9/16/2022 4:22:01 PM

All the new replica builds that are coming out with NBA 2K23 has sent the 2K community in an absolute frenzy and as you make these player builds, the player nickname will actually appear as the build name on your player card whether you're in the park, the city, the wreck. But while these build names are super dope, the attributes aren't that great and you could probably make something better on your own MyPlayer with the correct thresholds. Today we rank all these replica builds in a tier list in terms of how usable and fun they can actually be in terms of the park or the wreck, so you can pick the best one. 

NBA 2K23 Top Replica Builds Rankings & Tier Lists - Best Rare Builds On NBA 2K23

NBA 2K23 has been out in the wild for merely a few days, and players have already unearthed a long and growing list of special replica builds of all-time greats. These builds are unique and rare builds in NBA 2K23 that need to be created a very specific way, even down to the jersey number of the build. Let’s get straight into this complete ranking tier list of best replica builds on NBA 2K23 (shared by NBA2KLab).

S Tier Replica Builds On NBA 2K23

Chauncey Billups

Then we have “Mr. Big Shot” replica build, he is in the S tier due to his well-rounded abilities. He's really good, he has solid shooting with great playmaking and perimeter defenses at 90 and to round it out, he has great physicals with 80 strength and is the only point guard out of these replica builds to have enough strength to even unlock bronze bully. 

Richard Hamilton

Then we have Rip Richard Hamilton who has the second highest three ball with an 88 and has great thresholds for playmaking to unlock some decent packages. His finishing also includes a 70 driving dunk and an 85 layup to be a well-rounded scorer. Now he has good defense with an 85 perimeter defense and 70 steal with a 6’11 wingspan and while his physicals aren't great and slightly below average still very much serviceable which is why this well-rounded replica build makes the S tier.

Hakeem Olajuwon

Then we have Hakeem “The Dream” and he makes an appearance in the S tier as his paint mashing abilities will be tough to stop and he even has decent shooting compared to the other PGs on this list. Not only that but his inside defense and rebounding is great as well, a solid choice for the S tier.

Nikola Jokic

“The Joker” won't wow you with his inside finishing but it's still more than solid. But what makes him a tier is his exceptionally high pass accuracy compared to the other PGs. Not only that, but he has the best mid-range with an 89 and his defense is pretty bad all around which makes sense, but that's why we don't have him in the S tier.

Demarcus Cousins

Off the rip, Baby Boogie makes the S tier with his 97 standing dunk and the best shooting among all PGs on this list with an 80 mid range and an 83 point. His defense aside from perimeter is great and he has great rebounding making him an easy choice for the S tier.

A Tier Replica Builds List 2K23

Chris Paul

He's got great shooting with a 91 midi and an 82 three point which makes him a viable point guard off the rip. His playmaking is great and even gets hall of fame, quick first step, he's also one of the better defenders out of all the pgs here. But since he's pretty short with lower than average acceleration, we have him in the A-tier instead of S when it comes to the replica builds.

Stephen Curry 

We have the stephen curry “chef” build and he has great shooting and driving layup, he's your typical play shot with serviceable defense at an 80 perimeter and unlocks the curry slide in all elite dribble packages although you can't get his dribble style since he only has 87 speed with ball. A solid replica build that you can definitely have some fun with.

Vince Carter

Next we have vince's replica which makes for a very fun well-rounded build. We have him in the A tier, he has 96 driving dunk and an 83 point with enough playmaking for decent sigs, slightly below average defense but still has a 72 perimeter to hold your own. His speed and acceleration are both 80 with a 91 vertical and he would be in the S tier if he had slightly better defense or play making. The half man, half amazing build would be really fun in the park or even the wreck, so that's why we have him in A tier.

Shawn Marion

Then we have “the matrix” and he makes the A tier because he's a very well-rounded wing, he has pro contacts and above average shooting with an 83 midrange and an 81 three point. His playmaking is not good at all, but considering his role, he's not much of a ball handler anyways which allows for his defense to be great across the board. He's got interior defense, perimeter, rebounding and a little block with 85 steal and actually surprisingly solid physicals, he is actually a really good build if you're trying to make an all-around lockdown build.

Paul Pierce

Then we have “The Truth” Paul Pierce and he's in the A tier due to his 91 three-point shot which is easily the highest among all wing players. He's got 80 ball handle for some good packages and very solid finishing. Being 6’7’’ with a 6’11 wingspan and 87 perimeter, he makes for a solid defender as one of the best well-rounded replica builds so far. He is a bit slower when it comes to physicals and lacks speed with ball, but can still get some dribbling packages to improve that, otherwise he would be in S tier.

Clyde Drexler

Another A-tier wing player is Clyde “The Glide”, actually has a great build and it makes the A-tier for how well-rounded and fun this build can actually be. Equipped with a 93 driving dunk and all elite contacts, he's a great finisher and can be a consistent shooter with an 84 mid defense and even a 77 three point. He has decent but slightly below average play making and solid all-around defense. With better speed and acceleration, he would definitely be in the S tier.

Shawn Kemp

The “Reign Man” Kemp makes the A tier with his 93 driving dunk which is the best among any PGs which makes this build pretty unique. He has absolutely no shooting really which definitely limits his scoring ability, but he has the highest speed with ball among these PGs and has very well-rounded defense with great rebounding and the best physicals among the big men as well. He can most likely score at will in the paint which puts him in the A-tier despite his no shooting.

B Tier Replica Builds List NBA 2K23

Gilbert Arenas

"Agent Zero" replica build is very quick with his speed and acceleration and is one of the better play shot options out of all the pgs with great shooting, 92 ball handle for the elite six and he has 75 dunk which is one of the higher ratings out of the point guards. He lacks defense though which is why we have him in the B tier.

Gary Payton

"The Glove" build obviously has great defense with 90 perimeter and a 91 steal with a 60 wingspan for a point guard, and with the physicals to match, he has little to no driving dunk though with solid layup to unlock some decent packages and his playmaking is actually borderline elite. If you're making a point guard to slash play great defense and get some steals and can hit the occasional midi, he's definitely a good pick.

Penny Hardway

Then we have “Lil Penny” who has the best well-rounded finishing among the point guards in this list. Especially considering his 83 dunk and 6’7’’ stature, serviceable shooter with 77 mid-range and 3-point with great play-making, having 91 ball handle, but due to his low defense and average physicals, we have him in the B tier instead of the A tier.

Luka Doncic

Next, we have “The Matador” and he has slightly better shooting than penny but even worse defense. He does have great playmaking and enough ball handle to unlock gold clamp breaker and some really good packages, but his speed and acceleration are below average and he doesn't even have an 83 point according to his replica build, so we have Luka in the B tier.

Kobe Bryant

This young “Mamba” build goes into the B tier and while he has great inside finishing enough for pro contacts and all the layout packages, he has a good midi with an 86, but only a 71 three point which would be tough to be consistent in this year's 2K. His playmaking is good enough for some packages but still lacking for a Kobe build especially with speed with ball, his perimeter is an 87 which is pretty good and it's a well-rounded build, but we do have him in the B-tier. 

Demar Derozan

Derozan makes the B tier with his great inside finishing and dunking ability and also has great mid range with an 87 mid, 77 three point which is better than most of these wing builds. His playmaking is okay but not great, and his defense is pretty bad although he does have a 77 perimeter, “Deebo” definitely makes for a good slashing build that has decent shooting ability. 

Kawhi Leonard

Then we also have Kawhi “the claw” in the B tier as well due to his highest in-class perimeter defense among these wing players with a 92 perimeter and a crazy 7’3 wingspan which is about the same as a lot of the centers on this list, but he only has a 77 steal which is not like the claw exactly. He's fairly well rounded but not great in any one area besides defense which makes him a B tier replica build in NBA 2K23.

Magic Johnson

Then we have “magic” and his attributes besides playmaking are definitely lacking and even his speed with ball is pretty bad, the shooting will be tough to be consistent with shooting attributes in the low 70s, that being said he does have decent defense with 80 perimeter and 80 interior which will probably work well being 6'9 and about average physicals. But since he's so tall with 90 close shot and driving layup, he will be solid against other shorter pgs making him a decent build, his unique style for his height definitely puts him up a tier into the B category.

Tim Duncan

"The Big Fundamental" makes the B tier for his well-rounded build which has everything but three-point and play-making. He has the best interior defense and blocking ability of all the big men and he's got a 70 mid-range which can be serviceable and he has a 98 post control. So the big fundamental makes sense to be in the B tier.

C Tier Replica Builds On NBA 2K23

Allen Iverson

Next, it's tough to justify “The Answer” any higher because of a shooting and below average finishing. If you are good with layups though he can be effective in that area, his physical is ranked among the top of the pg's, but he would essentially be used as a slashing playmaker just hard to use being six foot with no shooting.

Jerry West

Then we have Jerry West “the logo” replica build, he has very good shooting and very good defense with a 90 steal, 87 perimeter which would be really good especially with his 69 wingspan. He also has solid playmaking and he's one of the more well-rounded point guard replica builds, that's why he is in the A tier. 

De'Aaron Fox

Then we have “swipa” in the C tier, but he is the best slashing playmaker out of all the guards and can definitely finish at the room effectively with both layups and dunks. But he has a 69 three point shot, so with that, we have to bump him into the C tier and also his defense is some of the worst. He is however very fast and can possibly be justified into the B tier depending on your play style.

Dwyane Wade

Next we have “flash rare dwyane wade build” and the shooting is pretty bad, but he does have great driving layup and great defense with the 610 wing spin, but his driving dunk is actually pretty low for dwyane wade. He will work good as like a slashing defender with a little playmaking, but with low shooting and low driving dunk, this replica build is more in the C tier.

Michael Jordan

If you were mad before, you'd probably be even more upset with this one, Michael Jordan has great finishing and gets elite contacts on this build, but we have him in the C tier because he has a 53 3-point which severely limits his effectiveness, he's got solid but not great defense, with good steal and good physicals and playmaking that is similar to Kobe, but with that three point it's tough to justify him in any other tier.

Zion Williamson 

Next we have zion, he has great finishing with a 93 dunk and 94 layup. So if you're looking for a cool build name with a lot of finishing, he's definitely your guy. He's shooting, his 70s across the board and his playmaking is only okay, but he lacks severely in defense and will get cooked in any game mode since he has a 51 perimeter and 55 interior which puts “Zanos” in the C tier.

Larry Johnson

Put Larry in the C tier because of his nickname “Grandmama”. Kidding aside he has solid inside finishing with great standing dunk and good strength for hall of fame bully, but he's very underwhelming in a lot of the other categories and while he has decent interior and speed, his other attributes are just not enough to justify putting him any higher.

Dominique Wilkins

Then we have the “Human Highlight Film” and we put him in the C tier because while he does have elite contacts, the rest of his build is lacking with low shooting awful playmaking and while his defense is just okay, he’s just okay. He doesn't have any other good attributes, he has solid physicals but doesn't have enough other good attributes to be any higher.

Kevin Garnett

Kevin Garnett goes to the C tier because his replica build doesn't really wow us in any area and while his defense is solid, it's only okay when we're thinking about “The Big Ticket”. He does have an 88 mid range and okay inside finishing, but rebounding is a little below average compared to the other guys, so that's why we have him in the C tier.

Dennis Rodman

Now if you're strictly playing defense and looking to rebound, “the worm” build will be more A tier with his 99 rebounding. But since his other areas lack so much besides his great standing dunk, it's tough to put him anywhere else on this tier list since he's so one-dimensional.
