Skill boosts enhance specific attributes or skills of your player. For example, they might increase your player's shooting accuracy, speed, ball-handling, or defensive capabilities. The boost increase is likely a 5-10% increase to the players base ratings but will not allow the player to unlock in game animations that are gated by attribute requirements.

There are 6 different skill boosts which include Jump Shots, Layups/Dunks, Steals, Blocks, Rebounding and Ball Handling/Passing.
