2). Entrepreneur: à la Jessica Breland. Learn how to run your own business and become better at making money. Doing these jobs will, of course, be most impactful to your player’s Wealth.

3). Global Icon: Basketball has worldwide appeal. These jobs are focused on reaching an international audience — both for your personal Popularity and the WNBA Popularity. We had Diana Taurasi in mind for this one.

4). Fashion Icon: Did someone say Liz Cambage? Fashion matters in sports and is an important part of the lives of fans and players. Doing fashion icon jobs will help your own Popularity and often give a boost to your Wealth.

5). Influencer: Just like Breanna Stewart or Candace Parker, athletes are influencers and the jobs in this category will help you influence your fans and gain new ones along the way.

As you progress in these roles you’ll gain more WNBA contacts who send texts and help you out on your journey.

WNBA Features

This wraps up the career mode section for WNBA, but wait, there’s more. You can now enjoy the MyLeague counterpart, the MyWNBA game mode as well. The NBA 2K21 next-gen will allow players to control 12 WNBA teams and manage them in a full season.

Lastly, the developers haven’t forgotten about the online mode. The W online mode will allow you to pair up in team of 3 and battle against each other in multiplayer mode. However, this feature is exclusive to “The W” playing mode, regardless it’s an amazing to have this feature in the game.

What are the best WNBA MyPlayer player types in NBA 2K21 next-gen?

There are over 15 different player types, and each has its own strengths and weaknesses. Here, let’s take a look at which ones we think are the best, broken down by position.

1). Offensive Threat

Offensive Threat players will have good ball-handling, passing, and shooting attributes, and this type is versatile. Point guards, shooting guards, and small forwards can also use this type.

2). 3-Level Scorer

3-Level Scorer does give a boost to all shots, regardless if it’s inside the paint, a mid-range jumper, or a three-point shot. On top of that, it’s also a type that can be used with all positions, making it even more versatile than the Offensive Threat archetype.

3). Slashing Playmaker and Point Forward

Both types have good ball-handling and passing attributes, and finishing inside the paint is also a strong suit for this archetype.

4). Sharpshooter

The Sharpshooter player type can be used with all five positions on the court. This type will give players great attributes for mid-range and three-point shots, something that the 3-Level Scorer type, which is more balanced, doesn’t offer.

5). Post Scorer

Post Scorers, which can be either a power forward or a center, will be great at scoring with their backs facing the basket, meaning that you should get a much-needed boost when attempting a shot inside.

6). Lockdown Defender

The Lockdown Defender type should be perfect for players who want an extra step when guarding opposing players on the court, as those players will have great all-around defensive attributes.
