Maurice Cheeks '93
Amazing Budget PG
Written by Nba2kGod11
Bought for: 4k MT
Defense: Straight up, this is one of the best defensive point guards in the game. 97 perimeter D and 96 lateral quickness, gold clamps, interceptor, pick-pocket, pick dodger, and 95 pass-interception + 98 on-ball steal tendency???!!! That is absolutely ridiculous for a day 1 card. I know he's 6'1 but that doesn't really matter in the beginning stages of the game. Mo Cheeks is a clamp GOD.
Slashing: 85 speed, speed w/ball, and acceleration are fantastic. Also comes with Handles for Days, QFS, and Unpluckable all on Gold. The Pro 6 BtB is nice too. This man can blow by people with ease.
Layups: This guy's layup package is insane, he gets amazing layup animations at the rim that don't get contested easily. Also has an 87 driving layup. This is key for a slasher.
- Playmaking: Gold Dimer and Needle Threader are key badges, also has great passing stats.
Can't Dunk: While his finishing is incredible, he can't actually dunk it.
Shooting: Ok release but 70 three is not great. 81 mid though so he will hit some leaning mid-ranges, which are the meta right now.
- Is 6'1
Recommended Strategy: Use him as a defender that can attack the basket when needed.
Use if: You want one of the best budget point guards in the game.
Don't use if: You need shooters.
Bottom Line: A top-tier PG in Nba2k21 MyTeam that I definitely recommend you pick up.
