For all of the faults in NBA 2K23, The Jordan Challenge is perhaps its most redeeming feature. First introduced in NBA 2K11, it’s a collection of Michael Jordan’s special moments, represented as playable scenarios. There are 15 challenges to complete, and you need to achieve different objectives to earn stars (45 in total).

You can unlock content like the UNC Jordan Jersey, Jordan Calf Sleeve, and the Jumpman Gold Necklace in MyCareer. The Jordan Coach Card, Jordan FA Card, and ’95-’97 Bulls Alt Jersey is earnable for MyTeam. However, you’ll need 40 stars to get them all, while 45 stars are needed for a Trophy/Achievement.

All challenges can be completed on any difficulty, so if you’re feeling the heat, knock it down to Rookie. Here are all of the different conditions that must be fulfilled in each match:

  • Match 1: A Star is Born – (1) Win the match, (2) Score at least 16 points, and (3) Get nine rebounds.
  • Match 2: Got Next – (1) Win the match, (2) Score at least 12 points and (3) Win by 15 or more points.
