MyTEAM

Season 7 welcomes a new batch of MyTEAM cards for you to add to your ever-growing collection. This Season features a handful of modern-day NBA stars, sharp-shooting guards, and even an NBA legend.

Turn up the heat with the Level 1 Free Agent Jimmy Butler card and cook defenders with his impressive array of mid-range and low-post skills. The Miami Heat’s star forward is the heart and soul of their team—who’s to say he can’t be the driving force for your roster? Butler plays with tenacity on every possession and has plenty of experience in the clutch. Few players can match his competitive energy and he’s unfazed by confrontation. If you’re searching for a proven All-Star with a well-rounded game, look no further.

Whether you build around Butler or another one of your NBA stars, every lineup needs a player that can get hot and fill up the stat sheet. Brooklyn Nets guard Cam Thomas has a knack for lacing 3s and erupting for 30 points a game. Insert the gifted offensive player into your lineup with the Level 10 Pink Diamond Cam Thomas card and reap the rewards.

One of the most underrated roles of a team is the enforcer and it’s rare that you’ll find one across the current NBA landscape. Reach Level 20 and you’ll receive the Galaxy Opal Dillon Brooks card, which should come in handy in any 3v3 or 5v5 format.

Before becoming an NBA Head Coach, Avery Johnson was a 16-year NBA veteran, playing for the San Antonio Spurs, Golden State Warriors, Seattle Supersonics, Denver Nuggets, Dallas Mavericks, and Houston Rockets. After hanging up his sneakers, Johnson pursued a career in coaching and led the Dallas Mavericks to back-to-back 60-win seasons and a Western Conference Championship in 2006. Draw from his extensive knowledge and implement his strategy into your lineup with the Level 25 Pink Diamond Avery Johnson Coach card.

Bolster your wing depth with the Level 30 Galaxy Opal Jerami Grant card. The versatile forward is a reliable player on both ends of the court, and he’s averaged more than 20 points in three of the last four seasons. You can play him at small forward or power forward to create mismatches against opposing teams.

Jerry West, aka The Logo, is an NBA icon, literally and figuratively. The former Los Angeles Laker has been heavily involved in the league’s growth and history as a player, coach, and NBA executive. West holds the all-time single-season record for points averaged in the NBA Playoffs with an astonishing 40.6 points per game. Unleash the Hall of Famer’s scoring prowess with the Level 35 Dark Matter Jerry West card and run up the box score.

Last, but not least, the Season 7 Level 40 reward is Jamal Murray’s superstar teammate and MVP, Nikola Jokić. The Serbian big man can dissect any defense with his pinpoint passing, unlimited range beyond the arc, or wear a team down with his impressive rebounding capabilities. The Joker plays with an effortless demeanor and adds to his growing legacy with every triple-double. Impose your will with the Level 40 Dark Matter Nikola Jokić card and wish your opponents luck as they try to stop you.

As the NBA Playoffs progress, be on the lookout for more rewards to earn as players go off with big performances.
