Wondering how to make the "His Airness" Michael Jordan Special Replica build in NBA 2K23? We've got you covered.

In NBA 2K23 on Next Gen, perhaps one of the coolest features that the community has discovered early on is the game's hidden collection of Special Replica builds. From "Mamba" (Kobe Bryant) and "Chef" (Stephen Curry), to "Big Country" (Bryant Reeves), players who manage to input a certain combination of position, physicals and attributes will discover a Special Replica build archetype name that can be displayed throughout the City and more in MyCareer.
