NBA 2K23’s MyCareer and MyPlayer suites have received a small upgrade from 2K22. thanks to new builds and badge tiers. Another upgrade that we were unaware of when NBA 2K23 released but do now is the existence of replica builds. What are replica builds and what can be done to get these builds? Let’s take a look.
What are replicas?
Replica builds are broadly builds that emulate what a full-fledged NBA player would look like in The City and MyCareer. However, these builds do not have the same accurate ratings as these current and former players in the rosters as they are nerfed and not really meta relevant.
One notable point about these builds, however, is that once created, you are presented with a screen showing that your MyPlayer is a recreation of a Superstar of today or the past.
These builds were first spotted by YouTuber Uncle Demi in September. From there, more and more replica NBA 2K23 builds have been spotted.

As of this writing, replica player builds are still being uncovered by members of the NBA 2K23 community. Because of this, this guide is a work-in-progress.
However, we do have stats attributes for many popular player replicas, including those for Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, and Steph Curry. Here’s a look at the attributes for these builds, courtesy of some nice folks from social media, YouTube, and Reddit (u/bsturck):
Put the ratings above in the MyPlayer build to uncover these replicas.
We should note that these builds only apply to current generation consoles (Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5). Those using old-gen versions of NBA 2K23 do not have the option to create a legendary or current NBA player replica build for MyCareer. And jersey numbers and positions must be accurate per member of the community.
