With another new NBA 2K game comes another mad dash to create the best build possible to dominate the court. In NBA 2K22 I dished out advice to build the best center and I’ve already taken a stab at making a paint beast center build for NBA 2K23. In this article, however, I will be moving my attention to the focal point of any team, the point guard. Let’s take a look at the best Point Guard build I could come up with for PS5.
NBA 2K23 Best Point Guard Build on PS5While some may choose to be specialists in this position I favor a build that allows me to have a presence on every aspect of the court. I want to create, defend, shoot 3’s, and have some presence inside.
Body SettingsHeight: 6 foot 3 Weight: 175 Pounds Wingspan: 6 foot 11 Being on the smaller size hurts inside shooting but allows for a better top speed and acceleration which will be essential to dominating the league.
FinishingClose Shot: 58 Driving Layup: 77 Driving Dunk: 93 Standing Dunk:25 Post Control: 25 Unsurprisingly it’s best to focus on the driving attributes as any inside shots will likely come from drives off a screen or by exploiting a weak defender.
ShootingMid-Range: 75 Three-Point: 90 Free Throw: 70
PlaymakingPass Accuracy: 80 Ball Handle: 90 Speed With Ball: 89 When playing as a Point Guard I usually like to make plays and rack up assists so I load up on pass accuracy. If you’re more interested in scoring then you can move a few points to handle or speed with ball instead.
DefenseInterior Defense: 25 Perimeter Defense: 75 Steal: 80 Block: 27 Offensive Rebound: 25 Defensive Rebound: 33 I like to keep attackers on their toes so I have some bias towards the steal attribute but if you’d rather be more defensively solid then you can switch steal’s 80 points with perimeter defense.
