How to set up a 3 Point shot creator build for Small Forward
Small forwards are the core of any team in NBA 2K24. They play an important role in creating space for playmaking, perfect long shots, receiving secondary rebounds, and defending your parameter. In this build, we will mainly focus on dribbles, defense, and long shots to deliver perfect 3-pointers. Below is an extensive breakdown of all four main playstyles in the game.
We are going to put 90 points in Mid-Range Shot, 85 points in Three-point Shot, and 65 points in Free Throw. This puts our accuracy for long shots and mid-range shots above 90% with the help of specific badges. It also allows us to move the ball freely across the court without getting into much trouble.
The next part is also the most important one. As we are playing Small Forward, right behind power forward, we are also tasked with playmaking and passes. To achieve this task, we have 80 points in Pass Accuracy, 89 points in Ball Handle, and 83 points in Speed with Ball. This stat distribution unlocks Ankle Breaker which allows us to overwhelm the defenders and pass the ball easily to our teammates.
Defense is a core mechanic and duty of a Small Forward player in NBA 2K24. For this, we have set Perimeter Defense at 85 to block the rebound attack from the opponents.
For the physical section, 85 points go into Speed, 84 points into Acceleration and 99 points into Stamina. This improves our dribble speeds and quality, while we pass the defenders to use our open center player to deal a massive blow to the opponents.
