Physical Profile
Here, you should pick the most balanced pie chart. This will grant you good agility and vertical, and great strength. Your high strength will make it easier for you to get past guards and dunk.

Using your attribute points efficiently can be a bit tricky. First and foremost, you must remember to use them efficiently to maximize your badge gain.

As this build is a Shooting Guard, just max out everything in the shooting category.

Then, in the Finishing category, get Close Shot, Driving Layup, Driving Dun maxed out. You should also allocate some points to Standing Dunk.

In the Playmaking Category, max out Ball Handling and Post Moves. Also, give some points to Pass Accuracy.

Finally, in the Defense Category, allocate a lot of points to Perimeter Defense, Lateral Quickness and Steal. Then, give some points to Interior Defense. It is also a good idea to use some points for Block, so you can get more Defensive Badges.

Height – 6’5”
As you increase your height, your agility decreases; which you don’t want. So, for the Shooting Guard build, 6’5” seems to be the best height as you retain your speed and agility, while still being big enough to go through small guards.

Weight – 196 lbs
For your Shooting Guard, you should keep your weight low to be quicker and more versatile on the court, but just low enough so that you have decent strength. 196 lbs seem to support this idea.

Wingspan – 79.9”
If your arms are too long, it will decrease your dribbling speed, which you don’t want. Keeping your wingspan at 79.9” will grant you adequate speed, coupled with decent ball control and shooting.

This is entirely up to you. Our recommended Takeover for this build is Shot Creator.

Finishing Badges
