OK, so I recently had a stretch about a week or two ago where I was more able to compete in online games than I ever have been. Then about 5 days ago (give or take a few), everything just went to the crapper. Here are the problems I’m having, and if anyone has advice then I would greatly appreciate it:
1.) I’m missing at least half my putbacks. Even with GO Shaq (who was a beast when I first copped him 10 days ago…now, he’s just so-so).
2.) I’m starting to see the big disadvantage I face by not knowing how to perform these hoppity-hop, skip-to-my-lou dancing around dribble moves these guys do. Now, I see the temptation in off-balling. So, my question is how do I defend in a one-on-one situation at the top of the key? How do I keep from overcommitting laterally when the dude is dancing around like Ricky Martin on crack, and how do i keep from being made to look like a crippled person when someone feints the drive just to snatchback a J in my face (yes, the snatchback is alive and well in 2k19)?
3.) Possibly part of the cause of #2 is my usage frequency of the turbo button. I’m beginning to think that the turbo button really does more harm than good. I feel like this kills me on defense AND offense. Is it possible that taking shots while holding the turbo button can decrease the chances of a make in certain scenarios?
4.) Also, I think the L2 button is causing me difficulties. This button was a savior at the beginning of the year when people would spam X. But now when I use it specifically on offense, I feel like it jacks up my animations. Anyone else experience this?
I’m sure there’s more but I’m going to leave it at that for now. Comments appreciated.
