How to change MyPLAYER nickname from MP in MyCAREER

NBA 2K23 MyCAREER will once again bring players under the MP moniker, but if you’re tired of that moniker, there’s a glimmer of hope.

We have detailed how to change your MyPLAYER nickname in NBA 2K23 MyCAREER and how this change will affect gameplay.

NBA 2K23: How to Change Your MyPLAYER Nickname from MP in MyCAREER

If you were hoping that this year’s NBA 2K23 MyCAREER would move away from the oft-hated MP moniker, there’s both good news and bad news.

When MyCAREER starts with no option to edit or change the nickname and it looks set in stone, something is hidden in your Settings.

Once you are in MyCAREER, click Start to open the menu and open the tab to the far right, then enter MyCAREER Settings.

TAKE YOUR CHOICE: You can always go back and change these settings again

Here you will see the third entry in that menu which is “Secondary Name” and the list of options for your MyPLAYER is quite extensive.

It’s no different than the nicknames included in WWE 2K22 where you can have ring announcers and use commentary for your Superstar.

However, here is the catch “Second”, which advises that you cannot completely remove the MP name in MyCAREER.

Does changing your nickname change the dialogue and commentary?

After you make the above changes, since “MP” is the default secondary nickname in MyCAREER Settings, you will receive different Comments during matches.

This is good news, as the Comment will change to the second newly selected Nickname during your actual matches, but the dialog will not do so elsewhere.

The only possible reason for this is that 2K didn’t want to pay singers to record voice lines for every available nickname option.

Commentators and announcers already have to record a massive amount of dialogue for these games to include all the different variations of players across the league.

However, the voice actors hired to record dialogue for NPCs throughout the story of MyCAREER have a very brief set of lines.

Instead of expanding even with basic options, you’ll stop hearing MP from other MyCAREER characters despite changing your secondary nickname.
