NBA 2K24 Affiliations: Choose RISE Or ELITE?

Rise or Elite are two affiliations players can join in NBA 2K24 that provide different bonuses, so which one should you choose?

The “free-roam” of NBA 2K24 allows players to link up with different affiliations and sponsors. One such option in NBA 2K24 is to join up with either RISE or ELITE clubs for various bonuses. But that brings up the conundrum, which one is better and should you join NBA 2K24 Rise or Elite affiliations?

Should you choose RISE or ELITE in NBA 2K24?

These affiliations are some sort of Clubs or Communities and each of them has its own perks along with some particular boost benefits as well. They are independent of players’ attributes and provide additional benefits to the character. Keeping in mind your build, you need to adopt the one that suits best for you.

However, if you made the wrong choice, NBA 2K24 also allows you to switch your affiliation but this comes with a cost. Whenever you change affiliation, your NBA 2K24 REP level will reset. So it’s in your best interest to have a brief knowledge about both Affiliations from the get-go so you don’t have to waste REP and switch if you are unsatisfied
