NBA 2K23 Secret Build – How to make Luka Doncic ‘The Matador’ Special Replica

Become The Matador!

Mavericks Star PG Luka Doncic has many skills in NBA 2K23 and can be replicated in MyPlayer using a secret build. Unlocking Luka's secret build will grant you "The Matador" nickname to use in MyCareer. Here is everything you need to do to get the Luka Doncic special replica build in NBA 2K23.

First, you must fill out the basic physicals to match Luka, meaning you must have the same height, weight, wingspan, and jersey number. Here are the physicals to match to get the build:

  • Position: PG
  • Height: 6'7"
  • Weight: 230
  • Wingspan: 6'10"
  • Jersey Number: 77

Body type does not matter for the build, but all other physicals must be the same. The next step is to fill out the potential attributes. These attributes have a little leeway to adjust, but not much, so you may want to experiment to get the attributes close to what you want, or just copy the potential attributes to get a guaranteed Matador build.

  • Close Shot: 88
  • Driving Layup: 87
  • Driving Dunk: 68
  • Standing Dunk: 48
  • Post Control: 75
  • Mid-Range Shot: 80
  • Three-Point Shot: 79
  • Free Throw: 79
  • Pass Accuracy: 89
  • Ball Handle: 87
  • Speed With Ball: 76
  • Interior Defense: 46
  • Perimeter Defense: 66
  • Steal: 59
  • Block: 55
  • Offensive Rebound: 66
  • Defensive Rebound: 80
  • Speed: 76
  • Acceleration: 76
  • Strength: 64
  • Vertical: 68
  • Stamina: 90

Once you have set your potential stars, you can choose Takeovers, which should not affect the build. To stay true to Luka's skill-set, you will want Finishing Moves, Negative Impact, or any Team boosts.

After setting your Takeovers, you should be rewarded with the Luka Doncic Matador replica build. It may not be the most effective build for Park or Rec games, but you will have good size and decent attributes across the board. Many replica builds are still being discovered, including some of the greatest, like Michael Jordan and Kobe.
