share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

With the launch excitement for NBA 2K22 still intact, players are still trying to find the best build for their MyPLAYER.

This is easier said than done as it takes a lot of fine-tuning and experimenting to find the right one for you.

That being said, there is a big difference between what works on current gen systems and next gen systems, as each features an entirely different MyPLAYER Builder.

We've put together a list of the best current gen NBA 2K22 MyPLAYER builds to help you succeed on the hardwood on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.


NBA 2K22 Best Current Gen builds

Players on current gen have to play by a different set of rules than the next gen players due to their unique MyPLAYER Builder - one still fitting color pies. However, that doesn't mean that they can't make build an incredible MyPLAYER all the same.

From the guard position to the center, these are some of the great builds out there for current gen players in NBA 2K22!

Sharpshooting Facilitator

This is an incredible shooting guard build, but can also work as a point guard build with some maneuvering. It's a score-first build, meaning you'll have to be efficient with the shot meter and take (or create) the right shots to make an impact.

If you can shoot and find ways to get open you'll be an incredible spot-up shooter. In the right hands, you'll be a nightmare to defend in NBA 2K22, and can easily take over as the top scorer in any setting.

Glass Cleaning Finisher

Perhaps you aren't looking to be a current gen sharp-shooter and want to focus your attention inside. The Power Forward builds on current gen are fantastic and one of the best positions to play.
