How to set up a 2-way Inside-Out Scorer build in NBA 2K24

Shooting Guards are an essential asset that brings a great deal of utility to any team in NBA 2K24. They play an important role in bolstering team offense, keeping opponents on guard both in the paint and beyond the three-point line.

In this Shooting Guard Inside-Out Scorer build, we are mainly going for a build that juggles sufficient sturdiness, speed, and offensive capabilities to not only make good shots and dunks but also be able to maneuver around enemy defense and contest offensive ball handlers when on the defensive backfoot.

We are going to put 75 points in Mid-Range Shot, 89 points in Three-point Shot, and 68 points in Free Throw. This allocation helps unlock some very decent badges to improve utility while also keeping your movement flexible and free form across the court.


As we are playing Shooting Guard, our core task is to score when the ball is in our possession and to steal the ball back while on defense. To that end, we have 75 points in Pass Accuracy, 85 points in Ball Handle, and 79 points in Speed with Ball. This stat distribution unlocks some helpful skills such as Blow-By for improved juke capabilities against enemy defenders.

As a Shooting guard player in NBA 2K24, stealing the ball back during defense is a critical role. The stat distribution is good to acquire Gold Clamps Ankle Braces and Challenger, all skills that increase your utility beyond pure offense and help to round out your sturdiness to avoid getting crossed over and get the ball back in your control. For this, we have set Perimeter Defense at 93 and Steal at 85.

For the physical section, 81 points go into Speed, 77 points into Acceleration and 99 points into Stamina. This improves our dribble speeds and quality, allowing us to break through enemy defense when in the paint and take a point for the team.
