How can you hit pictures in NBA2K21?

  • Stick when grab and shoot or post fade. Button from anyplace in close. Works for me but it took a bit of MT NBA 2K21 practice. Is not it harder to pick your layup in case you use button? I have always struggled with these controls and used stick for layups. I swear I feel as if I've wasted $149 (Aussie dollars). I'd LOVE to be shooting 40% but I am lucky if I can hit 20%. I just play offline. I understand we have scrub players at this time, and I am a below average player but badly even layups which are in the center of the meter are not going in. I do not even dare to try a jump shot. The AI seems to be absurd levels as well. I understand they wish to reward skill in 2k21 but this kind of stuff is going to really put off casual gamers and people new the 2K franchise and also new to basketball games.

    I've been playing since 2K13 but I've never been that good of a participant. My starter players have never played this awful in 2k16,17,18,19 and 20. The only other 2K I played with before 2K20 was 2K13 and that has been on PC. I improved a hell of a lot in 2K20 to the point where I really could go as large as Superstar without using STS. But this is a completely different level with a completely different mechanic. I did ok at the demonstration and in the quickgames using the brand new shooting meter but can't hit the side of a barn .

    Only played with the demo, but the stick was much more dependable than button to get me. I have been a button man also. I've got a 75 3 pointer, I think I greened one shot like 5 nba games. . Mostly broad open shots... and this was on allstar not even thinking to go from the rec centre. . Genuinely shooting 2/16 in an offline triple hazard game on just layups and 1 open jumpshot that airballed on marginally early. Spent $100 for this bullshit lmao. Person that the shooting is extra fine right now but that I would recommend shot timing like look for the que about the cartoon.

    Yep I'm having difficulty with it as well. Launched a match on My team going 0/12 overlooking open 3s and midrange shots all around the area. I am all for them toning shots being nearly automatic but the machine seems a tiny bit too unforgiving so far. Hopefully will start to get better after a few more matches of Buy NBA 2K21 MT becoming used to it. The game just came out and we have ta brand new meter with slightly different timing.
