The Best Small Forwards in NBA 2K21 MyTeam

Small Forwards play a pivotal role in every game on both ends of the floor, making it necessary to have a good one on your squad. Here are the top 5 SFs in NBA 2K21 MyTeam right now:

  1. Pink Diamond Terry Dischinger: A great all-around option for the 3 spot. HOF Range Extender, Intimidator, and Quick First Step along with a great jumpshot make this TTOffline card the best Small Forward.
  2. Opal Jimmy Butler: The first auctionable opal is a 3-and-D beast that can even work as the featured player on your offense.
  3. PD Paul George: Whether it’s as a 3-and-D or your focus player, Paul George is an all-around monster that clocks in as the best SF in MyTeam right now.
  4. PD Giannis Antetokounmpo: Super athletic and dominant on both defensive and offense. Struggles at shooting, but his upper echelon finishing ability makes up for this deficiency.
  5. PD Danny Granger: A dominant shooter that is well-rounded in other areas as well. Has a smooth and quick jumpshot, and comes with Hall of Fame Range Extender at base level.

Rise Up

Rise Up is a new badge for NBA 2K21 and increases the likelihood of dunking the ball when standing in the painted area. It replaces Pick & Roller from current generation 2K21.

Recommendation: Rise Up is a top-five finishing badge and will help you dunk the ball more. We recommend it for most builds who finish in the paint a decent amount.

Posterizer

Posterizer is a new badge for NBA 2K21 Next Gen and increases the chances of throwing down a dunk on your defender. It replaces Showtime from 2K21 current generation.

Recommendation: Posterizer is a must-have badge for players that can dunk. It is a top-three finishing badge on Next Gen and helps you get a great number of contact dunks.

Hook Specialist

Hook Specialist is the name-changed replacement for Deep Hooks from NBA 2K21 current generation to next gen. This badge gives a boost to post hooks from any distance.

Recommendation: This badge is only good for Post Scorers, who should put it on Hall of Fame.

Highlight Film

Highlight Film is a new badge for NBA 2K21 Next Gen and gives a Takeover boost to all your teammates’ takeover progress on fastbreak or stylish dunks performed by your player. It replaces Fastbreak Finisher from NBA 2K21 current generation.

Recommendation: With Showtime not in next gen 2K21, this badge is the next best way to boost your teammates’ Takeover. However, the boost is not big enough for us to recommend it for your slashing build.

Heat Seeker

Heat Seeker is a new badge for NBA 2K21 Next Gen and gives a Takeover meter boost for shots taken around the painted area, including dunks and layups. It replaces Cross Key Scorer from current generation 2K21.

Recommendation: Heat Seeker is a must-have badge for any players that score in the paint at all, as it provides awesome Takeover boosts that help you dominate games even more.

Fearless Finisher

Fearless Finisher is a new badge for NBA 2K21 Next Gen and strengthens a player’s ability to absorb contact and still finish. Also reduces the amount of energy lost from contact layups. Fearless Finisher replaces Relentless Finisher from current generation 2K21.

Recommendation: Fearless Finisher is a top 5 finishing badge for slashers, but we wouldn’t recommend spending a ton of badge points on it if you don’t have a decent amount of badge points.

Special Delivery

Special Delivery is a new badge for NBA 2K21 next gen and gives a takeover boost for both the passer and receiver after a flashy assist. Additionally, this badge increases alley-oop success and shot chance for receivers after a flashy pass. This badge replaces Lob City Passer from NBA 2K21 current generation.

Recommendation: Special Delivery is a highly effective badge for its job, but is only necessary if you’re using flashy passes and lobs frequently. Otherwise, it’s largely useless.

Relay Passer

Relay Passer is a new badge for NBA 2K21 Next Gen and gives a shot boost to a the player receiving a pass after your pass (meaning a third player, not who you pass to). This badge replaces Flashy Passer from NBA 2K21 current generation.

Recommendation: Relay Passer is not a necessary badge for playmakers, but can possibly be a highly effective badge for teams with good ball movement.

Bullet Passer

Bullet Passer is a new badge for NBA 2K21 Next Gen and speeds up how quickly a player gets the ball out their hands as well as the velocity of the pass. This badge replaces Pass Fake Maestro from NBA 2K21 current generation.

Recommendation: Bullet Passer is a must have for playmaking builds, as it truly does boost how quickly you get the ball to your teammates for easy buckets.
