This build took quite a bit of time to land: I created quite a few three-way scorers and strong defenders, but I never quite landed on a build with actual shades of Kobe Bryant. Thankfully, with some subtle changes to weight, height, and wingspan, I managed to create a player with shades of a young Kobe Bryant.
Firstly, looking at his building attributes:
- Height: 6’6″
- Weight: 229 lbs
- Wingspan: 6’8″
We’re then targeting a mostly well-rounded build with strong proficiency across Finishing, Shooting, Playmaking, and Defense / Rebounding. You should flesh out this build’s Physicals first and foremost to ensure you’re able to get the desired Stamina and Strength, which are key attributes for this build.
Looking at how this distributes across the build’s badges, and we have good variation for a player of Kobe’s ilk: we want a player that’s a jack-of-all-trades, rather than a player that’s proficient in only one specific area.
“Finishing Moves” and “Pull-Up Precision” are the two takeovers I’ve gone with for this build as it gives us an additional offensive boost in the proficiency stakes down the like: Kobe being Kobe means we want a player that is clutch down the strength so I feel that these of the available Takeovers fit best.
And the end result is the illusive Kobe Bryant build!
