Replaying the 2022 Finals in NBA 2K23 (Celtics vs Warriors)

Another year another 2K 🏀🏆⛹🏾‍♂️

It's been a while since I've played an NBA 2K game on launch day like this, but this year I'm in the mood for some hoops. I'm lucky that my brother preorders NBA 2K every single year and we game share on PlayStation, so I also gain access.

If you watch my videos, then you may have noticed that I wear a lot of basketball jerseys in them. You may have also seen this post about some of my jersey collection OR this post showing off my favorite jerseys that I own. After all of that, it is pretty obvious that I love some NBA action.

However, something has just been off with 2K for many years. The last time I remember playing the game religiously was 2K15, it's been quite some time since then. My college years were probably when I spent the most time playing these basketball games, which was even further back since I left college at the end of 2012.

We used to have options with basketball video games, with competitors such as EA Sport's NBA Live or NBA Street, but now all that remains is 2K and an occasional arcade-style basketball game that usually just isn't that good.

With 2K, the main focus is largely on MyPLAYER and creating your own player to live out their career. You have the option to take them out on the streets to compete against other created players too. It's evolved to include a lot of customization and even an open world to explore and cool NBA player stuff in. I can honestly say that I've never gotten big into MyPLAYER. Hopefully, I will this year though.

Usually, I am focused on regular old pick-up games and just having fun. Once I get good enough, I go online and do 1v1 matches in hopes of having a nice record to show off. The thing is, I've sucked at 2K for several years now and I seriously used to be so dominant. There are a lot of new gameplay mechanics that have been introduced in the last few years and I'm just behind. I haven't taken the time to get good again, but I think 2022-23 is the year I get back in the 2K groove.

In today's video, I will be playing my very first game of NBA 2K23. I decided to keep it simple and just replay the 2022 NBA Finals matchup of Steph Curry's Golden State Warriors vs Jason Tatum and the Boston Celtics.

Who will win in today's game? Watch to find out. I will be playing as the Warriors, but I'm also quite a bit rusty as I mentioned before.

I will also be sure to point out all of the critical differences from 2K22 that I notice while playing 2K23. I'm really hoping that they found better ways to implement the PS5's DualSense controller.

Comment below if you are a huge NBA fan like me. Will you be picking up NBA 2K23 this year?

I'm not an NBA fan and I've only played this game a couple of times with my friends. The truth is that I don't need to be an NBA fan to play this game, but playing basketball games doesn't appeal to me at all. But the graphics and gameplay don't look bad. I hope you can get back to your old days. Of course it's normal to lose today's game. Because you have to practice more. I'm sure you'll be back to your great old days soon!

I understand not being able to enjoy NBA games. It’s been awhile since I’ve had fun with one, but I’m thinking that this year I’ll get back to enjoying hoops.

The NBA games would be really nice and I need to give it a trial because I haven't played any game related to basket before lol.

It can be difficult to compete online when first starting, but luckily playing against the AI is an option.

I don't really follow the NBA, But I will jump on the bandwagon to support the Lakers! It's crazy how realistic the these games are. I used to play the NFL ones! Who do you have to go all the way this year?

Lakers could have a great year or another not so good one where they don't even make the playoffs, like last season.

Sadly, I think the Warriors will probably be in the championship again. They're the most dominant team of this century and they've managed to hold on to all of their great players such as Curry, Thompson, Green, Wiggins, and Poole. They’re totally stacked. There’s some other good teams, but it’ll be tough to compete with Golden State.

there must be differences between the two games how to expect also that you relive the last final is good too. I'm not a big basketball fan.

There are slight differences, never anything major with sports games. Sucks they've stopped innovating and instead just stick with what's been making them huge money for years.

good repetition of the 2022 NBA finals. He played with his brother and that of the Golden State Warriors was a good choice

It was a close game, but sadly the results turned out to be the opposite of the irl championship.

I use to play 2k myself but never became good at it. My skills were reserved for fifa and so I ended up not enjoying 2k. Nonetheless the graphics if 2k has always been outstanding. If you are good at the game, you will love it

I'm much better at FIFA, but used to be equally as good at 2K. I need to get back to my former glory.

I was pretty sad when I realized the file was nonexistent. I won that first game... second one didn't go so well.

I guess I like jerseys...

I am a fan of basketball and it’s true, today the best games of this sport are the 2k. The other ones aren’t as good. I’ve played 2k22 some times and the graphics are awesome…I’m waiting for 2k23.

Pd: you’ll get better practicing more. It’s normal

There really isn't any other option for a simulation basketball experience. Sucks there isn't competition to push 2K to be even better than it is.

NBA is just so cool and the games are pretty fun. Sounds like you have always been a fan of basketball games, much like me. I wish they'd come out with a new NBA Street game, but I doubt it will ever happen.
