The player background

The first major change coming to The W in NBA 2K24 can be found after creating your character. Before starting your career in the WNBA, 2K Games will provide you with two backgrounds for your player: The Prospect and the Undiscovered Gem.

If you choose the Prospect background, you will begin your career with a 75 OVR and be the #1 Overall Draft Pick. Your player will enter the WNBA as a former college star, with the media and fans well aware of her impact on the court.

However, if you choose the Undiscovered Gem background, you will start your journey in the WNBA with an 85 OVR, being an under-the-radar star who will surprise the league with great potential to become the WNBA MVP.
