    I'd already verified it before I started the game.

    I never bothered to verify, used a fake email address, and it worked fine

    I'm currently waiting for 2K to delete all trace of my gamertag from their Prelude servers, which they have agreed to do.
    I'll update here when it's done to confirm if I can access the career mode again.

    2K finally deleted my tag from The Prelude servers and I was able to play it again, unlocking my last two achievements.
    Simply file a ticket with their support asking them to do the same and you can play it again.
    Alternatively someone found a different method, I never tried this so I can't verify it works Igneus DarkSide's blog post - Restarting NBA 2k17 Prelude after a glitch/freeze

    This is more of a way how to restart NBA 2k17 Prelude if the game froze on you
    (like it did for me) and it wont let you back in saying you finished it.

    So after quite a lot of tries and errors, I managed to get it restarted and I
    got all the achievements I thought were glitched out for me.

    So here it is, step by step:

    1. Go to your games and apps, on the NBA 2k17 Prelude and choose Manage game
    2. Go to your save data, choose it and Delete Everywhere (You might have to do this 2-3 times until it dissapears)
    3. On your X1 go to Settings - Network - Go Offline.
    4. Now start the NBA 2k17 Prelude. It should start by creating a new player, do that and nothing else.
    5. Double tap the guide button to get the X1 menu and choose Connect to Xbox Live (It will take you to the Network screen, choose Go Online there). Wait until it shows your NAT
    6. Go back to the game (It should have stayed on) and go straight to 2KU (Tutorial game)
    7. Let it start, jump for the ball, take a shot or let them take a shot.
    8. Pause it and go to Camera. Change anything there, and exit saving it. THIS IS IMPORTANT - There should be a ball in the lower right corner signaling that it saves to the servers.
    9. Then go to quit the tutorial.
    10. After that wait a second or two and the other tiles should be working.
    11. Enjoy replaying anything that glitched out on you.
