Creating Centers in NBA 2K23 is tougher due to the new build system that completely changed how attributes affect badges. Nonetheless, we have created a few builds that will help you maximize your contributions out of the 5 spot.

The All-Around Center

Here is a short, no-nonsense video on the best all-around center build in NBA 2K23:

This build will dominate nowhere, but do a little bit of everything. It can finish in the paint pretty well, shoot off the catch very well (for a center, anyway), and defend very well.

It get a bunch of badges in finishing, shooting, and defensive, but not all of the top ones. That’s ok, though, as you will be the center that gives the other team headaches when you’re pulling from deep while swatting away shots in the paint.


Coming soon. Thank you for your patience.
