NBA 2K22 Giannis Antetokounmpo Build

Are you looking to build one of the most dominant forward builds in NBA 2K22? I honestly believe that this NBA 2K22 Giannis build is one of the most well-rounded and fun builds to play. Here’s how you do it.

Firstly, when we look at Giannis’ actual playing profile, we see that his archetype is that of a two-way slashing playmaker. So we need a player that has a high offensive and defense IQ, can breeze past and through defenses, and is good with the ball.

Inside scoring, Basketball IQ, and Perimeter Defense are going to be our target attributes with this Giannis build.

The first thing to notice here is that our Giannis build is actually 6’8″, which is three inches shorter than real Giannis. If you go for 6’11” you’re not going to end up with a Giannis build, and some attributes are going to take a hit. They don’t call him the Greek Freak for nothing: he’s truly unique!

We also want this build to be slightly heavier than the real Giannis, because we need to increased strength, rebounding, and both defensive capabilities to be high on the attribute list.

Now let’s break down his attributes and badges.

I know what you’re think: barely any real shooting attribute spend, and 0 Shooting Badges. How in the hell can this build be any fun to play? Well, he’s a defensive beast, is superpowerful on the inside and getting position, and is pretty much dominant within reasonable distance from the basket.

As for his badges, this aligns with his actual real-life badges: his highest distribution of Badges is across Defense/Rebounding and Finishing, which is exactly where this build ends. He’s a defensive and boarding beast, and his going to be clashing through defense with ease. His ball handling skills make him pretty much impossible at his height and strength when driving.

As for his takeovers, there’s a range you can go for here but I chose Stuff Blocks, and Glass Clearing Dimes. Your team will be invincible and you’ll net an A+ every single match. Trust me.

I think this build is good for NBA 2K22 players that want something different. You’ll have the ball a lot with this guide, and his finishing and defensive capabilities are second to none! I recommend giving it a shot before judging it based on the attributes and badges.
