Arrived last September 10 on the shelves for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X | Yes, we have thoroughly described it in a long-winded review that you can find by clicking here. Leaving aside some technical flaws that 2K has been carrying out for years now, the 2022 version of the title captured us both for its excellent technical and aesthetic quality, and for the amount of modes and things to do added this year. We don't want to repeat ourselves though, so we refer you to the review in case you want more details.

Who is the Center? 

The Center, in basketball, is typically the tallest player on the team and is usually positioned under the basket both in attack and defense.

On the defensive level, however, it deals with collecting dangerous rebounds or blocking opponents shots. We will divide this article into two distinct parts: the one related to creating the best possible center build in NBA 2K22 for Current-Gen (PS5, Xbox Series X | S) and for Last-Gen (PS4, Xbox One). 



Before you start creating your MyPlayer, you will need to create one the physical appearance of the face. There are many physical parameters to retouch, from the color of the skin to that of the eyes and, even more significantly, that of the hair.
