      Sam Pham NBA 2K20 Tips and Tutorial thanks. I just made a slashing playmaker pure play pie yesterday. With 11 defensive badges. I’ve been shooting so poor with my pure sharp, around 20%, the past two weeks. I thought that I’d probably do worse with a shooting pg with lower shooting attributes and less shooting badges. I’ll try this though. Thanks

      The offensive threat because your force defense to rotate when you PnR. But you gotta be a hell of a passer and handler to make that work

    Please help if u can, I made a 6"8 sf 234 max wingspan. I have clamps and lightening reflex on hof. Regardless of who I am guarding I always get beat off the dribble. People are much quicker and always faster. Is it my weigh? I picked the last pie charge that focuses on defense mainly. Which is called the two way finisher. Any advice and tips would be appreciated.

  • TylerEarls23
    TylerEarls23 6 days ago

    I went more diverse with my play/lock! Invested more into playmaking rather than finishing. 14 playbadges one being HOF floor general so my PG doesn’t have to worry about it. What you think?

    • ecin ztark
      ecin ztark 5 days ago

      TylerEarls23 I don’t disagree with you. I’m just pointing out what would be different

    • TylerEarls23
      TylerEarls23 5 days ago

      PG should just know who’s open though and I bet your PG would appreciate saving him a badge

    • ecin ztark
      ecin ztark 5 days ago

      For one I think your PG has +4 attributes which is good, but doesn’t know the best shooters real-time anymore. So it’s okay,, I guess.

  • Ryan Dickinson
    Ryan Dickinson 6 days ago

    Shooting lockdown C IMO is the best big man. Spreading the floor on 3v3 is important. My 6'11 C shoots 3's at 70 and has 13 shooting badges, i hit corner 3's at 60% off dimer and NO ONE guards me until i splash 2. 6 free points every game. Than the other teams big man steps out on me and my team can drive without a big man clogging the lane all game. Paint beasts work well with 2 good shooters, but with 2 slashers you need to spread the floor or your getting no where vs a big man allowed to stand in the paint all game.

      GETYADOUGHUP 6 days ago

      with no defense 3 seconds imo 7'1-7'3 paint beast and glasslocks dominate park and 3v3 pro am. in my experience tho.

  • sumit hariawala
    sumit hariawala 7 days ago

    Slashing playmaker should be built to have way more defense. With the meta of screens, it is essential to make sure that you have sufficient badges to 1) chase around screens 2) provide strong contests 3)harass ball handlers pre-screen to ensure they are fatigued and struggle initiating their offense. I would look for 8-10 defensive badges to allow for clamps, intimidator, pick dodger, and then pick pocket if you want.

    I’ve been using this but wondering how people have been doing this at a stand still. So this helped me a lot. Just so you know this is a lot easier to trigger out of the hesi and much more deadly if time properly but you risk getting ripped by the hesi.
