NBA 2K16 Small Forward Build: How to Build the Best SF

NBA 2K16 small forward build

The perfect NBA 2K16 small forward build is one of the trickiest jobs. This is one of the most demanding positions in the field. One that would require you to have great stats in all areas: you have to be a great shooter, you must be able to control the ball, to defend, to rebound… everything! That’s crazy because we all know that you can’t really max out everything in the video game, so when you are in the process of NBA 2K16 Small Forward build, you’ll have to specialize your guy and agree to let a few things go away. But I have what I think is the best NBA 2K16 Small Forward for your MyCareer, so check it out as I had great results with it (I love playing Small Forward and this is what I play with right now!)

So without further ado, let’s build our future NBA 2K16 small forward. We have to start with smart choices when it comes to player creation:

Important Aspect of NBA 2K16 Small Forward

The most important aspect when creating your Small Forward in the game is choosing the right height. I would recommend going for 6’8″ or even 6’7″ for a bit higher potential stats, but nothing lower, nothing higher. I would recommend 6’8″ though since you get some extra height and the stat caps are still solid. The weight should be between 225 – 230, so you are strong enough not to get pushed away too easily, but not too bulky to be too slow. What matters a lot here is to max out the wingspan and increase or even max out the shoulder width as this will really give you the advantage in the games. Set your player to be an Outside scorer since that’s where you’ll be getting most of your points!

Now that you’ve chosen the proper height, it’s time to start improving your player’s skills. The Jump Shooter category is the obvious one to invest in early on, so max it out together with Athleticism, then Focus on Playmaker. The remaining three categories are a bit tricky. In this case, Inside Scorer, even if maxed out, will not give you too much in terms of stats (you’ll have the driving layup maxed at 66 for example, and that’s not really too much). Rebounding is also tricky because, even though the stats increase nicely, you will generally get an advantage because of the height/wingspan combination so you should not focus on it. This leaves us with Defense, which should be the next one to max out.

Finally, after maxing out these four categories, start investing in Rebounding and Inside Scoring. I’d personally go with 5 levels on Inside Scoring and 15 on Rebounding. The truth is that Inside Scoring will suck anyway, and the difference between a 50 and a 66 is not that great. You won’t be scoring your points by diving when it’s crowded, but the 50-ish rating will still allow you to score on counterattacks. Investing more in rebounding, combined with your height/wingspan ratio will turn you into a really good rebounder and it’s worth investing here instead of the Inside Scoring.

In the end, don’t forget about Boosting your stats as well because that gives you extra 5 points in each category, so you will get even better. The result? A beast of a Small Forward that will give Lebron a run for his money and one that will make it into a superstar really soon.

    I totally agree. I would say 6’8 is the best build. I would say between 230-240 you not to light and not to heavy so you won’t get pushed around. I feel like Small Forward is the best position because you can shoot 3’s and have a pretty good inside game. You will give LeBron, Carmelo, KD and Kawhi a run for their money.

    Thats all bull
    go for a 6’7″ sf with max wingspan
    Fully upgrade athleticism first then outside
    Then choose between defense and playmaking
    screw rebounding and inside scoring

    I agree. I made a 6 10 SF. Still a beast but I need a bit more speed and lateral quickness.

    I have a 6’10 250 sf currently boasting 41 badges, he literally can’t be stopped, he’s like a LeBron, Kobe, KD mixture it’s insane, I’ve averaged 60 in a season..several times

    Not Agree. I build a Balance SF. With Max winspan. 6′ 7″ 225 pounds. Jumpshot lvl 18, Inside Scoring lvl 18 Athleticism lvl 18 Playmaking lvl 10 Rebounding lvl 8 Defense lvl 20. But your player depend of your game style. I like to go to the rim. I shoot moderately from mid range and a few from three point. I always look for a lay up, euro step or Tony Parker’s specialty. You do not need much rating a Rebounding, because if you know to move well in defense you’ll get a lot of rebounds. You do not need a lot of Playmaking because if you play in a slow tempo and care the ball you will not get turnovers. You need a max high defense to move quickly and get high rate from your teammates, athleticism to run well in the court and inside scoring to be a monster of the rim. Always you have the jump shoot over lvl 10, if you dominate your jump shoot style you will get a lot of it.

    So… this way i build my Superstar SF. I get a overall of 97 like Lebron James, but I am better than him. My average is 45.6 PPG 11.5 RPG 8.9 APG 2.3 SPG 3.4 BPG
