What is the best big man build in 2K21? This is one of the best center builds in NBA 2K21, you can do everything that you want to do as a big man. With this build found by YaboiFitz, you can get a Post Playmaker, shades of Karl-Anthony Towns, Christian Wood, and Andre Drummond.
Position and Profile
Center is going to be the best position for a big man, even though we have built lots of center builds in the game, this is probably the best big man build. When it comes to the height, you can only go down to 6’9”, that's pretty much the shortest side, the best way to get as many badges and attributes with this build is the setup, for weight, you can be at the center position 219, that's not quite minimum, it's a little bit above the minimum but you still gonna have almost max speed and max speed with ball, then you have max wingspan so that's going to be pretty much helping you have a lot higher of a block, offensive rebound, even perimeter defense and steal, also having higher driving layup and driving dunk, a lot of things come together. The only negative is that your three-pointer, mid-range shot and ball handle will be lower. All in all, this is going to be the best height, weight and wingspan for this build. Last, the selection of body type is completely up to you.
Weight: 219 lbs
Starting with the physicals, you don’t have to have a high strength on next-gen, 70 vertical is enough, we actually have a max speed which is at a 78, a max acceleration is at 75, then the stamina is at 94, you're gonna be able to actually get your speed over at 80 and get stamina up to a 98 at 99 overall. To get more finishing badges, you're going to max out the driving layup, driving dunk, and standing dunk, then you can be putting up your close shot to a 37 and a post control to a 45, for the 13 shooting badge upgrades, you're gonna be maxing out your three-pointer, mid-range then your three throw is gonna be at 67, which is actually a pretty decent three throw, the three-pointer that's going to get over at 80 easily at 99 overall. Next is the playmaking, you're going to be maxing out everything, continue to go to the defense and rebounding you're going to be maxing out pretty much everything not touching into your defense, so you'll have a max perimeter defense, steal, block, offensive rebound and defensive rebound to get 27 badge upgrades. If you are a person that thinks interior defense is not needed, this is going to be the build for you.
