Best Budget Cone! INCREDIBLE

Written by Nba2kGod11

Ruby Bruce Bowen is a god in this game lads. He's the definition of an elite cone, plays like Doug Christie 2.0. The fact that he's only 2k MT means you've got to pick him up if you're on a budget. Don't hesitate, I will explain why he's so good in this review.

Bought for: 2k MT

Strengths:

  • Defense: One of the best perimeter defenders in this game. Bowen's got 96 perimeter defense and lateral quickness with Gold CLAMPS. Also has Gold Intimidator, Pick-Pocket, and Pick Dodger, all important defensive badges. Elite defensive tendencies of 86 pass-interception and 78 on-ball steal as well. 6'7 SG. A near-perfect defensive card, and he's a ruby. Insane defense, will clamp up the opposing PG for you.

  • Shooting: He has an 88 3pt with key shooting badges like Gold Corner Specialist, Catch-and-Shoot, and Hot-Zone Hunter(hot zones from 3pt range in the wings and corners, this is very important he'll hit from there consistently). Bruce Bowen has Base 40 which is Boris Diaw's release, it's money.

  • Can Dunk a little with 65 driving dunk + 80 driving dunk tendency

Weaknesses:

  • Disgusting Dribble Sigs, his speed is bad for a SG too. Doesn't have any playmaking badges either.

  • 63 FT this isn't a huge weakness though as he won't be going to the line too much

  • No Finishing Badges, bad layup package. Apparently he misses a lot of open ones for some reason too.

Recommended Strategy: Use as a C O N E that's what he does really well. Hit open catch-and-shoot 3s and play incredible defense.

Other Comments: Better than some Diamonds; tactical downgrade from amy Klay.

Use if: You want a pure cone.

Don't use if: You got more MT or want a SG that can create.

Bottom Line: A really good value card that I recommend you pick up.
