NBA 2K22 Best Next Gen Point Guard Builds Guide

This guide will tell you the best next gen Point Guard builds in NBA 2K22, and we’ll be showing you how you can build the perfect NBA 2K22 Team.

NBA 2K22 Best Next Gen Point Guard Builds

The new MyPlayer builder in NBA 2K22 offers players a lot of options to customize their builds to create the perfect star player. With all of these options presented to you, one can get a little confused when building their perfect builds.

If you don’t know already, the Point Guard is arguably the most important player in the game. Their job is to carry the team to victory on offense, but they can also play a big role on defense.

If you don’t have good Point Guards on your team, the opponents will be running circles around you on their defense.

What’s great about the Point Guard position is that it’s very diverse. Point Guards don’t need to have a specific physique, attributes, and playstyles to be able to do their job well.

Take famous Point Guards Magic Johnson and Steph Curry, for example. The former is a 6’9 giant who carried his team with steals and assists, while the latter is a 6’3 Demigod who blows his opponents out of the water with his shooting ability.

What kind of Point Guard you want in your team completely depends upon your own playstyle. To help you figure that out, we’ve listed four of the best next-gen Point Guards below, each of which serve to fit a different kind of playstyle.

3PT Playmaker Build

This build is all about offense. Before we jump into the build, you have to note that if you’re going with this build, you need to have amazing stick skills. If you cannot carry your team on your back on the offense, this build just won’t work for you.

If you’re able to dribble yourself open easily and hit consistent 3-pointers, then this build will work wonders for you.

This Point Guard will be crazy fast and excellent at shooting 3-pointers. He’ll also be relatively good at finishing, but his defense will be noticeably bad.

On the defense, you can practically just sit in a corner the whole time and let your team do all the work. But when it comes to offense, though, that’s going to be all you.

Floor-Spacing Slasher Build

Our next build will be more catered towards people who don’t have elite stick skill but still want to have great offensive abilities.

You won’t be getting many 3-pointers with this build, but to compensate, you will get a lot more opportunities of getting dunks, contacts, driving to the hoop, and you’ll overall have a well-balanced offense. And as with the previous build, the defense of this build won’t be anything impressive.

2-Way Shot Creator Build

Our final build is another well-balanced one. Even though it is a bit on the taller side for a Point Guard, the effect of the height on its speed is negligible, and it gives the build some great benefits.

The weight and wingspan of this build are also perfect for gaining strength without sacrificing any speed.

With the physique and attributes of this build, it’ll excel in both offense and defense. This balance of height, weight, and wingspan will make this Point Guard a force to be reckoned with on both sides.
