NBA 2K22’s Best Centers
The center (also known as the ‘five’) is usually the tallest and strongest player on the team and spends most of the game close to the basket. The best centers have a good post-game and can score with a variety of moves from the low post area. This is especially necessary when they get switched onto a smaller and weaker player.
