Before pouring in that valuable VC into your NBA 2K22 MyCareer build, it's highly recommended to watch a video or two to make sure you know what you're getting yourself into.

As always, with a number of hidden requirements needing to be met for your player to be able to unlock certain Badges and animations, it can take hours of experimenting with pie charts and physicals to find a good build.

Of course, there also isn't one ultimate build in the game—it depends on your playstyle and position. However, it is undeniable that certain archetypes are likely to lead to winning than others. While both current gen and next gen have seen revamped MyPlayer builders once again, here are the early returns on the best demigod builds in NBA 2K22.

Stop me if you've heard this before, but in current gen, perhaps the sweatiest build at the moment is a Playmaking Shot Creator. An offensive juggernaut with 25 Shooting and 24 Playmaking Badges, as well as a safe build to make at this stage in the game, this point guard is the go-to build for those looking to iso, run off screens and just be cheesy overall.
