Unlike when you need to choose between College or G League in next-gen NBA 2K22, the game does less to explain the difference between picking Palmer Athletic Agency or Berry & Associates in MyCareer. On this page, we'll list out the pros and cons of each option, but it's worth keeping in mind that neither path will restrict you from doing anything in the game, so don't sweat this decision too much.

Palmer Athletic Agency

The advantages to selecting Palmer Athletic Agency, or PAA, are that they are an established firm with many athletes already on their books. During the meeting with Diane and Kristen, they'll explain that, as long as you're performing on the court, you'll be fast-tracked into lucrative sponsorship deals with major organisations. Unfortunately, this will come at the cost of developing your own Personal Brand.

This is the more traditional option, and will reward you handsomely as long as you excel in the NBA. We'd recommend picking the Palmer Athletic Agency if you just want to focus on playing basketball and aren't as interested in the other activities in the game.

Upon signing with the Palmer Athletic Agency, you'll immediately receive the following rewards:

  • +5,000 MVP Points
  • +25 Fundamentals
  • +25 Corporate
  • +25 Team Orientated
  • +25 NBA

Berry & Associates

The advantages to selecting Berry & Associates are that they favour individuality and off-court activities, meaning that even if you're not performing particularly well in the NBA, you'll still have plenty of opportunities to expand your career, whether it's in the Fashion or Music industries. Obviously if you perform well on the court then sponsorship deals will still open up for you, but they may come slower than with the Palmer Athletic Agency.

If you select Berry & Associates then you'll have more control over developing your image both on and off the court, allowing you to stamp a little more individuality on your MyPlayer and define the kind of attention you're attracting. You'll also have more control over the details of any deals you land.

Upon signing with Berry & Associates, you'll immediately receive the following rewards:

  • +5,000 MVP Points
  • +25 Free Spirit
  • +25 Music
  • +25 Fashion
  • +25 Street

Palmer Athletic Agency or Berry & Associates: Who to Pick?

The easiest way to decide whether to pick Palmer Athletic Agency or Berry & Associates is to consider what you want more out of your MyCareer: do you just want to play basketball or do you want to engage with the side-activities and build your Personal Brand? If you just want to hoop for your NBA team, then we'd recommend selecting Palmer Athletic Agency, as while you'll still unlock Music and Fashion opportunities, this option will allow you to focus on your performance on the court.

You should pick Berry & Associates if you want to spend more time exploring the Music and Fashion activities, and if you want to better shape your Personal Brand. You'll still unlock plenty of sponsorship deals through your performance on the court, but these may come slower than if you sign with the Palmer Athletic Agency, which is worth keeping in mind. Either way, you'll still be able to participate in everything NBA 2K21 has to offer, so pick the option you think best represents your MyPlayer and progress forward to the NBA Draft.

Upon getting drafted, you'll get a new Apartment and you'll be able to participate in music trivia quests. You can find All Music Trivia Answers in MyCareer through the link.
