NBA 2K23 MyEras: Who Has Cooked You?

When we first heard about the MyNBA Eras that 2K would be introducing in NBA 2K23, it was some of the most exciting franchise mode news we had heard about in a long time. Now that we’ve been able to play the mode the last couple weeks, it’s fair to say there’s the expected bugs and other technical issues that are hurting it a bit. However, one of my favorite things about it is that we’re getting to see all these players from other eras being experienced by more people.

Even though most of the legends were in the game before, you didn’t have a central way to interact with them over a prolonged period of time. In the past, seeing them in places like MyTeam was cool to an extent, but the players were usually controlled by other humans or you were not really seeing how guys like Kareem, McHale, Isiah Thomas, and so on operated on a night-to-night basis.

I did not think about it much before launch, but beyond the technical stuff, what could have sucked the life out of the mode would have been if the players didn’t play like themselves. The Jordan Challenge coming back put added pressure on the AI to showcase these players in an authentic way, and 2K has stepped up to deliver some amazing stuff here.

NBA 2K23 MyEras: Who Has Cooked You?

nba 2k23 myteam -16

This brings me to the thread I want to highlight, and it was a simple question asked by Chairman7w on the forums. Chairman7w asked, who has cooked you? Answering the question first, Chairman7W pointed out three players who owned them:

There have been three games where I got absolutely DESTROYED by the CPU using a certain player:

PATRICK EWING in the first Jordan Challenge
There’s absolutely NOTHING I could do to slow him down – just a true force of nature. I don’t recall his final numbers but it was well over 30.

TRACY MCGRADY in MyEra 2002 Kings Franchise
Playing against the Magic, I looked like a 4th grader chasing him all over the dang court as he went for 34 (6 min quarters). It didn’t matter how close my defender was or anything. Twos, threes — it didn’t matter. Just unstoppable.

GILBERT ARENAS in MyEra 2002 Kings Franchise
I took the L big time in this game. Once again, I watched helpless as The Hibachi proceeded to drop 7-9 from 3-pt range, and shot a disgusting 70% from the field, torched me for 38. Meanwhile, Antawn Jamison dropped 19 on me to boot. Even Bobby Sura got some on me. I slunked out of town like a whipped dog.

Our next ownage comes from ggsimmonds:

Shaq got me for 48 on 20 of 26 shooting.

You remember that year the Cowboys for whatever reason decided to play Megatron straight up and he torched them for 200 yards? It was like that.

My naive self went into this game thinking I was so cold on 2k and didn’t even need to bother going into coaching adjustments because no big man has ever dominated against me. Shaq was there like “only cause you haven’t went up against me in 2k23 yet”

Completely humbled me

What’s also fun about this is it doesn’t just have to be legends schooling you. 2K spent a lot of time (and always has) adding more signature animations, redoing signature shots, and working on ways to make stars stand out. The 24th Letter shows off AI Jokic ruining the Celtics here:

In general, bigs might be benefiting the most this year from all the love 2K has given to some of these players. Jokic can now do stuff like the above whether he’s in the AI’s control or being used by an OS user like we have here below:

Other bigs that have been ruining OS users include Kevin McHale. VDusen04 showcases the clip below and says simply:

Kevin McHale had me jumping around like a total dork.

R9Nald9 backs up VDusen04 by saying McHale is crushing dreams:

Jordan Challenge. USA vs NBA Stars.

McHale is just destroying me. Have replayed the challenge multiple times and can’t sniff a single digits loss let alone think of winning. The thought of winning by 15 has disappeared. McHale is absolutely torching me inside every single time.

Sticking with the Celtics here, it seems a lot of folks have had to deal with them in the Jordan Challenge and so OS users are sharing their nightmares:

OS user rupe sums up their time against the Celtics by saying:

Bird pump faked me so many times I pulled my controller’s groin.

OS user celticboy25 spreads the love around by calling out a bunch of players and talking about their love of MyEras in general:

Playing MyEra as the ’80s Pistons, I got torched in consecutive series by Jeff Ruland (Was) then Parish (Bos) then Malone (Phi). I’m position locked on C. Thanks to Thomas, we advanced to The Finals after a 7-game series. Now versus the Lakers in the Finals, Kareem is completely unstoppable. About to be swept…

Thomas went out with a knee sprain in Game 1 and it’s been three straight 30-pt blowout wins for the Lakers. Laimbeer is just not good enough to stop these elite big men (or maybe I just don’t have the stick skills). Wish like hell I could trade up to draft Hakeem. Regardless, it’s been a blast. MyEra is the best thing that’s ever happened to a sports video game. Wish other titles would adopt this type of mode.

And it’s a good point. Basketball has an “unfair” advantage in terms of being able to showcase signature style in more ways than any other sport, but The Show, Madden, and so on having this sort of thing would be amazing — assuming they try to put in the same sort of love to make those eras come alive.

At the same time, maybe we need to hope those franchise modes and signature styles level up enough first and foremost before introducing all these bells and whistles. Again, it’s not just that 2K made the MyEras cool, it’s that they were able to do this first and foremost with the current NBA to make guys like Ja Morant play like Ja Morant:

When Madden, or NHL, or The Show can showcase that sort of beauty by the AI, then they can level up to showing off the equivalent of their George Gervin finger roll from their respective eras:

So, who has cooked you? Don’t be ashamed to share.

    Game one of my 80s celtics mynba. Isaiah Thomas made me look like a newborn.
    Restarted mynba with a new roster that had the generics edited out. Isaiah Thomas made me look like a newborn. Lol
    Started a modern era MyNBA while I wait on a full roster set to start a Jordan era.
    Ja Morant completely obliterated me in my Knicks season opener.
    Also Isaiah Thomas in the Jordan challenge all star game. And of course Ewing.

    Terry Cummings(80s era) torched me for 42 pts. Inside, outside, double team. Did not matter, couldn’t stop him.

    That dude was awesome in real life - I was always a big fan of his.
    Bird. Larry is a MASSIVE problem. Dude just lit it up from every angle. Low post, mid, Three. Couldn't shut him down, so simply outscored him with MJ to make myself feel better.

    Luka Doncic has

    Doncic got me for 55 in my Raps season. Dude was completely unguardable, hitting deep threes with a hand in his face.

    7years into my Kobe era franchise my lakers went up against the defending champion New Jersey nets. In this timeline Richard Jefferson is a superstar and reigning finals mvp, but BENO UDRIH, yes BENO UDRIH on this night stole the show, he could not miss, apparently in this timeline he becomes a co-star/robin- ginobli type of guy. Went for 35 on me and scored all types of ways on me…it was amazing. I could not keep him out of the lane

    PATRICK EWING in the first Jordan Challenge
    There's absolutely NOTHING I could do to slow him down - just a true force of nature. I don't recall his final numbers but it was well over 30.
    .

    The Jordan modes seem to have some pre-written scripts or something to make stuff like this happen. Ewing hit two shots on me fading the deep corner out of bounds over the top of the backboard. The Larry Bird shot.
    I’d be interesting in knowing if anybody has won this challenge by double digits. Any time I pulled to 3 or 4 they scored automatically. I think Ewing missed 2 shots the whole game.
    Also had a hard time getting Jordan to even jump for a rebound, much less grab it... But have had no other issues with other players or modes. One of the goals is to get 9 boards.
    Same thing in the 2nd challenge. Started off and the stars wouldn’t miss. Then they were *** up until a built up a lead around 15 (goal is to win by 15) and then they wouldn’t miss again after that unless it started to dip to 11ish or something.
    But you can tell just by what the shots are. Aguirre and Woodson splashing Curry range jumpers just conveniently when I pushed that lead to 16 or 17.
    The obvious ones like most have mentioned Ewing, Moses, Mchale, Bird, etc. But the one I loved was Mark Price & Stockton & Malone both killing me in the PNR & PNPOPS! Jeff Malone got me too. They were a major problem & I loved every second of it! The details with players and how they captured them really is so dead on with most all of the players.
    This game & its depth is just incredible! The signature shots, layups, post game, player specific movements & running animations, along with the player reactions and celebrations are all so dope! Talk about nostalgia and bringing me back to my childhood! I have found myself smiling during games when getting cooked! I’ve been so caught up in games that I was up til 4am the other night in the Jordan Mode playing the all star game, then Vs The cavs & Pistons in full 12 minute games. I had no idea it was so late. Just got lost. I’ve had no time to even post on OS because I’ve been thoroughly enjoying this game more than any other. LOL! Btw, The defense in my era mode & Jordan mode is amazing!
    Lauri Markkanen cooked me for 28 points the other day in an OT thriller. Nothing I could do to stop this man

    Mann I’m still building my custom rosters but knowing I’m close to delving into the magic of this game just makes me smile in itself. Whenever I do play quick moments I just can’t believe I have this game to immerse myself in, for entire MyNBA seasons.
    I’m curious if anyone has tried to see how 98 Malone in the regular rosters plays compared to 91 Malone in the eras section? 98 Malone has a higher rating and better badges but I’m wondering if importing the dna of 91 Malone would make him play more realistic even in regular game modes? I’m importing DNA out of era’s players into my main custom roster simply because I know being newer and more prominent in this game, devs certainly got their play styles more spot on. I’m just wondering if that carries over to regular rosters too.

    Luka got me. Dude a real life nightmare. i tried putting different dudes on em and it didn't matter. It was a classic. We kept trading baskets. On the other hand I was Dame and I was putting in that work. Got the win.
    I'm on MC, and a big so I don't get COOKED per se. Bigs still can't really do anything v good defense IMO. However, I have gotten DUNKED ON, CROSSED BRUTALLY, and some dudes have made wild contests. I was v Gobert and I was havin trouble w/ him but I got a chance to dunk him and did it. Super nasty. He tried to get me back but it bounced out, twice. Anyway, gettin crossed by the CPU I got my lil inner GP on my shoulder like...

    Same as everybody with Ewing in first Georgetown vs UNC game, dude was a monster. Bird cooked me pretty good like everybody from everywhere. Loved seeing it though, he hit a step back fade from the side on me and a time out was called. Saw him walking to the bench and I could swear he had a Larry Bird walk to him...my thought was damn that's Larry and of course I loved it!
    Stockton and Malone was a major problem in that final Jordan challenge, damn I had to do that one a few times to get all 3 stars and the PNR they were using is a MAJOR problem.
    Isiah Thomas was dangerous, took over when you expected him to in my first MyEra game with the Celtics in the 80s. Also Kent Freaking Benson! yeah you read that right Kent Freaking Benson along with Isiah on the Pistons was a problem, never heard of him had to look him up to see if he was a real player on their roster in the 80s and he was. My Celtics pulled it out with help from Larry legend and Mchale and Parrish down low to win by 8. Loving this game!

    Love the Kent Benson shoutout. He was a former No. 1 pick and was infamously punched square in the face by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar after he hit Kareem with an elbow.

    Damn that was a cheap shot, yeah had a new found respect for Benson after getting worked and looking him up.
    Right now I’m at half against the 83 Bucks as the 83 Lakers and the whole Bucks team is cooking me. Fortunately I’m cooking them too. I’m trailing 31-30 at the half(6 min quarters).
    I play with Player-Lock... and it's just a whole sh*tload of chef's cooking in this kitchen lmao.
    Had my teammate Allen Iverson drop 38 points carrying ME to a win, I literally almost let him down blowing an 8 point lead late in the 4th with him on the bench catching his breath and he checked back in the game and wouldn't LET ME let him down :lol:
    Played against Shaq/Kobe and Shaq crammed 35/15 into my face with Kobe smashing another 43 points on top of it.
    Melo lit me up for 33.
    Hakeem the Dream as my teammate gave me a wonderful 25/14.
    Ewing of course is a machine going off for 41/12 in my Jordan Challenge.
    This game the CPU stars play LIKE the stars, whether they're CPU teammates or CPU opponents... it's game changing and immersive.
    Superstar MyNBA as the Pacers.
    I play 2K as a NBA power fantasy, take a poverty franchise, give them an unrealistically great created player, then play 82 games at 12 minutes quarters across several seasons. Love it.
    Playing the Nets last night. Halliburton is shooting 30% in the season outside the paint - and so are all my jump shooters...
    TJ Warren dropped 40 on me. Are you kidding me? Is this the bubble? He COULD NOT MISS from behind the arc - while KD went 1/17 in the first half,

    Love seeing everyone's experiences shows 2k really did their thing!
    I went into Denver with my Birdsong and Williams led Nets.
    Alex English cooked for 55. figgin 18ft pick and pops, floaters, nothing I did could slow him down. At least Buck Williams had 20/20 but we still lost by 30.
    Playing My Era as the 80s Pistons, I got torched in consecutive series by Jeff Ruland (Was) then Parrish (Bos) then Malone (Phi). I’m position locked on C. Thanks to Thomas, we advanced to finals after 7-game series vs Celtics and Sixers. Now vs Lakers in the finals Kareem is completely unstoppable. About to be swept….
    Thomas went out with a knee sprain in game 1 and it’s been 3 straight 30-pt blowout wins for the Lakers. Laimbeer is just not good enough to stop these elite big men (or maybe I just don’t have the stick skills). Wish like hell I could trade up to draft Hakeem. Regardless, it’s been a blast.

    That's a heartbreaking injury boss!!
    Did an expansion modern team with a bunch of fan-favs near retirement (Melo, Howard, Rondo, etc.) I was dead last in the playoffs but there we were! (literally just happened by luck to be there don't know how we made it lol) and had to play Philly.
    Got cooked for 3 straight games. Just as we should've, but Harden goes down and leaves Game 3 late in the 2nd quarter... we got it close... but it was too much.
    Harden misses Game 4, we rally late and win... Harden's missing for Game 5....we win another tight game.. down 2-3 but a window is open. I was so excited that we might have a chance and didn't want to spoil the moment of him either coming back or not coming back that I never looked at his injury diagnosis...
    But then Harden comes back Game 6 and they blow us out of the water :lol::lol::lol::y5:
    Ja Morant absolutely torched me in myCareer. I can’t remember his line exactly but it was a lot.
    It got so bad that when I had team takeover I had to switch off ball - this led to him picking my team apart and finding Dillon Brooks for the game winning three :/

    He is relentless. If I was slow to pick him up in the half court he was at the rim in two seconds or less. I love this on court cam but I lost him for a second here and it got my whole team dunked on haha.

    After getting swept by the ‘83 Lakers (are 4 games were absolute blowouts) I offered a mega-trade to the Bulls who were picking 2nd in the draft. Basically Kelly Tripucka, one of my 1st round picks this year, and 2nd round picks for the next 3 years in exchange for their #2 overall pick. They took the deal and I draft Hakeem. I snagged Jerome Kersey with my other 1st rounder and now I’m looking for a return trip to the finals next year: PG Thomas, SG Vinny Johnson, SF Kersey, PF Laimbeer, C Olajuwon…. Only problem is the Sixers somehow ended up with 2 lottery picks and got MJ first overall and Otis Thorpe. Sixers will be hard to stop with Moses, Dr J, MJ, Thorpe, Mo Cheeks, etc… loving this game!!

    THAT'S what I love about the My Era's stuff. It's the Ultimate "What If" NBA Universe. And you can keep going back to it, over, and over, and over....in the different eras and trying different scenarios and playing for years to see what you can do with different teams. Amazing depth and long term playability. Insane!!
    Third year of Bird/Magic era rookie Ewing cooked my Bulls for 57 in his debut game. Problem for them was that MJ took that personal and put in 30 points in the 4th for 63 and the win. "What if" MJ owned the Knicks just like real life. Love this game.

    Joe Dumars just cooked me and bad, along with Isiah Thomas! They are really bad boys, i got fouled with MJ on 2/3 drives.

    I feel that in my soul lol. Did the same to me. Dumars was owning me on both sides. It seemed like every time MJ touched the ball he was grabbing the ball and locking me up for a jump ball. Drove me crazy lol.
    I was playing a play now game the other day, trying to get some sliders that feel good for me. I was the Thunder playing Golden State. I opened up a 14-4 lead, started thinking it was too easy. Suddenly, Steph hits a 3. And another 3. And another. Long story short, dude was 8 of 9 from 3, 29 total points in the first quarter. He even hit a DEEP cocky pull-up on me. They ended the first quarter up 41 to 28.
    In all my years of NBA 2K, I have never seen a CPU have a single player go off like that. It was insane.
    MyCareer PG on Superstar mode Ja Morant killed me for like 56 points. I had 67 perimeter defense and mid 60's speed acceleration and it was just impossible to stop him. Constantly blowing by me and had to just double him.
    Sort of the opposite, but 02 Pistons defense is no joke. First time all season I've been held under 80 points and on 37% from the field. They limited Jordan to 5-15 from the field, and Big Ben had me scared to attack the rim with Francis.
    I ended up settling for a lot of low percentage jumpers instead.
    On the other side of it, Rip was a midrange assassin going for 36. If he got any space he was firing, and they kept running him off screens all game. One in particular has the SF run off a screen, but then immediately after Rip runs off the same screen. That was getting him open looks all game.
    I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this thread and will be front paging it today. Thanks for a great thread starter OP, and thanks to everyone sharing all their clips and stories. It's truly ruled. I hope it keeps going.
    Ja had me on skates. So I doubled and Bane and JJJ had some 3 point shooting practice. I decided to trade for the 1988 Pistons.

    Yeah, the Grizzlies will be my rival this year with the duell of Fox vs Morant being the highlight of that show.
    Last game he scored 38 against me, with nearly everything coming from inside the arc with just one three going in. The first game he had 42.

    That fast break was just the tip of the iceberg.
    Man what can I say I got a 91-92 myEra with Golden St. and second American of the season was against the Blazers. Clyde The Glide went insane. He was a one man wrecking crew jump shots check, layups check and dunks. He destroyed Tim and Mitch.
    In the early Jordan challenges I was decimated by Ewing and Bird
    In the Kobe Era franchise I'm playing, Vince Carter lit me up. Shot 71% from the field and hit a ton of 3's.
    Jordan Era - 1991 Isiah Thomas. I don't recall his exact stat line but heh torched me from every which way. First game I really felt like there was nothing I could do to stop an opposing player. Good stuff. I'm loving this game.
    Jordan Era.
    Just had a game against the Warriors with the Bulls. Lost 101-118.
    Tim Hardaway just completely torched from beginning to end finishing with 55 points and 12 assists. He shot 24-33 and just always managed to get separation and sinking his shots.
    Jordan had 38 points and 10 assists, Pippen 31 points. But nothing was good enough to get the better of the Warriors and their Hardaway-Mullin 1-2 punch.

    There have been three games where I got absolutely DESTROYED by the CPU by a certain player:
    PATRICK EWING in the first Jordan Challenge
    There's absolutely NOTHING I could do to slow him down - just a true force of nature. I don't recall his final numbers but it was well over 30.
    TRACY MCGRADY in MyEra 2002 Kings Franchise
    Playing against the Magic, and I looked like a 4th grader chasing him all over the dang court, helplessly as he went for 34 (6 min quarters). It didn't matter how close my defender was or anything. Twos, threes... it didn't matter. Just unstoppable.
    GILBERT ARENAS in MyEra 2002 Kings Franchise
    I took the L big time in this game. Once again, I watched helpless as The Hibachi proceeded to drop 7-9 from 3pt range, and shot a disgusting 70% from the field, torched me for 38. Meanwhile Antawan Jamison dropped 19 on me to boot. Even Bobby Sura got some on me. I slunked out of town like a whipped dog.

    Embiid just dropped 32 on me. Mix of post ups, pull ups, turn arounds and 3s.
    Have we ever been obliterated by bigs in a 2K like this before? It's so good. Im having to send doubles.

    I haven't, and because of that it makes it DRASTICALLY different when doing a fantasy draft or trying to trade for an All-Star big for my team because they are actually, for the first time, individually DOMINANT.
    1992 Western Conference Playoffs... Magic Johnson is a beast.'
    The Lakers are up 3-1 to the Blazers and want to go back to the Finals for a rematch of the Bulls but the Blazers have something to say about it. Magic is going crazy, his ball handling, dribbling and passing is absolutely insane.
    He did this no look behind the back pass to Divac which had me just frustrated like wtf I had you! Terry Porter and Clyde Drexler are NOT going though.. pulling in 35 EACH cause Danny Ainge isn't hitting.
    3 OTs...157 -154. Blazers Survive, for now. Magic wants another ring and doing everything to get there my goodness.

    Can't say I have, and I love getting destroyed. It adds so much to the strategic element.
    I got a date coming up with the 02 Spurs and expect them to bully and destroy me all game. Its going to be awesome lol
    in a bit of a plot twist.
    In my Jazz franchise, I traded for a big who can play a bit of back to the basket, and got Segun (sp?) from the rockets.
    To make the salaries work they threw in Garrison Matthews, 6'5" SG and just a spot up shooter.
    He has been money for me off the bench. He's shooting 52% from 3 for me ... and he gets so hot that i can pumpfake with him, and then dawdle his slow 50 rates speed *** into the lane and lay it up uncontested.
    I think he's like 72 rated ... but his stroke is so pure, i cannot hit anything but green with him.
    Ewing put up 20 pts against me in the 1991-1992 starting point, just in the first quarter. Lol. He finished with 34 or so on the night but he was destroying me and only cooled down due to coming out of the game for foul trouble.
    Tim hardaway also cooked my pg all game long and went off for 30 some points. He abused me all game long.
    James effin Terry took apart my team in the second half. He finished with 28 points, but only had 5 points at halftime.
    He had his way with me in that second half.
    Recently played against 02-03 Spurs & Tim Duncan absolutely killed my Sixers squad. 35 points & 25 rebounds. It really could have been worse but Parker & Ginobli were trying to get involved.
    Ewing a mf menace in the first jordan challenge.
    Even triple team could not stop him smh…

    I got got by Hibachi.
    Arenas took over the 4th quarter and OT enroute to scoring 41 on me.
    He is deceptively fast and great at creating space for his jumper, which he seems quite willing to take. He dropped three 3s in the OT period to win the game.
    T-Mac,T-Mac,T-Mac. I was playing my Sixers era. First game against magic and T-Mac showed up and showed out. Everything seemed like a nothin but net shot. He was pullin up 3's on me. I was so glad when he finally subbed out the game.
