NBA 2K23 Paint Beast Build

As mentioned above, while creating a team in NBA 2k23, players must make sure that they are positioning their players and assigning them the role that truly fits them the most. And building players solely for a defensive role can give you a knight that outdoes everyone on the field.

Having a strong defensive center on the court ensures that there’s a presence on the court that will rebound both offensively and defensively and score when needed.

While building Paint Beast Build, you can use the defensive and playmaking skills of dunk build to have an additional advantage.

As for the offensive side, paint beasts mainly score by posting up. This involves having a good close-range shot, drawing foul stats, and hence the best free throw stats to follow up with.

The team mostly relies on this position because it can control the game’s momentum and truly flip the tables when least expected. Therefore, it is on you how seriously you take this role and formulate a player, especially for it.

Below is the build that helps you produce a paint beast in NBA 2K23 who performs well in the sensitive area while also being an effective defensive center.
