NBA 2K24 Season 3 was released a few days ago, and the players had an opportunity to experience updates and changes. In the latest update, we have shooting changes, steals fixed, and more. About the shooting changes, the community is divided because it was never easier to shoot in NBA 2K.

Best builds in Season 3: Best Point Guard build in NBA 2K24

We will start the best builds in Season 3 with a point guard. In the NBA, the point guard plays a crucial role in controlling the game's pace and directing the offense.

A height of 6'6" provides a dominant presence on the court, combining shooting ability with playmaking agility. A long wingspan enhances defensive capabilities, ensuring superior shot contests and extended reach. With a 93 three-point rating, this player is a consistent threat from beyond the arc.

Abilities & Skills:

  • Shooting: To emulate players like Steph Curry, a point guard should be able to shoot from deep. It is recommended to have a 93 into a three-pointer as it unlocks Hall of Fame open looks, which is crucial for consistent shooting.
  • Finishing: Consistent finishing in the paint can be achieved by putting at least 75 points into driving dunks and 73 points into driving layups.
  • Playmaking: A 93 in ball handling ensures speed boosting and unpluckable abilities. To achieve Speed Booster Gold, keep pass accuracy at 77 for this build. An 83 speed with the ball is the threshold.
  • Defense: To defend on the other end of the court, players should have 85 perimeter defense combined with a 71 steal.

Physical Attributes:

  • Height: 6'6"
  • Weight: 180 lbs
  • Wingspan: 6'7"

Skills to Avoid:

  • Excessive Pass Accuracy: It's important to avoid excessive pass accuracy as it can divert points from other crucial skills. A pass accuracy of 75 is more than sufficient to ensure efficient passing.

Best Shooting Guard build in NBA 2K24

If you're looking for the best shooting guard build in 2K24, then a two-way slasher is the way to go. While some players may choose to focus solely on shooting and playmaking, we recommend a more balanced approach that prioritizes both offense and defense. This will allow you to impact both sides of the floor.

Abilities & Skills:

  • Shooting: As a shooting guard, having an 83 three-pointer rating is crucial for consistent deep shots and unlocking the most effective shooting badges.
  • Finishing: A driving dunk rating of 90 is a must-have to ensure powerful finishes in the paint and unlock silver posterizer and other key dunk badges.
  • Playmaking: A ball handling rating of 93 is non-negotiable as it grants access to every gold play-making badge, including the Hall of Fame ankle breaker. Additionally, an 83 speed with ball rating is crucial for swift court movements and speed boosting.
  • Defense: An 88 perimeter defense rating combined with an 85 steal rating is vital. This combo gives you an effective perimeter D and the ability to disrupt passing lanes.

Physical Attributes:

  • Height: 6’6″
  • Weight: To prioritize agility, go for the lowest weight
  • Wingspan: Maxed out

Best Small Forward build in NBA 2K24

This Small Forward’s build is one of the best builds in Season 3 of NBA 2K24. The most versatile position on the court, the Small Forward serves as a link between guards and big men. A superstar SF can shoot, drive, and defend, making them probably the most important player in NBA 2K24.

This build is trying to emulate legendary small forwards, such as LeBron James and Kevin Durant. It gives you the ability to impact the floor on both sides, make difficult shoots, and lockdown the best opponent players.

Abilities & Skills:

  • Shooting: To ensure consistent shooting from beyond the arc, put 86 points into a three-pointer to start this build. Although quite neglected in recent years, a mid-range shot still exists, so a 72 mid-range shot should be good enough.
  • Finishing: To make sure your SF will have powerful finishes at the rim, put a 90 driving dunk. This rating also unlocks gold Precision Dunker, improving dunking capabilities.
  • Playmaking: Smooth dribbling and playmaking can be achieved with a combination of an 85 ball handle with a 75 speed with ball. This combo will unlock a silver Speed Booster.
  • Defense: Defense is vital for a small forward. With an 85 perimeter defense and 85 steal, this SF can disrupt opponents and create fast-break opportunities. A 78 block and a 78 vertical is a solid combo for rim protection and rebounds.

Physical Attributes:

  • Height: 6’8″
  • Weight: 228 lbs.
  • Wingspan: 6’10”

Skills to Avoid:

  • Low Ball Handle: Don’t go beyond 85 in ball handling for this position because you don’t want to sacrifice other important stats.
  • Excessive Free Throw: You don’t need more than a rating of 62 in free throw for this build.

Best Power Forward build in NBA 2K24

One of the best builds in Season 3 is a versatile power forward, who can be effective from both the perimeter and interior. Giannis Antetokounmpo is the inspiration for this build.

Abilities & Skills:

  • Shooting: The plan here is to stick to minimum mid-range shot and three-point shooting. In order to focus on inside play and physical abilities, you can also avoid any points into free throw shooting.
  • Finishing: Explosive finishes will be there with a 96 driving dunk. Also, a 90 standing dunk will give your PF build powerful finishes in the paint.
  • Playmaking: You don’t need more than a 75 ball handle and 65 speed with ball. Another 75 points for pass accuracy will give you an efficient distributor of the ball, and will unlock several silver playmaking badges.
  • Defense: This build is particularly strong defensively, boasting an 87 block rating which ensures excellent rim protection. Additionally, the 71 perimeter defense rating provides versatility in guarding both bigs and perimeter players. The 72 interior defense rating, combined with a high rebounding stat, makes this build a dominant force in the paint.

Physical Attributes:

  • Height: 6’10”
  • Weight: 252 lbs
  • Wingspan: Maxed out

Skills to Avoid:

  • Excessive Shooting: Finishing, playmaking, and defense is the most important for this build, so we must sacrifice shooting.
  • Low Ball Handle: Don’t overkill this position with anything beyond 75 in ball handling.
