NBA 2K23: How to unlock Endorsements in MyCAREER

If you're wondering where Endorsements are at in The City, chances are you need to keep moving forward in NBA 2K23 MyCAREER.

In order to unlock access to Endorsements in The City, you'll first have to go through a series of earlier core quests.

First off, make sure to finish "Welcome to the League" in order to really kickoff the core quests and challenges in The City.

Finishing that will put you on course for It's a Cole World as you aim to win the Music District and Courting Calloway which focuses on the Fashion District.

You'll also unlock Not Your Father's Hot Dogs, which is the first in a series of quests leading up to Endorsements that also includes Uncle Bobby's World.

After completing Uncle Bobby's World, you'll unlock the Going National quest and gain access to all the core Endorsements in NBA 2K23 MyCAREER.

There are a handful of Endorsements that'll be disconnected from this questline that include magazine covers and a few others, but here we're focusing on the main group.

Endorsement Requirements in The City

Even if you're early in your MyCAREER journey, it's good to know ahead of time which Endorsements you might be interested in signing down the line.

In order to complete the Going National quest, you'll have to sign with a major beverage company, get yourself a shoe deal, and sign a national level sponsorship.

The "national level" objective may be the easiest as it seems most if not all of the options here will fit the bill, but the other two may take some work depending on how your MyCAREER has been going.

Each of these requires a set amount of Fans, which are earned through a combination of finishing quests and succeeding in your NBA games.

On top of that, you'll need two different Brand Levels at a given rating, and these can be upgraded with quests, gameplay on the court, dialogue options, and fashion walks.

Also keep in mind if you're prepping for these early that you can only sign one shoe deal at a time and they last more than a dozen games, so best to focus on just one of the shoe deals first.
