NBA 2K22 best builds | Best next-gen center build
Your center has a lot of responsibility, and while you could opt for a power build to help push through them all, a build focused on speed works surprisingly well.
Best next-gen center build body Settings
- Height: 6’9”
- Weight: 193 pounds (or thereabouts)
- Wingspan: 7’7”
The lighter center build affords extra acceleration and speed, two of the most important stats for a center, while the extended wingspan offers a nice boost to critical defense.
You can tweak these up or down to suit your style, but the list below is a solid starting point to work with.

NBA 2K22 best builds | Best next-gen power forward build
The power forward is like the center, but focused even more on long shots, so you’ll naturally want to focus just a bit more on shooting attributes and skills than anything else.
Best next-gen power forward build body settings
There’s some debate over what works as a good power forward body type. Some play it safe with default settings, though we’ve tried maxing out height and weight to focus on strength with some positive results.
- Height: 6’10”
- Weight: 270 pounds
- Wingspan: Max
Maxing out the wingspan boosts your strength stat even further, which is the point of making them taller and heavier as well. You lose speed, but the power forward is about, well… power.

Best next-gen power forward build Takeover
