I consider the Chicago Bulls to be one of the best teams for the Point Guard position in NBA 2K24 due to it being good at every category except the Point Guard, making your player the one thing it needs to reach the top.

DeMar DeRozan is the Chicago Bull’s highest-rated player, followed by Zack LaVine, Nikola Vucevic, and Lonzo Ball.

PG- Miami Heat

The Miami Heat team is also a worthy contender for the best team in NBA 2K24 for a point guard. A good Point Guard may have been the one thing this team was missing for winning the finals last year.

Jimmy Butler is the Miami Heat’s highest-rated player, followed by Bam Adebayo, Tyler Herro, and Caleb Martin. Miami Heart is worthy of being on the NBA 2K24 Best Teams list.

The LA Lakers already have one of the best basketball players in the world on their team, with the team having 17 titles under their belt. The Los Angeles Lakers is very easily one of the best teams in NBA 2K24 and the best team for a Shooting Guard period.

Lebron James is the team’s highest-rated player, followed by Anthony Davis, D’Angelo Russel, and Austin Reaves, all having an overall above 80.

SG- Milwaukee Bucks

The only team that can give the LA Lakers some competition for being the best team for Shooting Guard is the Milwaukee Bucks. With the entire starting roster having an overall above 80 and with the legend- Giannis Antetokounmpo being on the team. It would’ve been disrespectful if I didn’t mention the Milwaukee Bucks on this NBA 2K24 Best Teams list.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is, of course, the highest-rated player on the team, followed by Jrue Holiday, Khris Middleton, Brook Lopez, and Bobby Portis.

SF- Philadelphia 76ERS

The Philadelphia 76ERS is already a powerhouse in all categories except the Small Foward. Therefore, making the team perfect for your character who specializes in the Small Forward position. 

With Joel Ebiid being the highest-rated player on the team, followed by James Harden, Tyrese Maxey, and Tobias Harris, it definitely makes a worthy candidate for one of the best teams in NBA 2K24 for a Small Forward.

SF- Phoenix Suns

The Phoenix Suns is another contender for the best team for the Small Forward position in NBA 2K24. With three appearances in the NBA finals, the team is no joke.

Aside from being a fantastic team overall, they all have Kevin Durant as their highest-rated player, followed by Devin Brooker, Bradley Beal, and Deandre Ayton, making it one formidable team.

The Dallas Mavericks are already crazy strong on the backcourt. The only thing the team is lacking is a good power forward, making it a perfect candidate and one of the best teams for your player to join who specializes in the Power Forward position.

Luka Doncic is the Dallas Mavericks highest rated player, followed by Kyrie Erving, Tim Hardaway Jr, and Jaden Hardy.

The starting roster of the LA Clippers is already a powerhouse, and they may just be one good Power Forward away from securing a championship. For me personally, the Los Angeles Clippers easily take the crown of NBA 2K24 BEST Team for a Power Forward.

The highest-rated player on this team is Kawli Leonard, followed by Paul George, Russell Westbrook, and Ivica Zubac. All have an overall above 80.

C- Memphis Grizzlies

The Memphis Grizzlies is another formidable team on this NBA 2K24 BEST Teams list, with the entire starting roster having an overall of 80 and above. The Memphis Grizzlies team is no joke, and as a center, you will be replacing Steven Adams, who has an overall of 80. Steven is not that good at scoring, so if your character can play a good center and can score like jumpshots, then you will be a perfect match for Memphis Grizzlies.

The highest-rated player of the Memphis Grizzlies is JA Morant, followed by Jaren Jackson Jr., Desmond Bane, Marcus Smart, and Steven Adams.

C- Golden State Warriors

I couldn’t end the list without listing one of the iconic teams in the NBA, which is also the team of arguably one of the best NBA players in the world, Stephen Curry. For a center, joining the Golden State Warriors team should be your number one priority. Because aside from Draymond Green, the only good center on this team is Kevon Looney, with an overall of 79, there is definitely room for improvement there.

The highest-rated player of the Golden State Warriors is, of course, Stephen Curry, followed by Chris Paul, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and Andrew Wiggins. All of them have an overall above 80.
