NBA 2K24 gives you plenty of freedom when it comes to creating your player for MyCareer mode, but with all those options, where do you start? We’ve got the answer to that question with this list of builds. We’re here to show you some of the best MyPlayer builds for each position in the next-gen version of NBA 2K24.

NBA Templates

This year, 2K has decided to give you a little more guidance when it comes to modeling your build after specific NBA players. If you don’t necessarily want to choose your own stats one by one from scratch, you can choose an NBA Template that’ll set your stats to mimic real players. After your stats are set with an NBA player as a base, you can customize them to your liking.

Best PG Build - 3pt Shot Hunter

This Point Guard build allows you to make an impact on both offense and defense. You’ll be able to drain threes while picking pockets, but the downside here is the lack of Driving Dunk. Anyone who prefers to rise up and dunk over defenders as a PG should alter the build to fit their style.

This build will give you access to Gold Deadeye, Glove, and Interceptor. If you want to get Gold Limitless Range, you can raise your Three-Point Shot to 96 and sacrifice a bit of Steal--it all depends on your preferences.

Best SG Build - Floor-Spacing Slasher

This Shooting Guard build is a mix of slasher and three-point threat with a bit of defense to round things out. You’ll be a bit on the shorter side with just an average Speed stat, but this build is for those of you who want to cause havoc in the lane.

The 89 Driving Dunk will unlock contact dunk animations while giving you Silver Posterizer. And you’ll still get Silver Limitless Range along with Gold Deadeye, Blow-By, and Speed Booster. Like I said before, if you want Gold Limitless Range, you can always bump Three-Point Shop up to 96 at the cost of other stats.

Best SF Build - 3 & D Threat

This Small Forward build is similar to the one we suggested last year, as it turns you into a lockdown defender who can’t do much else except shoot threes. Your playmaking and inside scoring will be average at best, but your role is to disrupt the other team’s offense in every way.

The 96 Steal will get you Hall of Fame Right Stick Ripper--an amazing defensive badge that guarantees a few easy steals whenever you use the right stick on-ball or in passing lanes. You’ll also gain access to Hall of Fame Interceptor and Gold Glove.

  • Acceleration: 74
  • Strength: 70
  • Vertical: 80
  • Stamina: 99

Best PF Build - 2-Way 3pt Threat

This Power Forward build allows you to lock down the paint and grab rebounds all game long. And when you get offensive rebounds, you’ll be going back up strong every time. Your 78 Three-Point Shot is decent for a PF, but your focus will be interior scoring and defensive plays.

The 88 Interior Defense gives you Gold Post Lockdown, Anchor, and Work Horse badges. Meanwhile, the 92 Block unlocks Gold Chase Down Artist.

Body Settings

  • Weight: 242lbs

  • Three-Point Shot: 78

Best C Build - Diming Paint Beast

This Center build is similar to the Power Forward build above, but with much better Pass Accuracy to be able to hit open shooters whenever you get a rebound. You can still go up and finish by yourself after grabbing boards, but your passes will be able to start breaks and feed the team. Playmaking and defense are the focus here.

The 96 Pass Accuracy gives you Hall of Fame Dimer and Break Starter to become a post playmaker, while the 92 Standing Dunk gives you Gold Fast Twitch, Rise Up, and Aerial Wizard to finish around the rim.

Body Settings

  • Height: 7’0’’
  • Weight: 252lbs
  • Wingspan: 7’10’’

Build Stats

Finishing:

  • Close Shot: 57
  • Driving Layup: 70
  • Driving Dunk: 89
  • Standing Dunk: 92
  • Post Control: 30

Shooting:

  • Mid-Range Shot: 26
  • Three-Point Shot: -
  • Free Throw: 50

Playmaking:

  • Pass Accuracy: 96
  • Ball Handle: 61
  • Speed With Ball: 31

Defense/Rebounding:

  • Interior Defense: 88
  • Perimeter Defense: 41
  • Steal: 60
  • Block: 92
  • Offensive Rebound: 93
  • Defensive Rebound: 86

These five builds are great choices, but, of course, there are plenty of other options to go with depending on your preferred playstyle. Don’t be afraid to mess with the stats and tweak things to your liking while using the builds above as a base.
