I was super excited to get this game. However I am extremely disappointed with the my player mode.
I used to LOVE my player and I was really good at it, but this year I just can't find a good shot release. ALL the releases literally require you to hold the shotstick for about 2 seconds to get the green light. That cause my shot to get blocked frequently. Anyone else have this problem?
Its funny because, I bought Kobe's shot release and I can hit with it just fine in exhibition mode, or any time I am playing with Kobe, but when I put the shot release on my player it becomes super hard.
My players midrange is at 85, however I keep getting red on the majority of my releases.
It's not just you. I skipped on 2K12 so I was coming from 2K11 and it took a while for me to get used to the longer shot releases. I used to use Ray Allen's shot because it was quick, but in 2K13 you have to hold all of them for pretty long to get a good release. It doesn't feel like your shooting the ball at the highest point in your jump shot, but rather on the way down. It's awkward.
I agree with using Melo's release. It's one of the quickest if not the quickest I've tried. Just go into practice/shootaround and practice your different shots.
