How To Make The Best Guard Build

The best Guard Build includes the character with perfect stats that favor the Point Guard or Shooting Guard positions.

It includes having perfect Body Settings, Attributes, and Dribbling moves. While making a Guard build, you should consider the following factors.

  • Scoring potential from anywhere on the court.
  • Excellent ball-handling skills.
  • Reliable speed with the ball and Passing Accuracy.
  • Ability to create space for shots and drive to the basket.

Although getting into each category and setting the correct perimeters might be a bit overwhelming, taking each section separately and investing some time in creating a personalized build can get favorable results.

Point Guard Build Attributes

The Point Guards play the most important role in the team; therefore, they need to be most skillful with exceptional dribble moves and passing skills. With the right Point Guard build, you can dominate your opponents in defense as well as offense.

Body

Before getting into playmaking, defense, and offense of the players, selecting the suitable body attributes is important. For instance, if you choose too much height, the player will not be able to perform quick dribbling movements and will be vulnerable to the opponent’s fast-paced players.

The following are the Body Attributes for Point Guard Build:

  • Height: 6’6″
  • Weight: 180 lbs
  • Wingspan: 6’9″

NBA 2K24 shows a lot of versatility when it comes to Shooting Guard Build, as you have a great deal of choices to go for. You can either focus on becoming the efficient playmaker, smooth slasher, or three-point specialist. While you can focus your stats on a specific trait, there is a hybrid build that is effective on both ends of the court.

It is possible to play with an SG build that is good at defense as well as shows excellence in offense if you choose the right attributes and skills. For Shooting Guard, you have to focus on each attribute just like PG to get the best results. For SG, you should go for average height and wingspan with complementing body weight that makes the player fast-paced in the arena.
