NBA 2K16 MyPlayer Height Limits & Play Styles

Make sure to pay attention to the height you are setting for MyPlayer in NBA 2K16, as they will determine your physical abilities and limitations. Attribute upgrades will vary depending on your player's height and play style. This year we won't be seeing any 7-foot small forwards that can dribble and run as fast as guards.

MyPlayer Height Limit
  • Point Guard: 5'7" to 6'7"
  • Shooting Guard: 5'10" to 6'8"
  • Small Forward: 6'3" to 6'10"
  • Power Forward: 6'5" to 7'0"
  • Center: 6'8' to 7'3"

Scoring Types
  • Inside
  • Outside
  • Balanced

Unlike in NBA 2K15, your player's height will be a factor on how fast they run on the court. If you choose to be a tall point guard, chances are smaller PGs will outrun you. 2K Sports didn't mention anything about weight distribution so it seems like it's not a big factor this year. Also, there will be three new playing styles that will determine your key skills: inside, balanced and outside. Choose the position and play style that best fits how you like to play.

You can watch the replay of the 2K live stream below to catch all the details.
