Welcome to the League Quest not Progressing Explained NBA 2K23

The “Welcome to the League” quest is one of the main story quests in NBA 2K23 MyCareer. As such, its completion is essential for progressing the story further and continuing your single-player experience. On its surface, it’s a rather straightforward quest. It should be completed once you finish both “Handle Your Business” and “Control The Narrative” quests. That’s exactly what it says.

The “Handle Your Business” quest requires you to play five games (NBA), and score 60 points, assists, rebounds, blocks, and steals in total (NBA). On the other hand, the “Control The Narrative” quest asks you to visit the Local News office. That’s where John Luck is waiting for you. If you’ve completed both of these, you are probably wondering why the “Welcome to the League” quest is not completed.

What the game doesn’t tell you is that the quest is not over here. You will need to play five more games (10 games in total), and you’ll receive a message from the coach, he will have some important news for you. After a couple of more tasks to complete you will be summoned to the locker room, where you will be informed that you’ve become a starter player. And that’s where the “Welcome to the League” quest is completed.

      I got a glitch where it’s saying in order to play my 3rd game I need to complete the myPoints accelerator quest but when I go to quests it’s only control the narrative and handle your business which tells me I need to play nba games but I can’t because I have to compete the “myPoints accelerator quest”

          Same thing happening with me. Idk why they put quest to play games. It’s annoying and unnecessary.

            2K really needs to fix this ASAP. I’ve done everything to complete the quests. I’ve played 11 games and now for some reason it keeps saying “Complete ‘Control The Narrative” but I’ve been completed that and talked to John at the local news station. For some reason it won’t show “Welcome to the League” as completed and it wont let me continue.

          I had the same issue, you have to go in the coaches office that’s in the locker room and talk. Then it’ll let you proceed.

            There is no coach in the locker room it’s glitched. You walk to the arena with all quests done and it still doesnt let you. They need to fix the quests you cant even play mycareer.

          They anyone find a solution? I am stuck at “Control the Narrative”. I won all the first 4 NBA games. That finished “Handle Your Business” for me before I even played all 4 games. Between does games I finished “Control the Narrative” up to the point where I have to win 1 NBA game and need to have 1 highlight game. Now I am at my 5th game and only “Control the Narrative” is still unfinished. But however I perform at that 5th season game (just played and scored 56pts / 10rbs / 6asts with an A+) it always ends with objective failed. When I quit, I spawn in the Arena with the 5th game still to play. I cant replay any of the already 4 finished games, only the 5th game. Which ends with obj. failed whatever I do. And I can’t simulate it either bc it tells me to finish the Narrative quest.

    If you’re having trouble completing the control the narrative quest, it’s bc you have to go to the local news office to find John. For some reason, the question completely disappears and the office isn’t on the map. The office is in between the big under armour and adidas building though if you know where that is. Right around the corner from the one plaza building with Ricky

      What if we already completed that and we are on another build, that’s how I’m stuck

      I have this same problem! Wait, that’s my description of it! 🙂
      “They anyone find a solution?” was supposed to say “Did anyone find a solution?”

      @Rodriguez: from what I gathered at Reddit and the official forums, we are f*cked and need to start over.
