KAT’s Attributes Breakdown
Close Shot (90): Bruh, with a 90 rating, you’re basically automatic under the basket. Anything close is like lay-up drills before the game.
Driving Layup (77): KAT ain’t just a big man, he can drive. With this stat, you’re scooping layups over defenders easy.
Driving Dunk & Standing Dunk (75 & 90): Bruh, whether you’re driving the lane or catching it down low, you’re gonna be throwing it down with authority.
Post Control (85): Got a lil’ man on you? Post ’em up! This rating means you’ve got those smooth moves to finesse your way for a bucket down low.
Mid-Range & Three-Point Shot (94 & 80): Man, you’re gonna be wet from mid-range! And you ain’t just limited to inside; you can step out and splash threes with that 80 rating.
Free Throw (84): Clutch moments?? No sweat. You’re sinking ’em from the stripe.
Pass Accuracy (60): Look, you ain’t gonna be dishing dimes like CP3, but you ain’t throwing bricks either. Solid for a big man.
Ball Handle & Speed With Ball (65 & 58): For a big fella, you got some handles. You won’t be breaking ankles, but you ain’t losing the rock every trip down either.
Interior & Perimeter Defense (70 & 65): You’re holding it down in the paint and even got some quickness on the perimeter. Opponents better think twice.
Steal (50): You might not be swiping like a guard, but you’ll get your hands on a few.
Block (77): Meet me at the rim! You’re sending back weak shots with this rating.
Offensive & Defensive Rebound (60 & 83): On the O-board, you’re solid. On the D-board? Man, you’re cleaning glass like Windex.

Aight, hoop heads! So you got that KAT build on lock. Now it’s time to really ball out with it. Let’s chop it up with some gameplay tips to make sure you’re really bringing that KAT energy to the court. Let’s get wavy!!
Dominate Inside: With that close shot rating of 90, you gotta take advantage of the mismatches. Whenever you see a smaller defender on you, post ’em up and feast!
Mix Up Your Offense: Sure, KAT can throw it down, but don’t sleep on his mid-range and three-point game. Keep your defender on their toes – pop that mid-range jumper or stretch the floor with a three.
Play Smart in the Post: Given your Post Control of 85, you can sauce up most defenders. So when you got a mismatch, back ’em down and show off those post moves.
Defensive Stance: With both solid interior and perimeter D stats, you can switch on screens and hold it down against guards. But always remember to crash the boards after.
Rebounding: Use KAT’s height and wingspan to snag those boards. With that 83 on defensive rebounding, position yourself well and box out, and you’ll own the paint.
Transition Play: KAT’s stamina is off the charts! Push the pace after boards or blocks. With a decent speed rating for a big man, you can run the floor and get some easy buckets in transition.
Protect The Paint: You ain’t leading the league in blocks, but that 77 block rating?? Enough said. Let opponents drive, and they’ll quickly learn to think twice.
Utilize Your Strength: You’re strong, like real strong. When you’re in the paint, bully smaller defenders and make space for those easy lay-ins or dunks.
Free Throws Matter: In clutch situations, don’t shy away from drawing contact. With an 84 free throw rating, you’re pretty reliable from the charity stripe.
Ball Handling: You ain’t a point guard, but you ain’t a scrub with the ball either. Feel free to occasionally bring the ball up or drive from the top of the key. Just keep an eye out for those pesky guards tryna strip the ball…
