Last Updated:

NBA2K21 has finally arrived and sets to be another storied edition in the 2K legacy. with updated graphics and player scans, new improvements to MyTeam, updated MyCareer storylines, and with the inclusion of the WNBA everything seems to be on the right track.

Now they’ve patched the awful shooting mechanics, everything seems to be leading towards a beautiful day in the neighbourhood for NBA2K21. We are going to be focusing on the SF position for today’s build for MyCareer mode.

For this build, we are going to be moulding them in the LeBron James, two way finisher image as a player with the forward scoring capability but also the facilitating and slight defensive capability in their position. So if you want to dominate like the King in MyCareer then follow this guide! 

Put a strong emphasis on the Defense and Finshing skills here at the pie chart stage, with this enabling us to be a strong presence at both ends of the court.

Our physical profile is an even spread as this allows us to be able to run the court, get into position, and also move quickly into space and off the ball as well as being strong enough to contend on dunks and layups and rebound well with a good vertical potential.

Finishing and Defense/Rebounding gets the focus here so its best to attempt to max most of these out, especially anything that can increase your chances at the rim such as dunking, post moves and layups. You’ll also want to make sure you max your perimeter defence, lateral quickness and rebounding.
