How to set up a Small Forward Stretch build
Small Forwards play pivotal roles in both scoring and defense, often contributing as occasional playmakers in NBA 2K24. In our approach to this build, we prioritize a well-balanced allocation of attributes, recognizing the multifaceted responsibilities of a Small Forward Stretch.
To kickstart our Small Forward Stretch build, we allocate 86 points to Driving Dunk, alongside 70 points each in Close Shot and Driving Layup. This strategic distribution aims to unlock the Posterizer badge, significantly improving your success rate with slam dunks.
For our shooting prowess, we invest 93 points in Mid-Range Shot, 86 points in Three-Point Shot, and 70 points in Free Throw. This configuration, coupled with essential shooting badges like Limitless Range, Catch and Shoot, and Blinders, ensures your long-range attempts are less prone to interruption and more precise, forcing defenders to venture farther from the paint to cover you compared to an average shooter.
As a Small Forward Stretch in NBA 2K24, your primary objective is to accumulate points through dunks and three-pointers, compelling opposing defenses to spread thin when you have the ball. This manipulation of defensive positioning opens up opportunities for your teammates. To facilitate this, we allocate 80 points to Ball Handle and 75 points to Speed with Ball, granting access to playmaking badges such as Blow-By and Unpluckable, enhancing ball control and evasiveness. This combination allows you to maneuver effectively against defenders and make accurate passes to open teammates.
Turning to the defensive aspect, we allocate 81 points to Interior Defense, 80 points to Perimeter Defense, and 80 points to Block. This distribution bolsters your ability to thwart opposing attackers who breach the paint, while also unlocking some of the most effective defensive badges available.
In the physical department of our SF Stretch build, we invest 81 points in Speed, 82 points in Vertical, and 93 points in Stamina. This setup enables essential offensive badges like Boxout Beast, Speed Booster, and Handles For Days.
Furthermore, we incorporate defensive utility enhancements, including Chase Down Artist and Clamps, which augment your ability to steal the ball and stifle opponent shots.
