How do you hit shots in NBA2K21?

  • Stick when grab and shoot or post disappear. Button from anyplace in close. Is not it more difficult to pick your layup if you use button? I've always struggled with those controls and used stick for MT NBA 2K21 layups. I would really like to be shooting at 40% but I am blessed if I can hit 20%. I only play offline. I know we have scrub players right now, and I am a below average player but badly even layups that are in the middle of the meter aren't going in. I do not even dare to try a jump shot. The AI appears to be absurd levels as well. I understand they wish to reward skill in 2k21 but this kind of stuff will really put off casual players and people new the 2K franchise and brand new to basketball games.

    I have been playing since 2K13 but I have never been that great of a participant. My starter players've never played this bad in 2k16,17,18,19 and 20. The only other 2K I played with 2K20 was 2K13 and which was on PC. I improved a hell of a lot in 2K20 to the point where I really could go as high as Superstar without using STS. But this is a whole new level using a completely different mechanic. I did fine in the demo and in the quickgames with the new shooting meter but can not hit the side of a barn here.

    Only played the demo, however, the stick was a great deal more reliable than button to get me. I have been a button guy too. . Mostly broad open shots... and this was on allstar not even thinking to go at the rec center. . Genuinely shooting 2/16 in a offline triple hazard game on just layups and 1 open jumpshot which airballed on marginally early. Spent $100 for this bullshit lmao. Person that the shooting is extra nice right now but that I would advise shot timing like appearance for the que on the cartoon.

    Yep I am having trouble with it as well. Launched a match on My group heading 0/12 overlooking open 3s and midrange shots all around the area. I'm all for them toning down shots being nearly automatic but the system looks just a tiny bit too unforgiving so far. Hopefully will begin to get better after a few more games of Buy NBA 2K21 MT getting used to it. The game came out and we have ta brand new meter with slightly different time.
