How to set up Diming Interior Threat build

Diming Interior Threats are the playmakers who control the whole game inside the court. Their main purpose is to pass the ball around. However, this is easier said than done. To be able to achieve such a feat without getting stripped by the defenders, Dime needs immense physical strength and stamina to withstand the pressure. They also need to be proficient with close shots, rebounds and dunks to score 2 pointers in case they fail to pass the ball around. 

For offense, we are only focusing on Close up shot (90), Mid-Range shot (76) and Three-point shot (74). As our build for the Diming Interior Threat is a Center, we also want them to score some precious points whenever possible. For this purpose, this build is proficient in scoring 2-pointers and occasional 3-pointers from a mid-range distance. 


Now comes the most important part of our build, Playmaking. A dime is nothing if not a playmaker. To make them a passing beast on the court, we have 92 points in Pass Accuracy and 63 points in Free Throw. This will unlock all the HoF badges that we need for Diming Interior Threat in NBA 2K24. 

For defense, we are going with 92 points in Block, 93 points in Offensive Rebound and 89 points in Defensive Rebound. This allows our players to not only block and evade the fearsome defenders, but they can also score some rebounds for dunks or passing the ball around. 

Being physical plays a very important role for a dime player in basketball. It also compliments when they play the Center position in addition to their designated role. For this purpose, we have 90 points in Strength stat and 95 points in Stamina. This makes our build almost impervious to ball snatches and losing the court to the defenders.
