So if you're looking to hook those rebounds and keep the offense flowing, here's our pick for the best Center build in NBA 2K24.

For the best Center build you can run in NBA 2K24, we've opted for a 7-foot-1 Center with a surprising turn of pace, plenty of ankle-breaker dribbling potential, and more.

It's a jack-of-all-trades that'll let you seamlessly transition from attack to defence, and back again as the situation calls for it - and score some delicious shots, too.

With the Gold Post Fade Phenom and Dropstepper traits, this build is a beast on either post.
