The definitive guide to create a LeBron James build in NBA 2K21 next gen. NBA 2K21 Next Gen Lebron James Build guide

With NBA 2K21 next gen now available on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, NBA 2K players are already experimenting with the new and improved My Player Builder, with some of the best builds coming with some fairly crafty attribute distribution. But how does one create a true superstar? How does one create a LeBron James build in NBA 2K21 next gen?

LeBron James is never an easy build, because he can play across so many different positions, is so highly proficient across roles and skills, and yet is also incredibly dominant in others.

Let’s break down the LeBron James for NBA 2K21 next gen.

We’ve got a reasonably tall small forward, coming in at 6″7, fairly heavy at 228lbs, with a 6″11 wingspan.

  • Position: SF
  • Height: 6″7
  • Weight: 228 lbs
  • Wingspan: 6″11

Now let’s have a look at attribute distribution.

As you can see I have a fairly even spread across all three main badge groups, with Playmaking and Finishing having the highest number (as expected).

Given the player’s build and attribute distribution there’s a lot of range for this build. Steal was one area I compromised to get this build up to where we needed it. I feel it’s fairly accurate across the board otherwise.

For your Takeovers, you want Finishing Moves as your Primary, and Limitless Range for your Secondary. And that’ll do it: you have a LeBron James/Scottie Pippen hybrid.
