share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

With all of the changes in NBA 2K22 MyTEAM now that Season 3 is here, one thing remains the same. If you want a good squad, you have to use the best cards.

The best power forwards in MyTEAM are versatile players that will fill each role properly but won't get backed down in the paint either.

Let's take a look at the best power forwards in NBA 2K22 MyTEAM.

NBA 2K22 MyTEAM Best Power Forwards

Any strong NBA 2K22 MyTEAM is going to have a couple of interior power forwards that can rebound and preferably shoot well.

One of the most important pieces of having a good team is depth, so you'll want to make sure that you have at least two really strong power forwards. This way, you'll have a backup to relieve your starter.

NBA 2K22 MyTEAM Primetime Moments pack
NBA 75 PACKS: These packs have a solid mix of great Power Forwards

The Primetime Moments cards within the NBA 75 packs have a pretty good mix of power forwards for your MyTEAM. However, you're going to want to purchase a few from Auctions instead of packs.

Let's get started with the best Pink Diamond Power Forwards for your MyTEAM.

Best Pink Diamond Power Forwards

Pink Diamond cards are the highest-rated cards behind Galaxy Opal cards in NBA 2K22 MyTEAM. Right now, there aren't any Galaxy Opal cards for Power Forwards though.

However, there are a ton of players to choose from the Pink Diamond players available and some of them cost quite a bit of MT. Let's make sure you make the right decision here.

NBA 2K22 MyTEAM Tim Duncan
PINK DIAMONDS: The 96 OVR Tim Duncan is a steal at the PF spot

Here are our favorite NBA 2K22 MyTEAM Pink Diamond Power Forwards:

  • Larry Bird - Pink Diamond (96 OVR) - PF/SF
  • Tim Duncan - Pink Diamond (96 OVR) - PF/C
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo - Pink Diamond (95 OVR) - PF/C

Larry Bird gives you a ton of shooting ability but lacks slightly in the speed department which could pose a problem. However, he's lights out from the three-point line.

Tim Duncan is an incredible rebounder and inside scorer, but he won't be knocking down a lot of shots from outside in NBA 2K22.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is a good mixture of both and works as a slasher as well. Out of all the options we like the most, but he also costs over 300K MT on average.

Best Diamond Power Forwards

Taking a step down to Diamond power forwards isn't a bad idea because there is still a ton of value and you can land a strong Diamond for under 25K MT. If you're looking for depth, it's a great option.

There are also some heavy hitters in this category, so don't be afraid to stray away from the Pink Diamonds here and get yourself a Diamond Power Forward in NBA 2K22.

NBA 2K22 MyTEAM LeBron James
KING JAMES: Add the King to your NBA 2K22 MyTEAM lineup

Here are our favorite NBA 2K22 MyTEAM Diamond Power Forwards:

  • Domantas Sabonis - Diamond (94 OVR) - PF/C
  • LeBron James - Diamond (92 OVR) - PF
  • Kevin Durant - Diamond (92 OVR) - PF

So one thing you'll notice is that two of the three are locked down to just the Power Forward position. This isn't much of a problem with LeBron James and Kevin Durant though.

They're both good shooters and can control the inside well. Each of them is a good defender that can play against the best NBA 2K22 MyTEAM lineups as well.

Domantas Sabonis is our favorite here, due to his rebounding ability and Basketball IQ. He also can shoot from outside, so don't be afraid to take the shot.

Best Amethyst Power Forwards

Amethyst is a great option for NBA 2K22 MyTEAM players on a budget. It'll take a little more talent to get the most out of your players.

Still, you'll be spending under 15K MT for some really good power forwards and if your team is more focused on the backcourt (i.e Point Guards) you can save some MT here.

NBA 2K22 MyTEAM Julius Randle
BUDGET BUYS: Julius Randle could be the perfect addition to your MyTEAM lineup

Here are our top Amethyst Power Forwards in NBA 2K22 MyTEAM:

  • Julius Randle - Amethyst (91 OVR) - PF/C
  • Blake Griffin - Amethyst (91 OVR) - PF/C
  • Dennis Rodman - Glitch Amethyst (90 OVR) - PF/C

Each of these power forwards will bring a ton of value, especially the Glitch Dennis Rodman who has A+ 3PT Shooting, A+ Rebounding, and A+ Basketball IQ.

Blake Griffin can work on the inside and score from beyond the three-point line as well. However, you'll have to get his timing down in NBA 2K22.

Julius Randle is a good mixture of both styles and he's got some physicality to go along with it. He's also one of the lesser expensive options and you could get him for under 5K MT.
