NBA 2K24 Best Builds For Current And Next-Gen (2024)

Basketball is one of the most beloved sports in all of the world. Being able to play with or as all the legends in NBA 2K24 is a dream come true. Players also get to build their own characters in NBA 2K24 to see how they would fare against the greatest players in NBA history. Of course, to do that, your NBA 2K24 builds need to be on point if you wish to stand up against the best in the game.

Just as it is difficult to stand out in the world of basketball, making a character for yourself is also not so easy. A lot of thought goes into what attributes you want to get, the badges, and the skills that you want when going through the MyPlayer Builder in NBA 2K24. Do you want a jack-of-all-trades character or master of one? The choice is up to you.

Furthermore, your attributes determine your character’s overall is. A higher overall means your character will have access to better badges and better skills and a stronger character in short.

Now to increase your attributes, you need to spend VC, the in-game virtual currency, on your character. As you invest more into your attributes, the higher the prices go for each point spent on the attributes. On a good day, a single character upgrade from the starting 60 OVR to 99 OVR will cost you as much as 450,000 VC to 550,000 VC. This makes picking your attributes while making an NBA 2K24 build even riskier, as investing poorly will literally leave you poor in the game.

If you are a veteran NBA player, you would already know how to make a perfect build for yourself. If you are new to the NBA series, or are coming back from a long break, you might need some help making a build for yourself in NBA 2K24.
