One of the most valuable in-game displays in MyCAREER is the scoreboard in the top-right of your screen tracking player statistics and teammate grade. While the pure numbers are there, you'll also get little pop-up notifications explaining how your teammate grade and performance are playing out in NBA 2K24.
If you happen to notice the dreaded Shooting Slump in NBA 2K24, and the icon next to it has worried some players that a few missed shots were making it harder for them to mount a comeback. However, 2K Sports Gameplay Director Mike Wang has publicly clarified that the NBA 2K24 Shooting Slump notification is "just the game letting you know you've missed 3 shots in a row and your Teammate Grade is getting hit."
Wang went on to reassure players that "it doesn't affect your ability to shoot at all" and that they're already planning to adjustments for a future update. Based on feedback from players, the Shooting Slump pop-up will instead be changed to happen when players miss five consecutive shots rather than just three.
