A point guard’s primary role is to run the offense. As such, choosing the Playmaking Shot Creator archetype seems like a wise choice
With this, your point guard has a primary of Shot Creating and a secondary that focuses on Passing & Ball-Handling.
Shooting guards, on the other hand, should be the scorer, as their name dictates.
Invest in Two Way Slasher for a primary of Driving & Finishing to get mad buckets. The secondary to this archetype is also important, giving them good defense for steals.
Similar to shooting guards, small forwards also like to score, as well as defend and grab rebounds.
Two Way Sharpshooter feeds both of these needs, with a primary of 3PT Shooting and a secondary focused on Defending.
The other forward position is all about keeping their backs to the basket in order to grab offensive and defensive rebounds.
Select the Two Way Athletic Finisher archetype for your Power Forward and combine the primary Driving & Finishing with the secondary Defending to be an all-around putback machine.
Last but not least is the big man, your Center archetype. This should be all about paint play, defending one hoop while dunking on the other.
With the Rebounding Post Scorer option, you’ll have the best of both worlds. It’s primary allows for Post Scoring on offense and Rebounding on both sides of the court.
