NBA 2K18 Neighborhood Guide – Everything to Know

NBA 2K18 Neighborhood Guide

NBA 2K18 is finally out and that means it is time to dive into MyCAREER. One of the new changes to MyCAREER is the new social space called Neighborhood. In the Neighborhood you will find other MyPLAYERS, NBA players, shops, and a lot more. In order to help you better navigate the Neighborhood, I have put together this post. Check out NBA 2K18 Neighborhood guide below.

Check out our guide to NBA 2K19 Neighborhood.

G Training Facility

NBA 2K18 G Training Facility

Where is it?: Directly beside the Team Training Facility

What is it?: Like the name suggests, the G Training facility is the place to come in order to increase your level cap. Like the training gym in NBA 2K17, you will find a number of exercises inside the center:

  • Leg Press
  • Clean Weight
  • Squats
  • Ladders
  • Agility Hurdles
  • Battle Ropes
  • Bench Press
  • Box Jump
  • Sprint
  • Treadmill
  • Dumbbell
  • Medicine Ball
  • Gatorade Reaction

If you are not interested in working out, you can head to the the Gatorade Fuel Bar where you can use VC to buy consumables that give you increased Turbo.

Team Training Facility

Where is it?: Behind a statue at the end of the street

What is it?: The Team Practice Facility works a little different then it did last year, as you can now work directly on the badges you are interested in earning. Select certain drills nets you points which are then applied to badges you wish to unlock or make better.

Besides doing drills, you can also free shoot, but there appears to be no benefits to doing this besides practicing shot release.

MyCOURT High – Rise

NBA 2K18 MyCourt

Where is it?: When leaving the Team Practice Facility it is on your right (across from the theatre)

What is it?: The MyCOURT High – Rise acts very similar to the warehouse in NBA 2K17. Inside the MyCOURT you will find a full size court, a closet (for changing clothing), and a large TV to watch NBA 2K18 TV on. That’s about all there is inside the MyCOURT High – Rise.

The Venue

Where is it?: Directly across from your MyCOURT

What is it?: The Venue is where you will find different themed game modes (depending on the week). Sometimes there will be wager modes while other times House Rules and so on.

Dunk Off Court

Where is it?: Neighbors the right side of The Venue (when facing it)

What is it?: Throughout the Neighborhood there are a collection of mini game courts. The one closest to your apartment is the dunk off court. Here you have 30 seconds to make as many crazy dunks as you possibly can. If you get a high score of the day, it goes up on the scoreboard.

VC Sports Management

NBA 2K18 VC Management

VC Sports Management

Where is it?: Across from the dunk off court (right as soon as you leave MyCOURT High – Rise)

What is it?: This is the office of your agent. Your agent manages things like endorsements. After you play your first NBA game, your agent will start offering you sponsorship deals. The office is only visitable when your agents messages you to come see him. Besides these events, it remains closed.

T Shirt Kiosk

NBA 2K18 T - Shirt Kiosk

T-Shirt Kiosk

Where is it?: Near the Dunk Off Court you will see the T Shirt Kiosk (in front of the Pro – Am Team Arena)

What is it?: The T-shirt Kiosk allows you to create and vote on custom t-shirts. To create and buy T – Shirts, you must be at least overall 80. 

Pro – Am Team Arena

NBA 2K18 Pro - Am Team Arena

Pro – Am Team Arena

Where is it?: Across from the NBA Store (Beige brick building)

King of The Court

NBA 2K18 King of The Court

King of The Court

Where is it?: Head past the Pro – Am arena and make your way to the streets dead end. On the right you will see the court.

What is it?: Another mini – game. This time you play one on one to see who can reign as The King of The Court.

  17. sundoobie says:

    Thank you for this guide. I got dizzy running around the neighborhood trying to find mycourt to change my shirt objective. Can’t believe they didn’t include a navigation or map and just expect us to know where everything is. Mycareer mode’s neighborhood is trash in 2k18. What a waste of time running around and around. This is a basketball game yet they are pushing it to be an RPG.

    • enricofairme says:

      The Recording Studio is located in the alley on the right of the Foot Locker. Look for a door in the alley which leads to the Recording Studio. Guide has been update!

    I had no idea that NBA2k has been making such a push to provide so many other things to do in the game… that and encourage microtransactions.
