NBA 2K22 is out and everyone is rushing to build their own version of an unstoppable demigod. Point guards are the biggest stars in the NBA today as quicker and volume shooting guards have taken over from traditional big men. 6 of the 15 All-NBA players in 2021 were point guards, whereas seven of the 15 All-NBA players in 2020 were point guards.

Some of the biggest contracts go to point guards now, and every gamer who turns on MyPlayer Builder in NBA 2K22 eventually itches to build a high-scoring point guard.

Which is the best point guard build in NBA 2K22?

Not all point guards are the same and everyone has a different definition and application of a point guard. Magic Johnson, who is regarded by many as the greatest point guard of all time, is a 6-foot-9 beast who defended, led the league in steals and assists. On the other hand, Stephen Curry, who is regarded by many as the second-best point guard right behind the Magic, is a 6-foot-3 wiry player who can shoot lights out and hasn't led the league in assists even once.

It depends on what kind of point guard you find ideal and you can accordingly build your player. In this article, we take a look at three builds that will be excellent for a point guard in NBA 2K22.
