NBA 2K20: How to Change Name

NBA 2K20 released earlier this week and was immediately slammed with review bombing from the audience community. Official reviews are still slowly trickling in, but so far seem to be split on whether the new installment in the basketball franchise has anything fresh to bring to the table.

Regardless of what the NBA 2K20 reviews say, there are still plenty of 2K Sports fans who are planning to tear through the game in the coming weeks and make it a regular player in their rotation or the coming year. NBA 2K20 has a star-studded career mode cast that is sure to see some play throughs from franchise-loyal fans. As players working through the My Career mode, they may decide that they aren't feeling the nickname Che. Not to worry, there's a way to get around that.

Che is a pretty rad nickname, but don't feel bad if it's just not for you. Changing the nickname isn't very difficult, but it does require a few steps. First of all, players need to progress far enough into My Career Mode that they've made it to the NBA. If you're in the NBA and have access to the Neighborhood, then that's far enough.

At this point, players need to enter the Settings Menu. Just hit Pause and then navigate to Options/Quit. From this point, click Settings and then navigate to the section that allows you to customize your nickname, social media handle, and other minor tweaks.

That's all there is to it. After making this simple change, players should notice that they are referenced by their new nickname during the remainder of the games in My Career mode. It's a little silly to have to play through the college section with the default nickname, instead of having the option to change it from the start, but there doesn't seem to be any way around that for the time being.

The NBA 2K20 My Career Mode seems to be fairly well-received so far, though it hasn't generated as much hype as the FIFA 20 career mode changes.
