Honestly, we didn't time it this way. Personally, I'm a Heat
fan -- have been as long as I followed NBA
, our reviewer, however, is a different kind of follower. He now has four boasts and three jerseys... if you catch my drift.
At any rate, in the wake of today's Lakers
championship win, here's his very, very in-depth review of NBA 2K21
A downtown from his fateful turnover:
But NBA 2K players aren't trying to make it into the actual NBA. Nobody is getting into the PS4 gym at 4AM to put up 400 shots on the new meter before practice even begins. And that's sort of what you need to do to utilise this shot meter — to make anything but a wide-open shot, you need your release to be instinctual, but without hours of practise you'll need to look directly at the shot meter to make sure you don't brick it.

For me, it was enough to warrant simply turning the new system off. I play on All-Star difficulty anyway, and eventually, 2K patched the game to make it so it wasn't a problem for me. But that's an issue, because the new shot meter is the key differentiator between day-to-day play of 2K20 and 2K21.
