CHEF CURRY: This build is about scoring no matter what the defense does

The truth is, if you're looking to build a nearly unstoppable player on offense, this is the best build to do it with.

Contrarily, your MyPLAYER won't be a great defender because of your size and wingspan.

Here's what you'll need to get started:

  • Height: 6'3"
  • Weight: MIN
  • Wingspan: MIN
  • Position: PG / SG
  • Takeover: Sharpshooter

Perimeter Lockdown

Perhaps you're actually looking for the alternative of the Playmaking Shot Creator. Maybe you want to find a way to guard anyone that steps on the court, without sacrificing a lot of offense.

Think of someone like Marcus Smart and Jrue Holday, players known for being some of the best defenders in the NBA. If you want that, you'll want to use the MyPLAYER Perimeter Lockdown build.
