NBA Playgrounds Players Guide: The Best Dunkers, Shooters, And Defenders NBA Playgrounds Players Guide: The Best Dunkers, Shooters, And Defenders
Let's take a look at the best players in NBA Playgrounds, and their stats. NBA Playgrounds Players Guide: The Best Dunkers, Shooters, And Defenders

NBA Playgrounds is stacked with some of the NBA’s all-time greats, but there are plenty of “Common” players with great stats to help guide you to victory.

A nice balance between 3-point shooting, dunking, and stealing/blocking will go a long way towards help you easily get through tournaments and online matches.

It’s going to take you a while to get some of the Legends listed below, but we’ve put together this article to help you farm card packs and unlock every player a little bit faster.

Part of what makes NBA Playgrounds so much fun is the extravagance of it all, so always try to have a really good dunker in your team, preferably one that doubles as a good blocker or rebounder. Shawn Kemp is a good example here, because he can come out big on both ends of the court. A lot of the game’s best dunkers aren’t really good blockers or rebounders, but many have a high steal rating.

If you go with a player like Drexler that has a high dunk and steal rating, you can settle for a good 3-point star like a Nowitzki, who is fairly well-rounded, but for some reason doesn’t have a very high block or rebound stat.

So who are the best dunkers, blockers, stealers, and long-range shooters in NBA Playgrounds? Let’s take a look.
