Start by sinking swishes in MyCareer mode. Build your own player who’s ready to make it rain three-pointers. Eager to hit the court sooner? Duck into the totes-well-named PlayNow mode. Dribble and wiggle your way past defenders to avoid getting stuck in defensive traffic in Block City. Instead, get stuck in to squeaking out some space. Line up your shot. Time for nothing but net? You bet! Or get the scoop on an alley-oop by setting up a teammate for a soaring jam that’ll make the crowd go bam! With some court time under your b-ball belt, get ready to play pro. Pro Stick makes downtown shots feel sweeter. Plus, bounce into extra dribble moves that leave defenders slipping and sliding around you.
NBA 2K21 has an all-new shot meter. Scoring buckets means releasing the shot button on the yellow marker. This marker moves based on where you shoot from. But nailing the release point isn’t a guaranteed slam dunk. Head into Freestyle via 2KU, then pop on Hot Zones. This shows where each player shoots best from!
