NBA 2K24: Best Lockdown Build


Yo, ballers! If you clicked on this, you must be looking to be the terror of the hardwood, right?? That one defender that makes everyone’s night a nightmare. Well look no further!! This guide is about to lay down the blueprint for the most elite lockdown build in NBA 2K24. Let’s get into this!



The Basics: Setting the Foundation

  • Position: We’re running with a Guard. Why? Flexibility. You’re quick enough to guard those pesky PGs and SGs but still tall enough to hold your own down low if needed.


  • Height: Lock that in at 6’7”. That’s the sweet spot! You got the height to contest and the agility to keep up with those slippery guards.


  • Weight: Hover around 210 lbs. You’ll have enough muscle to body up and not get bullied by bigger matchups, and you won’t sacrifice too much speed.


  • Wingspan: Max that out. Those long arms? That’s the difference between a swatted shot and a highlight dunk on your head.



Attribute Spread: Where the Sauce is

  • Driving Layup and Dunk: If you’re gonna be a two-way player, these need a little love. Maybe not max, but at least around the 80 mark. Never hurts to score when the opportunity strikes.


  • Mid-range and 3PT Shot: Bump both up to 75. Why? So defenders respect your shot. You ain’t gotta be Steph, but they can’t leave you wide open either.


  • Perimeter & Interior Defense: No brainer. MAX OUT. You want to be THE lockdown, right?


  • Steal & Block: Again, max these out. Swipe those passes and send those shots to the stands.



Badge Breakdown: The Game Changers

This is where you get that extra spice.



Shooting Badges:

Catch & Shoot: If you’re gonna be playing off-ball a lot, this is your go-to.


Corner Specialist: It’s a crime if you don’t have this on at least Silver.



Defense/Rebound Badges:

Clamps: Hall of Fame. Non-negotiable. Lock up those dribble gods.


Intimidator: Your matchup even thinks of shooting? Make them second guess.


Interceptor: They pass? That ball’s yours.


Chase Down Artist: For those sneaky fast breaks, you’ll be coming from behind like a hawk.



Fine Tuning: Takeover and Signature Styles

Takeover: Go with Lockdown Defender. You’ll be shutting down Superstars and making players cold in no time…


Signature Styles: Cop that Kawhi Leonard style. He’s the poster child for this build. From the shot form to the dribble style, you’ll look and feel like a menace on the court.



Tips & Tricks: Making the Most of Your Lockdown

  • On-ball Defense: Use the right stick. Don’t spam steal. Wait for the perfect moment and time your swipes.


  • Use Your Body: Use that strength and weight you put on. Body up on those drives. Make ’em feel you.


  • Pick & Roll Defense: Go over screens and keep that distance. You got the speed to recover…


  • Help Defense: Always keep one eye on your matchup and one eye on the ball. Rotate and fill those gaps.
