NBA 2K24: Best Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Build

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar NBA 2K24

Yo, what’s poppin’ fam? If you’re lookin’ to straight up dominate the paint and put cats on a poster in 2K24, then this Kareem Abdul-Jabbar build guide is what you need. We’re talking sky hooks, nasty boards, and that elite inside presence – Kareem style.



Man, who’s Kareem Abdul Jabbar??

Kareem? That’s big hoops energy right there, on God. My man put in work for 20 seasons in the NBA, mostly repping those Lakers, but had a minute with the Bucks too. But yo, that skyhook? When he hit that move, you already knew it was buckets every trip.


Six rings on his fingers, six MVPs to his name (still untouched, by the way), and pulled up to the All-Star game 19 times. Dude was wildin’! And don’t get it twisted; it ain’t just about dropping points. Kareem was locking it down on defense like a beast.



The Blueprint

Position: Center


Position: Center Height: 7’2″

Man, with this height, you’re seeing over everyone. Tower over those guards and make ‘em regret driving in on you.



Weight: 225 lbs

A bit on the lighter side for a center, giving you that mobility. Don’t sleep, though – still strong enough to bully in the paint.



Wingspan: 7’5″

Those arms stretch on forever! Snag rebounds, contest shots, and make that skyhook look even sweeter.




Close Shot: 92

Yo, 92? You’re basically Mr. Automatic in the paint. Putbacks, layups, short hooks—you’re cash money.



Driving Layup: 79

Not exactly prime Kyrie, but more than enough to get the job done as a center. Finish those breaks with style.



Driving Dunk: 78 & Standing Dunk: 85

You’re no Vince Carter but hey, you’ve got enough bounce to rattle the rim. That standing dunk though? Lob city, baby.



Post Control: 86

You got moves down low like a chess master. Whether it’s a drop step or a shimmy, defenders gonna have a hard time with you.



Mid-Range Shot: 52

Aight, this ain’t your bread and butter, but you’re a center, right? Just focus on dominating the paint.



Three-Point Shot: –

Not even on the radar, but who needs threes when you’re dunking and skyhooking over everyone?



Free Throw: 52

Uh, hit the gym for these, bro. Hack-a-Shaq might be in play. But hey, even Shaq won rings!



Pass Accuracy: 60 & Ball Handle: 62

You ain’t about to run point, but you can handle the rock well enough to not embarrass yourself.



Speed With Ball: 50

Look, you’re no Usain Bolt, but you’re not a sloth either. Get down the court and set up shop.



Interior Defense: 85

Make the paint your personal no-fly zone.



Perimeter Defense: 44

Leave the perimeter to the guards; you’ve got the paint on lock…



Steal: 30

Don’t go gambling for steals; your game is in the post, not the passing lanes.



Block: 92

This is where you shine! A 92 block rating? Bro, you’re swatting shots like flies at a BBQ.



Offensive Rebound: 75 & Defensive Rebound: 85

You’re a monster on the boards. Whether it’s cleaning up the glass or securing the D, you got it.



Speed: 59 & Acceleration: 51

You’re not going to outrun guards, but you’re agile enough to beat most bigs down the floor.



Strength: 82

Got enough muscle to tussle in the paint. You’re gonna be a problem down low.



Vertical: 78

For a big man, you can get up! Expect some posterizing plays.



Stamina: 98

You’re a machine, dude. Run the floor, bang in the post, and still have gas left in the 4th.

Gameplay Tips: Breakin’ It Down with Kareem’s Build in NBA 2K24

Alright, hoop heads, let’s deep dive into how to maximize this Kareem Abdul-Jabbar build on the hardwood.


  • Paint Dominance: With that close shot of 92? Bruh, you need to be living in the paint. Call for the ball, post up, and let those putbacks, layups, and hooks fly. Live down there like you pay the rent.


  • Fast Breakin’: You got a decent driving layup and dunk. So, whenever you snag that board, look to kick-start that fast break. With your height and wingspan, you’re a lob threat. Lob city, remember?


  • Post Moves for Days: With a post control of 86, it’s time to channel your inner Hakeem. Use that drop step, and don’t be afraid to throw in a shimmy. Get those defenders dancing and then punish them.


  • Keep It Mid-Range (Or Closer): Listen, Steph Curry you ain’t. Stick to the paint or, at max, mid-range. Your shot ain’t cash from deep, so why venture out there? Let the guards handle the splash…


  • Free Throws Matter: You’re gonna get fouled, especially with how much you’ll dominate in the post. Put in the work at the charity stripe. It’s free points, bro.


  • Ball Handling: You can handle the rock a bit, so don’t be afraid to take your defender off the dribble if they’re sleeping. But remember, you ain’t AI, so don’t get too fancy.


  • Interior Wall: Defense wins championships. Period. With that 85 interior defense and a block of 92? Man, protect that house. Block party at your place every game night.


  • Stay In Your Lane: You’re a beast in the paint, but the perimeter ain’t your playground. Stay home, protect the basket, and let the guards and wings handle those pesky sharpshooters.


  • Boards Over Everything: Crash the boards hard. You’re the landlord of the paint, and those rebounds are your rent. Collect them all.


  • Stamina on Fleek: You can go hard all game long. Push the pace, dominate both ends, and when it’s clutch time? You’re still fresh.
