The Rim Protector badge is revamped for NBA 2K20 and improves player’s ability to block shots, unlocks special animations and gives a boost to the Takeover meter for the blocker and blocker’s teammates following a block.

Rim Protector is a top defensive badge for any build with some badge points, as it unlocks a set of animations and also increases the chances of blocks at any level.

The badge works pretty well on Bronze, as it unlocks animations and allows most builds to start getting blocks. However, it does get better on higher levels, especially for defensive big men.

Recommendation: Defensive big men should max out Rim Protector, while non-defensive builds should get it on bronze. Most guards, whether defensive-focused or not, would benefit from Bronze Rim Protector.
