New to NBA 2K23 are special replica builds in MyPlayer. You can unlock special nicknames by creating replicas of past and present stars. To create these replica builds, you must set physicals and attributes a certain way before starting your MyPlayer career.

One possible replica build is no other than reigning champion and Finals MVP Steph Curry. Building Steph will unlock the “Chef” nickname that can be used in MyCareer. To start your Chef build, set your physicals to match these:

  • Position: Point Guard
  • Jersey Number: 30
  • Height: 6’2″
  • Weight: 185
  • Wingspan: 6’4″

After filling out the physicals, you can set your potential attributes. These do not have to be exactly the same, but getting them as close as possible or exactly the same will give you the Chef build.

  • Close Shot: 90
  • Driving Layup: 91
  • Driving Dunk: 31
  • Post Control: 30
  • MidRange Shot: 87
  • ThreePoint Shot: 92
  • Free Throw: 88
  • Pass Accuracy: 89
  • Ball Handle: 92
  • Speed With Ball: 78
  • Interior Defense: 26
  • Perimeter Defense: 71
  • Steal: 51
  • Block: 46
  • Offensive Rebound: 29
  • Defensive Rebound: 58
  • Speed: 80
  • Acceleration: 80
  • Strength: 45
  • Vertical: 70
  • Stamina: 97

After filling out these attributes, you can choose your Takeovers. If you want to stay true to Steph’s skill set, take Limitless Range and Ankle-Breaking Shots.

The Chef build may not be the most effective playmaking sharpshooter build, but it does have quality shooting and ball-handling attributes at the cost of defense. Other replica builds like Luka Doncic, or Gary Payton are a little more balanced at the PG position, but it depends on how you like to play. There are many other replica builds to try out, so check them out below.
