2K Day may be over, yet the fever has not gone down as we have plenty of things to be excited about after 24 hours of giveaways, rewards and, of course, an intense session of 2K hoops.

Although most of the ballers jump right on to MyCareer or MyTeam game modes to try and get a jumpstart against the rest of the pack, there is always other classic modes like just battling the AI in an NBA match.

Maybe you can also try NBA 2K22 MyNBA mode, and we want to share with you one of the most intriguing teams that could be your go-to pick whenever you want a squad that combines a swiss knife for an offence with a suffocating defence.

Although the roster may be listed as a Tier 2 or 3 depending on who you ask, there is an undeniable talented young core in Motor City, which can be the strategy in the long run as they are only the 3rd youngest team in the NBA.

  • OVR: 82
  • INS: 74
  • OUT: 80
  • ATH: 78
  • PLA: 68
  • DEF: 61
  • REB: 57
  • INT: 76
  • POT: 82

Yes, this is not you Los Angeles Lakers or Brooklyn Nets where you will have a star flooded roster, but, intriguingly, the Potential rating is only 4 points lower than those 2 teams.

The doubter questioned the contract given to this team’s star, Jeremi Grant, last season, but now he silenced them and will be leading this young team to greater things, with this year´s #1 Overall draft pick alongside him:

  • Jerami Grant: 82 OVR, 78 3PT, 85 DNK
  • Cade Cunningham: 80 OVR, 81 3PT, 75 DNK
  • Saddiq Bey: 78 OVR, 82 3PT, 60 DNK
  • Isaiah Stewart: 78 OVR, 77 3PT, 70 DNK
  • Kelly Olynyk: 78 OVR, 77 3PT, 60 DNK
  • Hamidou Diallo: 77 OVR, 76 3PT, 93 DNK
  • Saben Lee: 75 OVR, 76 3PT, 85 DNK
  • Josh Jackson: 75 OVR, 71 3PT, 75 DNK
  • Cory Joseph: 75 OVR, 76 3PT, 30 DNK
  • Frank Jackson: 74 OVR, 82 3PT, 65 DNK
  • Trey Lyles: 73 OVR, 79 3PT, 65 DNK
  • Rodney McGruder: 73 OVR, 82 3PT, 50 DNK
  • Killian Hayes: 71 OVR, 69 3PT, 60 DNK
  • Isaiah Livers: 69 OVR, 80 3PT, 65 DNK

Detroit Pistons strategies in NBA 2K22

This team is not meant to have a single player to take over the game; although Grant or Cunningham are totally capable of doing so, they rely on a full 48-minute effort that really challenges every team´s stamina.

If we were to single out those two, they do have the advantage that both are three-dimensional scorers as they can attack the paint, take advantage of their mid-range game or snipe you from three-point land.

Beyond those two, Hamidou Diallo, Saben Lee and Frank Jackson are great rotational players that can help you from the bench and really be a headache for opposing teams.
