How to set up a 2-way Interior Scorer build for Center

Centers play an essential role for any successful team in the major leagues, and that holds true in NBA 2K24. They are responsible for defending the basket during defense and pulling a complete 180 and scoring on the basket during offense. In this build, true to that straightforward nature, we are aiming for stats and badges that improve our dunking and defensive capabilities.

We are going to put 97 points in Close Shot, 95 points in Post Control, and 90 points in Standing Dunk. This allocation greatly improves your post-hooking capabilities and unlocks helpful badges such as Hook Specialist and Dropstepper to further boost your scoring capabilities.

Being a Center, alongside scoring on the post, we are expected to defend our post when the ball switches hands. To that end, we have 90 points in Interior Defense and 92 points in Defensive Rebound. This stat distribution unlocks some helpful badges such as Boxout Beast, Rebound Chaser and Post Lockdown for better post-defense.

For the physical section, 96 points go into Strength, primarily to unlock Bulldozer to overpower defenders when its time to score and 91 points into Stamina for the Work Horse badge to get more successful Loose balls.
