Last season, 2k introduced the idea of player archetypes for MyCareer. Players could choose to specialize in one area of the game and fill a role. This year, NBA 2k18 is expanding on that idea and will allow players to select two archetypes for your player. Want to be a 3-and-D player? You can do it. Want to be like Blake Griffin and be a point forward and posterizor? You can do it.
In order to play for the LA Clippers and quickly earn a starting role in 2k18, you will want to select a shooting guard. Yes, the guard position is deep with the likes of Austin Rivers, Patrick Beverly, Milos Teodosic and Lou Williams, but this spot is the least talented at the top. The lack of elite talent at the shooting guard spot will allow you to quickly slide into the starting role.
Now, you may ask, what archetypes should you select? To fit best alongside the starting unit, a sharpshooter will be needed. Blake Griffin may have expanded his shot to the three point line and Danilo Gallinari can also knock them down, but the team just needs more shooting. Both Blake and the stable of guards will be able to kick out to you for some easy buckets.
As for the second archetype, this is a little more up to your discretion. You could always select a defensive player and alongside Patrick Beverly, form the best defensive backcourt in the league. There’s also the option to go athletic and join DJ and Blake on the end of lobs from Milos.
Picking a sharpshooting shooting guard is definitely the easiest way to slide right into the starting group for the LA Clippers. However, we want to know what you think! What position will you be picking? Do you have any archetypes you want to try first? Let us know in the comments!
