Best Point Guard Builds in NBA 2K22

Physical Profile
For your Point Guard, you shouldn’t care that much about strength. Instead, focus on your speed, agility and vertical. Choose the chart with the most agility and vertical and the least strength.

The main thing you want to maximize on this build is your shooting ability. So, of course, you need to max out everything in the Shooting category. This will grant you with a surplus of Shooting Badges.

Also, max out Pass Accuracy, Ball Handle and Post Moves. You will get a lot of Playmaking Badges out of this. For Finishing, max out Close Shot and Driving Layup. Get Driving Dunk and Standing Dunk to a relatively high amount as well.

For Defense, allocate a lot of points to Perimeter Defense and Lateral Defense. Then, use your remaining points on Steal.
