NBA Live reference Easter Eggs
In a conversation about James Harden, the player comments that he can’t invite Harden over because he “plays a different game.” This is most likely a reference to the NBA Live series, as NBA Live 18 featured James Harden as its cover athlete.

Secret location objective Easter Eggs
In the shootaround mode, there is a “make a shot from the secret location” objective. This secret spot also appeared in the previous games, where there used to be a pool table in that area.
Earn More VC Hints
VC is important, but sometimes the amount you get from playing games seems like it’ll never add up to what you need. If you’re trying to earn VC, there are a few other things you should keep in mind.
- First, watch the official social media accounts in case they drop codes that will reward you with VC.
- Second, check your objectives each day. These daily objectives are often simple tasks that you can perform for a bit of bonus VC.
- Third, if you have access to a mobile device, you can use the MyNBA2K19 app to play little mini-games that give you additional VC.
These are just a few simple things to help boost your VC as you wait for higher payouts from sponsorships, online games (500 VC per game just for playing), etc.
Beginning Tips Hints
You can change the default camera perspective from the Camera options.
Use training mode to get used to the controls when you’re starting out, and go back to brush up on your skills whenever you need practice or what to try something new.
When you’re playing defense, a blue arrow will indicate the player you’re guarding.
While guarding, you can hold the left trigger to put up your hands and block the opposing player.
