Why Is the NBA Store Locked in 2K21?

2K21 continues the trend of stores being locked in MyCareer. Here’s everything we know about why the NBA store is locked and how you can still get the items you want.


We’re all familiar with the NBA Store in 2K21. It’s where you go to buy virtual clothes for your MyPlayer. But why is it locked? You can’t even browse the clothes, let alone buy them.

There are a few theories as to why the NBA Store is locked in 2K21. One theory is that 2K Games is waiting for a real-life NBA season to start before they unlock the store. This makes sense, as the NBA Store would presumably be selling real-life NBA merchandise, and there’s noNBA season currently underway.

Another theory is that 2K Games is waiting to see how popular MyPlayer mode is before they unlock the store. If there aren’t many people playing MyPlayer mode, then there’s no point in unlocking the store.

Of course, we don’t know for sure why the NBA Store is locked in 2K21. It could be for any number of reasons. But hopefully it will be unlocked soon so we can start buying clothes for our MyPlayers!

What is the NBA Store?

The NBA Store is a place where you can buy virtual currency for use in the popular video game NBA 2K21. The store is locked when you first start the game, and you must have an account with 2K in order to purchase anything from the store. There are a variety of items available for purchase, including player packs, booster packs, and individual player cards. You can also buy aesthetic items such as jersey and court customization options.

How to unlock the NBA Store in 2K21

The NBA Store in 2K21 is locked when you first start the game. In order to unlock it, you need to do two things: first, upgrade your MyPLAYER to Level 7, and second, complete at least one Challenge in The Park. Once you’ve done both of those things, the NBA Store will be unlocked and available for use.

The NBA Store is where you can buy clothes and shoes for your MyPLAYER. There is a wide variety of clothes and shoes available for purchase, so take your time and browse through everything that’s on offer. You can also buy MyPLAYER attribute boosts from the NBA Store. These attribute boosts will temporarily increase one or more of your MyPLAYER’s attributes, which can be helpful if you’re struggling with a particular aspect of the game.


While 2K21 does a lot of things right, there are still some areas that need improvement. One such area is the NBA Store, which is inexplicably locked for many players.

There could be any number of reasons for this, but the most likely one is that 2K is simply trying to drive more sales of virtual currency. By locking the store, players are forced to use VC if they want to buy any new items.

This is obviously a frustrating situation for many players, but there is a silver lining. Since the NBA Store is locked, all items in it are discounted by 25%. So if you were planning on buying something from the store anyway, now is a great time to do so!
