What’s good Sports Gamers. With the success of our Top 10 Shot Releases video, we decided to stroll down in the comments of the YouTube video and see what players you guys mentioned the most that should have made the list. So without further ado we bring you our top 10 Shot Releases in 2K17 commenter addition.
10. Carmelo Anthony (New York Knicks)
Melo’s release is legendary because of the high arc he has that has the ball above his head and how fast he can get the shot off. Can’t count the amount of times dudes ISO me with Melo I’m in my stance and bam swished a shot all in my face before I could even react. Then 2k loaded Melo with every possible badge that assures you’re going to have the highest possible chance of making the shot opposed to a mere mortal.
9. Bradley Beal (Washington Wizards)
He has a little delay in his shot as he gathers himself that can throw off your timing at bit, but his actually shot is very Klay Thompson-esque with the 90 degree angle of his elbow on his release making it very easy to see the ball and get off the shot, although you have to hold a little longer that you would assume to get green.
8. C.J. McCollum (Portland Trail Blazers)
You can just stare at the ball on his release, because of how high it’s over his head, and because of his quick release point makes it one of the more consistent jumpers in the game.
7. Kyle Korver (Cleveland Cavaliers)
He was this close to making the Top 10 Shot Release Video and its obvious why. His shot is so fast, he doesn’t even really jump it’s all elbow motion once you hit the button the shoot and the fact he’s one of the best shooters in the entire game makes you scared if you give him even an inch of room.
6. Damian Lillard (Portland Trail Blazers)
Another candidate who almost made the last vid, Dame has a very quick release that you let go of on the way up and he has 80 or above in every shooting category and gold difficult shot and limitless range badges making for a dominant 2k player.
5. LaMarcus Aldridge (San Antonio Spurs)
Surprised this wasn’t hire, because “The Aldridge” is quite popular in a lot of circles. His release is weird, it’s like he’s turning into his shot, which as a result makes it easier to time and consistently get green releases funny enough.
4. Chris Paul (Los Angeles Clippers)
Now I can’t lie….Chris Paul guys…. really? I’ve never been a fan of his shot but a few of you guys had his release down here. Help a brotha out? You have to hold the ball for an eternity to even get a green with his release. No Bueno!
3. John Wall (Washington Wizards)
Despite not being the best of shooters, John Wall has an easy release to time and hit green on due to him almost putting the ball behind his head to shoot giving you an endpoint and something to focus on making his release almost like a slingshot.
2. Kevin Durant (Golden State Warriors)
Durant’s release has been the trickiest for me to master for a while now. A lot of the time it would catch me slipping and I would let go on the way down or mad early, because of how fast it is, but mainly the quick flick he does when he brings it above his head throws me all off, I know it’s not that hard and him landing 2nd on the list proves that. To the non-dummies out there y’all probably laughing, online they’ll catch that joint with Durant and splash in my face no hesitation. I will get his shot down……..eventually.
1. Steph Curry (Golden State Warriors)
Curry just has a real smooth feeling shot, you know what I mean, no jerky motions or elbows flying around when you hit the shoot button. Just a compact gather and launch. It’s funny thou, Curry’s shot is nice but is it legendary in 2K and the name you guys most brought up because the player who uses it can hit shots from half court in real life or is it really a deadly jumper in 2K that if you gave it to a 50 rated player he could ball, just something I thought about…and like most things it’s probably somewhere in the middle. Anyways, Steph Curry who doubled the mentioned of Durant runs away with the number one spot on Sports Gamers Online Top 10 Shot Releases in 2K17 tallied by you guys!
So alright Sports Gamers, do you agree with the list and if not blame your fellow commentators down below. And stay tuned for more NBA 2K17 content to come at Sports Gamers Online!
