Even lowly common cards may be magically transformed (take note: it’s not really magic) into better variants of themselves by converting them pro. And yes, we thought all NBA players were already pros.
To turn a gambler pro, you’ll need three extra copies of the same player at the identical tier, along with NBA 2k17 MT. The main player must also be at max levels, which could vary based on what rarity he can be.
The contract and the duplicate player cards are consumed at the same time, so make sure you’re ready to part with them. Pro versions of cards tend to be competitive with or better yet than the next tier up whenever they are fully leveled, so if you are generally stuck on, say, super rare, obtaining some pros at that level means that you can hang with and overcom ultra rare decks, and is a valid reason for not using rare or better cards as leveling fodder.
