We'll take you through the full twelve-player lineup that looks set to make Flash Forwards one of the top promos in this year's game. You might be asked what all the hype is about, so let us talk you through why you need these players in your squad!
NBA 2K23 Flash Forwards release date
The Flash Forwards cards will be entering NBA 2K23 on Friday, 6 January. We expect them to be live in-game at around 8 am PT / 11 am ET / 4 pm GMT.
Flash Forwards will replace the Fireworks promo with packs in the store. The reason these players a causing quite the hype train in the community is that they tend to have ridiculously busted abilities and animations that make them impossible to deal with as a defender.
In previous 2K titles, these legends have been some of the most anticipated cards and can sell for crazy numbers in the auction house.
