Making this team list to help owners decide what team to pick. Was gonna add graphics to this List but this shit is ass 🙁
Giannis is THANOS with snipers & locks all around him. Giannis is arguably the best player in 2K history…combine that with amazing role players & Bucks are unstoppable. You can play 5 out with Giannis running the show, run pick & roll/pops with Giannis or just let him dead zone. Either way, you lose.
Grayson Allen/Pat Connaughton
Bobby Portis JR.
This team is very strong since Lebron has HOF Dimer & Bullet. HOF dimer allows AD & Dwight to green every three. With that being said you put AD at the 4 & Dwight at the 5 & you’ll lock up the paint + horse everyone. Westbrook still has all his badges & greens every shot + Melo is a SNIPER. Lakers have ELITE defense & offense…theres no weak points at all. Lakers are one of the few teams that can go toe to toe with the Bucks. AD on Giannis 🙂
Nets are a well rounded team with 3 ELITE ball handlers in Ben Simmons, KD & Kyrie. the tricky thing to this team is wether you wanna use Ben or Drummond at the 5 or try to play both at the same time. Ben is good at center but he can easily get horsed. Drummond on the other hand might be a top 5 center on the game. all though this team is stacked with talent you just cant draft anyone to play with this team. Someone like Kuhrow on Ben Simmons is a real sheet shitter. To use this team to its full potential you need 4 top tier players in the league on 1 line.
Andre Drummond/Ben Simmons
76ers have the 3 things you want on its 2k. An ELITE ball handler, a DOMINANT lock & a big. Thankfully for the 6ers Embiid is the best center on the game, Harden is top 5 ball handlers, & thybulle is up there for one of the best locks. Then you have Tobias who will green every shot along side either Danny Green or Tyrese Maxey at the 2. 76ers are loaded & you would have to try very hard to lose with them. I could see someone messing around with a lineup of DeAndre Jordan at the 5 & Embiid at the 4…could be GLITCHY.
Clippers are very good & strong team but they can be difficult to play with. I say this because Zubac is a decent center but he has 26 speed turning him into the Croatian Zombie. So with that in mind you NEED a dominant Kawhi & Paul George. kawhi is a MEGA LOCK & will clamp anyone he guards. Paul George has good handles, can green, poster & play ELITE defense. So you would have to find the right balance of VBA players to make this team work. With the best lineup I posted you would have Paul George guard rim. He has all the defensive badges you need at center & he’s big enough to where he can do it. 🙂
Nicolas Batum/Marmus Morris SR.
NEXT BEST THING
Norman Powell/Luke Kennard
Grizzlies & Clippers are interchangeable in my eyes. Whatever team suits your VBA playset is the one you should go with. Grizzlies have everything you need with an ELITE ball handler in Ja, 2 locks in JJJ & Brooks followed by an ELITE horse Steven Adams. bane is also a complete sniper…this team is so souped & loaded. JJJ can guard ball & the rim dude is insane.
Jaren Jackson JR.
Warriors are a hard team to play with but they are very good in the right hands. You need someone who can 3 hunt effectively with Curry while also having great role player users. Looney is ASS & Wiseman isn’t much better. Klay & Wiggins r souped but Draymond is VERY hard to constantly green with. So if you cant meet all the requirements to make this team good then you should stay away from the Warriors.
James Wiseman/Kevon Looney
The Suns are good but at the same time you need the right users for them to work. 1. CP3 is solid but is hard to use on offense since he is short, has a slow shot & doesn’t have good finishing badges. 2. Ayton is solid but Mcgee is essentially the better center on 2k. Ayton can green mids & threes plays good enough D & can horse a little but Javale is just a super horse & is athletic af. 3. Mikal bridges nor Cpu is a LOCK LOCK. Bridges is fine but he isn’t ELITE by any stretch. 4. Booker has shit handles so he’s a spot up shooter. So what I’m saying is if you don’t have ELITE users then pick an easier team to use.
Chris Paul/Landry Shamet
Javale McGee/Deandre Ayton
Hawks have an ELITE ball handler in Tare Young & an ELITE center in Clint Capela. The thing the Hawks are lacking is a perimeter lock. De’Andre Hunter is a decent lock but you would much rather have the 2k23 Hawks roster with Dejounte Murray. Kevin Huerter is a sneaky good player & John collins is very solid at the 4. The Hawks are very good if u get an ELITE ball handler & ELITE center. This team is can be a better version of the Warriors if played correctly.
The Jazz are a very interesting 2k team. They have a good ball handler in Donovon Mitchell & the best rim protector Rudy Gobert. Royce O’Neale, Mike Conley & Donovon Mitchell all play solid perimeter defense. Rudy Gay has ALWAYS been GLITCHY in 2k so you start him at the 4. Even tho I have the Jazz at the 10th ranked team, I could easily see someone win the Finals with them. They’re just a super braindead team that can beat almost anyone.
