Complete List of NBA 2K League Archetypes / Builds (5v5) for NBA 2K23

The NBA 2K League 5v5 season tipped off yesterday, and with it came the revealment of the official NBA 2K League 5v5 archetypes / builds. The NBA 2K League uses a special version of the NBA 2K23 archetype system for NBA 2K League gameplay – ideally to promote gameplay balance and fairness among the teams.  Each archetype at each position has various build characteristics (height, weight, badges, etc).

Each NBA 2KL team gets the opportunity to choose which specific NBA 2KL archetypes they want for their roster, with teams deciding on which builds to use that they think will best complement their players, desired playstyle, and strategic gameplan.
