With some new tweaks and adjustments to its game systems, NBA 2K23 makes the center position more important than ever.
Unlike in previous installments, a player contesting you at the center will make it difficult for you to make your shot. Hence, if you are looking to play the center role, you need a good team as well.
The following guide will tell you the best team to play in as a center in NBA 2K23.
Best teams to join as a center in NBA 2K23
To be fair, every team in the game can use a good center. The following teams are the ones that are the best in terms of team chemistry potential or have an open slot for you to make your name in.
With Donovan Mitchell leaving the side, there is a need for the guard position to develop asap. With a substantial rebuild, you can make your name all over.
Utah has experienced players such as Rudy Gay at the front and Mike Conley. But with the addition of many new players, the side seems a bit off-balanced. Hence playing at the center, you could be the side next star.
We all understand that the appointment of Juancho Hernangomez at the center is appointed to ease pressure from Fred VanVleet and Pascal Siakam.
You can establish your player well in the center. Allow Siakam to play the four. It will be a golden opportunity for you to go down low with Saikam’s abilities to shoot from outside.
Kristaps Porziņģis is best if placed at stretch four. Washington is cursed, with injuries to the center players over the past seasons. There is a space for a starting five.
Being in the center of such a scenario is an opportunity for you to shine. Plus, there are no double-double players on the side, the exception is Kyle Kuzma of course. But there are a handful of transition players on the team. If the team plays a running game, it will favor you at the center because, after a defensive rebound, it is you from where the attack starts.
Oklahoma City Thunder
There’s no big player at the center for Oklahoma City. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander can be an exception, but then there isn’t another great option. It means the center serves you with a bunch of opportunities and guaranteed PNR/PNPs for the team with you at the center. Add on an SOS call from Alex Pokusevski and Chet Holmgren and then boom.
Los Angeles Clippers
With the new changes in the modern NBA, Paul George, Kawhi Leonard, and John Wall will lead the attack, which doesn’t hint that you won’t have a role in their rotation.
Do remember these three are isolation/transition players. It means that they will require someone at the center to handle their drop passes. With good and consistent gameplay, you can mark your name.
Sacramento lacks a decent player for the center. With Domantas Sabonis’s acquisition, the inside will be open to the center. Position yourself well in the center, and you will receive good passes from Fox and Sabonis.
You can outshine every top pick at the center in Orlando Magic. Bamba is recently appointed, to the center but as he will be entering the fifth season, he won’t remain for so long. Therefore, you could be their center for many seasons. You should develop team chemistry with Anthony, Suggs, and most importantly Franz Wagner.
