A special replica build of the back-to-back MVP Nikola Jokic can be created in NBA 2K23 MyPlayer by following a few steps in the creation process. Making the Jokic special replica build will also grant you “The Joker” nickname that can be used in MyCareer. Here is how to create the Nikola Jokic special build in NBA 2K23:

First, you must fill out your physicals and jersey number to match Jokic’s. Here are what you will need to set them as.

  • Position: Center
  • Height: 6’11
  • Weight: 284
  • Wingspan: 7’3″
  • Jersey Number: 15

After filling these out, you can move on to setting your potential attributes. These do not have to be exactly the same but need to be very close to get the special replica build. NBA 2K content creator Uncle Demi has been one of the first 2K players to discover and share special replica builds, including attribute requirements, so following the potential attributes exactly has proven to get the special build. Here are the attributes that will complete The Joker build.

  • Close Shot: 90
  • Driving Layup: 83
  • Driving Dunk: 82
  • Post Control: 87
  • MidRange Shot: 89
  • ThreePoint Shot: 72

For the Takeovers, you can choose the ones you would like to use, but the best ones to go with are Post Playmaking, Post Daggers, or Advanced Post Moves.
