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 Isiah Thomas build. Upon completing the build you will be rewarded with an easter egg showing your player has shades of “Zeke”.
