Nikola Vucevic Review

Written by Zip_Fische

When I first got NBA2k18, I was certainly not looking to center my defensive-based lineup around Nikola Vucevic. However, as I hopped into my first game with him starting next to Serge Ibaka(77), I noticed how quickly Vucevic was able to click into the offense. Up to this point, Nikola is my most effective player on the offensive end.

Bought for: pulled in free gold player pack

Strengths:

  • Inside scoring: Great at finishing near the rim
  • Rebounding: always gets offensive boards; second-chance shots too easy
  • Shooting: adequate shooter from both mid-range and behind the arc, 10-20ft shots automatic

Weaknesses:

  • Playmaking/ball-handling: It's a center, what do you want?
  • Passing: can pass out during plays, should not be at the top of the 3-line feeding the paint
  • Defense: in my opinion, the one flaw with this card. Occasionally gets in a block or two, but easy player to post up on in the paint

Recommended Strategy: "Pick-n-Roll [finisher], post-up, put-back dunks"

Other Comments: "when using Vucevic, make sure you pair him with a big in the front court that excells in defense [ex. Steven Adams, Nerlens Noel]"

Use if: "You need a big that can throw it down/finish at the rim, hits jump shots"

Don't use if: "You need a point-center, or Dikembe-like defense"

Bottom Line: "Offensive-focused big, nice player to use while starting out."
