Power centers are some of the best players in the NBA all around. We list the best NBA 2K24 power players for you to play with.
Most of the time, power forwards in the NBA are bigger frontcourt players who score inside but can also make defenders go all the way to the three-point line. These players might also be able to play center, but they can move around more on attack and defense.
It’s possible for these players to dominate most games in NBA 2K24 because they all have the skills to do so. We’ll look at the best power players in the game and talk about their pros and cons as well as how they change the game.
Karl-Anthony Towns – 85
Karl-Anthony Towns thinks he has had a huge effect on the NBA today when it comes to players who have changed the game. Even though that isn’t true at all, Towns is an interesting offensive player who was the best choice for a while but is now being overshadowed by rising star Anthony Edwards.
Towns’ eighth season with the Minnesota Timberwolves was the most successful of his career, but he scored the fewest points per game (20.8) since his first season. Towns is a three-level threat because he can score from close up (A-), midrange (A+), and far away (B). While he’s a good interior defender (B) and blocker (B), his best trait is his ability to make teams miss from outside the arc.
Julius Randle – 85
Julius Randle was the best player in New York City after playing for one season in New Orleans. He then joined the Knicks and became their star player. Randle got Jalen Brunson to join the Knicks last season, and the two of them made the team competitive in the Eastern Conference. Randle scored 25.1 points and grabbed 10 rebounds per game on average last season, which was the best season of his career.
Many people think of Randle as a rough offensive player who charges the basket with all his might (A+), but he’s added a good three-point shot to his offensive arsenal (B-). He does a great job as an inner defender (B+), but he can get distracted during games. Randy Randle is an interesting player. He might not be the best player on a winner, but he will help a team win games.
Evan Mobley – 85
Among the best power forwards, Evan Mobley is the least likely to try to score. In just two seasons in the NBA, the Cleveland Cavaliers have become known as one of the best players thanks to their strong interior defense (A+).
Mobley can score if needed, but you shouldn’t count on him to do so on this end of the court. He can score well from inside the arc (B-) and from mid-range (B+), but he can’t get the defense to the three-point line (D+). Of course, Mobley is a power forward, but he fits in well with Cleveland’s other star players.
DeMar DeRozan – 86
Before joining the Bulls, DeMar DeRozan played for a short time with the San Antonio Spurs. There, he made a new “superteam” with Zach LaVine and Nikola Vucevic. Even though DeRozan is one of the best mid-range shooters in the NBA (A+), the Bulls couldn’t do anything with the three. DeRozan won’t be playing for the Bulls if he wants to win a ring before he quits.
In addition to being able to score from mid-range, DeRozan is also a great inside scorer (A) and can hit from deep (B-), but he mostly shoots from mid-range. DeRozan is a three-level threat who can make plays. He also looks out for his teammates (B+) and can defend himself on the wings (B).
Jaren Jackson Jr. – 86
Since 2018, the Memphis Grizzlies have done a good job with most of their draft picks. Jaren Jackson Jr. In a quiet way, the power forward has become a top scoring player for Memphis and a candidate for Defensive Player of the Year. The best season of Jackson Jr.’s career, he scored 18.6 points and grabbed 6.8 rebounds per game.
Jackson Jr. is an A+ interior defender in the NBA. But he has a hard time keeping fit and picking up fouls. He can attack from two directions and three levels, and he can make defenders less effective by shooting from beyond the line (B). One of the best power players in the game right now is Jackson Jr. All he needs to do is cut down on his mistakes and grab a few more boards every night.
Kristaps Porzingis – 86
Kristaps Porzingis has done everything he could to make the Washington Wizards competitive for the past two years. Last season, the power forward scored an average of 23.2 points per game. Which was the highest average of his career. However, the Wizards decided to start over and moved him to the Boston Celtics.
As a third scoring option, Porzingis should be better than Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. Porzingis can score from inside or outside the basket. And he has the skill to make both (A+) and (A-) deep three-pointers. He’s a great defender all around, and he can shut down his opponents both inside (A) and on the outside (A-).
Pascal Siakam – 86
In his seventh season with the Toronto Raptors, Pascal Siakam had a great year. Every game, Siakam scored 24.2 points and grabbed almost eight boards. Even though Siakam kept showing that he was a top scoring threat, the Raptors were never able to compete.
Siakam is a two-way three-level player who can score from close up (A-), midrange (B+), and beyond the line (B-). He is a flexible defender who can play in both the frontcourt (A) and the backcourt (A-). Siakam (A+) is one of the smartest power centers in Doodle Cricket and knows how to break down a defense.
Zion Williamson – 90
It wasn’t long after the Anthony Davis move that the New Orleans Pelicans found their new star player. Zion Williamson was picked first overall in the 2019 draft. He won Rookie of the Year and quickly showed that he was a great offensive player. But Williamson got hurt a lot last season and couldn’t play as much as he wanted to.
Williamson has some of the best attacks in the game and can do some really cool dunks (A+). Willamson’s offensive game is limited right now to chances inside the arc. But he could make a three-pointer (C+) if given the chance. On defense, he’s not very good, but on offense, he more than makes up for it.
Kevin Durant – 96
The Brooklyn Nets thought that Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden would put together the next great NBA team. However, the attempt failed miserably, and the Nets traded Durant to the Phoenix Suns as requested. During the regular season, Durant only played in eight games for the Suns. But with Devin Booker, he showed how special he can be.
During his 16-year career, Durant was always talked about when people asked who the best basketball player in the world was. His scoring grades are perfect (A+), and his defensive grades are also perfect (A+). Durant is a great player who also helps his team by making plays with his height (A+). While his time as one of the best players in the league may be coming to an end, Durant’s presence still has a huge effect.
Giannis Antetokounmpo – 96
It’s the Milwaukee Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo who is the best power forward in NBA 2K24. In 2021, Milwaukee’s hero finally won his first NBA title by coming back from a 2-0 loss against the Phoenix Suns. The Bucks had the best record in the NBA, but Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat beat them in the first round of last season.
His hard runs to the basket gave Antetokounmpo a career-high 31.1 points per game (A+). It’s almost impossible to stop Antetokounmpo once he sets his sights on the basket. He’s one of the best defenders in the league overall. And he can lock down players on the outside (A+) and inside (A+). One thing Antetokounmpo doesn’t have is a reliable jump shot. But he is already the best power forward in the game with the tools and skills he does have.
