NBA 2K20 MyTeam: New Frostbite Packs Feature Perhaps the Best Big Man Defender?

The NBA 2K20 development team released the MyTeam Frostbite series today. It includes a pink diamond Magic Johnson and pink diamond Anthony Davis. In total, there are 12 new players in these packs, and then there’s a 13th player who is the collection reward. These packs will be live for one week.

As for the best big man defender, that very well could be galaxy opal Mark Eaton, the collection reward for this series. He’s 7-foot-4 with 74 speed, 99 block, HOF Intimidator, Rim Protector, Heart Crusher, Defensive Leader and Tireless Defender. He even has gold Clamps, Interceptor, Chase Down Artist, Pick Dodger and Pogo Stick. This series is going to be insanely expensive for now so it’s a big ask to lock him in, but those are some nutty defensive stats.

Bottom Line

As with most promo sets, I think there’s probably some sneaky bad cards and sneaky good cards in here. I’m going to mess around with these guys over the next day or so and will be back with some deeper thoughts then. In the meantime, you can look at the cards over at 2KMTCentral.

  1. I'm at work so it's all cursory at this point, but straight off the bat I am not a fan of the font choice for "Frostbite." It's a little too island of misfit toys for me. Also, I know it doesn't matter, but that's a few too many warm-weather players for the theme (which, again, I know doesn't compute overall).

    These are valid point to me, I think overall this promo feels rushed and random.

    The only thing that I like about this pack, is that we got Prime Toine card.
    Snagged Walker for 15k on Xbox just now (good upgrade to the Chicago lineup). The theme filter also calls it "Winter" instead of Frostbite.
    Also, these packs are wacky expensive.
    Yeah can get the Evo ones for cheap for now after the change.
    I don't see a lot of budget monsters here (below diamond) but the top-end cards are very good.

    I think three of these top four players will be getting upgrades in the near future. I was actually expecting Magic to headline Flash Pack 3 (after Mike and Larry popped up in the first two) and maybe he will, but he's the one most likely to wait, imo. This Pelicans Anthony Davis seems like it can't possibly be top-tier AD, despite being a strong card overall, just by nature of being 2k20's headliner and the way the Lakers are playing. And Oladipo just got back into action and I expect him to heat up in the coming weeks+. (Curious what you think about his attribute spread, too, Chase.) Scottie sure seems like he's got a PD waiting in the wings based on his currently available cards and the badges on them.
    Pippen has that PD reward card, which I think is a reason they made this diamond so bad.
    I think the Dipo diamond is very good and probably a little bit of a sleeper selection. However, I haven't played as much MyTeam since this release because been getting a new PC and stuff so been sidetracked.

    Cheers to that. I finally topped a million MT and that felt fun. I've been logging in but not playing too much recently b/c I've run out of fresh content. The moments of the week challenges makes it seem like the NBA must be the most boring league in the world. It's sort of ridiculous the scant amount of things to do in MyTeam that aren't "play online in a single competitive pool." I created a Banana Boat lineup with Prime Boogie Cousins as the imagined C, and then a bench "modern day" banana boat lineup of Kyrie, KD and Deandre, with imagined participation from Kawhi and Klay (same 2011 draft class as Kyrie and we know Klay cuts loose -- not to mention Kawhi being a fun guy). After those chuckles have faded it's just waiting to see what happens over all-star break. The tone of the event and the season has already changed so drastically b/c of Kobe that hoops hasn't been the escape it was, and 2k isn't doing a great job with content to fill that gap, imo. It's the middle of the NBA season and it feels like the doldrums of MyTeam. MotW seem forgotten, dynamic duos happened once, the Porzingis Prime series was mainly a dud, Frostbite was sloppy at best (they renamed the filter but kept it alphabetically at the back where "winter" fell), ... my apathy is strong and it's a complicated relationship right now.
    I wish I could export the MyTeam cards I've collected and integrate them into custom rosters I could use in other modes. Maybe I'd have to lock them in or something in order to do so. I'd do it.
