How to Activate Team Takeover in NBA 2K23

Team Takeover in NBA 2K23 has changed, which is nowadays more dependent on their team’s performance, with each player needing to do their part. Compared to previous years, a single player can get the Team Takeover for the whole team. In 2K23, every player needs to fill a part of the Takeover meter, and once every player has done their portion, the Team Takeover can be activated immediately.

The main difference between this year’s and the previous year’s activation process is that you don’t have to manually activate it. It will automatically begin once all the players have filled the meter. So, it is not mandatory to press the Right Stick as you did in the previous year.

Types of Leadership Skills

There are three types of leadership skills for the players to collect. The General, The TrailBlazer, and College.

The General Skills in NBA 2K23

In The General, you will get Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3, and Tier 4 skills. You have 59 skill sets in the category.
