Looking at our overview of the first release of NBA 2K21 from Sunxuemei's blog

Composed of NBA 2K21 MT Coins a bunch of parks and areas, The City is practically a massive version of The Neighborhood. There are more courts, which can be nice, but the experts stop there. You still have to buy a ball for 25k VC simply to play with friends on a personal court, and the servers are still very shoddy. NBA 2K21 on next-gen sees a lot of improvements into the basketball sim, but ironically only improves the areas of the game which were already really excellent.

Looking at our overview of the first release of NBA 2K21, most of my cons are still current. MyCareer's story remains shallow, the online servers continue to be aggressively mediocre, and microtransactions are still intrusive. When you include the fact that 2K did not offer you free upgrades for existing owners, forcing them to buy the $100 version or buy it separately for $70, it is hard to say NBA 2K21 on next-gen is the much-needed salvation to get a continuously unsatisfactory franchise.

The NBA Draft happened on Wednesday night, and very frankly, taking into consideration the way COVID-19 has affected the development of NBA 2K21 and the league, I did not expect to find that the rookies added into the match until next month. The entire draft class has been added to the proper teams, and the trades which were made official with the league had already been upgraded.

2K also smartly utilized the scans from the rookies it used in MyTeam to get NBA 2K20 and added a few more to add a little authenticity to the upgrade. Obviously, due to COVID-19, 2K was unable to scan every participant. However, the developers didn't a pretty solid job utilizing their own create-a-player Buy 2K MT package to fill in the gaps because of the rookies they were unable to scan.
