How to set up a Point Guard Shot Creating 3-Level Threat build

Shot creators on their own are a great addition to any team, owing to their great solo capabilities when trying to carve a path into the enemy paint. Add on traits of a 3-Level Threat on top of your shot, and he is now basically an all-around menace, whether passing a difficult shot to a teammate, taking personal shots from long ranges, or dunking when up close and personal.  To that end, you’ll need to be fast enough to make your way across the court quickly, while also having an effective scoring kit to capitalize on the ranges you want to be scoring from.

We are going to put 94 points in Driving Dunk and let the other relevant statistics automatically level up with it. This allocation helps unlock some very decent badges to improve utility while also keeping your movement flexible and free from across the court.

Unlocking the Precision Dunker, Aerial Wizard and Slithery badges, among others, helps to boost your scoring capabilities in the paint, while also boosting your overall maneuverability.


You also want to round out your long-ranged capabilities so to that end, invest 85 in Mid-Range Shot, 85 in Three-Point-Shot and 70 points in Free Throw. For noteworthy reasons, these will not only unlock badges to bolster your range such as Limitless Range but also come with a myriad of shooting badges such as Corner Specialist, Agent-3, Catch and Shoot etc.

As a Point guard player in NBA 2K24, your first and main role is to ensure that you can pass the ball along to your teammates, especially when you find yourself cornered. For this, we have set Pass Accuracy at 76, Ball Handle at 90 and Speed with Ball at 85. This will unlock Blow-By and Speed Shooter badges to round out your evasiveness when handling the ball, as well as higher variants of Handles for Days playmaking badge, to streamline your stamina consumption while dribbling against defenders.

For the physical section, 81 points go into Speed, 77 points into Acceleration and 99 points into Stamina. These help us put in the required attributes for higher variations of Handles for Days as well as a slew of other badges such as Bulldozer to increase ball control and overpower defenders trying to take away the ball and prevent you from setting a troublesome position in their court.
