NBA 2K24: Best Teams To Play For As A Point Guard (2024)

Point guards are as close to the NFL's quarterback equivalent as there is. Gamers in NBA 2K24 who make a point guard want the ball in their hands on every play for the offense and want to take on the best ballhandlers on defense. It's a challenge but a very rewarding one with the right situation.

Points guards are talented in this era, so it can be tough to find a team that is in need of a good one. Many of the teams in NBA 2K24 that have needs at point guard are also a disaster at other positions. Thankfully, there are a handful of teams that are only one point guard away from title contention.

Toronto Raptors

The Raptors don't have any of the game's highest-rated players but they also don't have anybody with a terrible rating outside of Dennis Schroder at point guard. That's a perfect place for the MyPlayer to step in and take over and star.

The rest of the team is solid enough to play their roles but they also are going to step aside and let the MyPlayer do what they want. Toronto is the place to be for gamers who want the flexibility to score at any level or pass with success.

Minnesota Timberwolves

Similar to Toronto, Minnesota needs a point guard. But unlike the Raptors, this squad has a pretty strong identity. Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards, one of the best shooting guards in the game, are scoring machines and Rudy Gobert is a defensive master in the paint.

Players at point guard for the Timberwolves will want to carve out a careful role that can pass to their best weapons. On defense, make sure to lock down the perimeter. Feel free to be aggressive with steals since a slasher will still have to deal with Gobert to score.

Miami Heat

Bam Adebayo

The lowest-rated starting point guard in the game is Kyle Lowry. This means the Heat, despite making it to the Finals last season, are the easiest team to step in and start at the point guard position. Caleb Martin at power forward isn't great, but the rest of the team is quite impressive.

The obvious highlight is Jimmy Butler, one of the best small forwards around, who will help at all levels on offense and defense. Herro and Butler are incredible passing targets, so leading the league in assists in Miami is very doable, even as a rookie.

Utah Jazz

The Jazz are a pretty muted team with nobody great and nobody bad. They could use a true superstar on the roster, especially at the point guard spot. After replacing Collin Sexton, the team will be at least competitive with even the best teams in the league.

If Utah gets one of the best point guards, they could still use some assistance on the inside. This is a great place to average triple-doubles with big rebound potential. Also, making a slasher or dunker will be useful as the team could stand some more inside scoring presence and won't get in the way of a point guard who wants to take this role.

Boston Celtics

Jaylen Brown

Jayson Tatum

Kristaps Porzingis

The downside to playing for the Celtics is that Derrick White is still pretty solid. However, he's tied for the lowest-rated starter on the team. It may take a few extra weeks to grab the starting job from him but the payoff in Boston is better than any other team on this list.

Tatum, Brown, and Porzingis can all shoot from any level on the court, so the playmaking potential for the Celtics is unfathomably high. This is a team that has been close to a championship for the last several years and they're just one MyPlayer at point guard away from winning the title easily.

NBA 2K24 is available now for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
