Takeovers

Some guides say that you have to pick the correct takeovers to make a replica build work, in our experience that isn’t the case so pick whatever ones you’d prefer. It is possible this changes based on the console (i.e current gen vs. next gen).

This is all the information you need to unlock the Larry Bird build. Upon completing the build you will be rewarded with an easter egg showing your player has shades of “The Hick from French Lick”.

Play Style

This is a decently rounded-build. It has finishing, shooting, playmaking, and even some defending. As far as Small Forward builds go this might be one of the cleanest I’ve seen so far. Make the most of what this build offers and you should be a three-level scorer with the ability to drop dimes at a moments notice.
