can't-miss.

In NBA 2K22, you'll receive a special pack containing 18 cards, giving you a major edge on others when MyTEAM gets rolling at launch.

You won't have forever to take advantage, as this challenge expires on August 27, 2021 at 11:59pm PT, so make sure to tackle it before time runs out.

NBA 2K21 is still on Xbox Game Pass

If you don't already have NBA 2K21, you can keep watch for discounts on the title as the release of NBA 2K22 continues to close in.

However, some Xbox users may be in luck, as Xbox Game Pass subscribers can get NBA 2K21 for free via cloud or console.

If you haven't already tried it out, go ahead and download NBA 2K21 to load up MyTEAM long enough to knock out this challenge and snag your NBA 2K22 freebies.

It's worth noting that, unfortunately, only the current gen version of NBA 2K21 is available on Xbox Game Pass, with the next gen version featuring The City not added to the service.

However, that won't be an issue if you're just aiming to get your MyTEAM rewards secured, as MyTEAM is still available in full on the current gen version of NBA 2K21.
