  • Height: 7’1″

As for stats, the best center attributes in NBA 2K24 focus on finishing and defense, with some solid stats on shooting.

Ideally, you want to be close to the basket at all times and apply pressure while also being able to score consistently when given the space and opportunity.

Based on that, here are the best attributes for the best center build in NBA 2K24:


  • Close Shot: 99
  • Driving Layup: 85
  • Driving Dunk: 83
  • Standing Dunk: 99
  • Post Control: 99

Finishing is the bread and butter of this build and you shouldn’t skip any of these stats. Close Shot, Standing Dunk, and Post Control should be maxed out to make you a true menace whenever you get close to the basket.


  • Mid-Range Shot: 86
  • Three-Point Shot: 80
  • Free Throw: 89

Since you’ll end up being pressured and won’t get the chance to go for a layup every time, it’s important to have solid shooting stats overall.

While three-pointers aren’t your biggest strength and it’s best to leave them for shooting guards, it’s a good idea to have some attribute points here in case of need.


  • Pass Accuracy: 99
  • Ball Handle: 63
  • Speed with Ball: 55

In terms of playmaking, only focus on Pass Accuracy and ignore the other two stats. You won’t run or dribble much, so they aren’t needed.
