Tips for Becoming a Better Shooter in NBA 2K23
The game of NBA 2K23 is a great way to have some fun and hone your shooting skills. To become a better shooter, several tips can help improve your game. One of the most important tips is to set your feet properly when shooting. It is easier to set your feet when dribbling left if you are right-handed and easier to set your feet when dribbling right if you are left-handed. To set your feet quickly, you can either tap and release the left trigger or sprint and quickly release all controls.

Tips for Knowing When to Take an Open Shot
Another important tip is to know what is a good shot. Off the catch and shoot, if your defender is a foot away and their hand is down, you should shoot the ball. This is an open shot; you can still green it if the contest is less than 20%. Additionally, when you are dribbling, and your defender is one to two feet away, and their hand is down, you should shoot the ball. This can be a pullback or a snatchback; you can still green it if the contest is less than 20%.
How to Improve Your Shot Speed When Low on Stamina?
Stamina is an important factor when shooting. NBA 2K Lab did a test and discovered that the same shot with full stamina had a shot speed of 620 milliseconds, while the same shot with no stamina had a shot speed of 700 milliseconds. This means your shot speed is 80 milliseconds slower when you are low on stamina. To combat this, you can buy Gatorade boosts every 10 games, giving you an extra edge.
Creating Your Fast Jump Shot
Another tip is to get a good, fast jump shot. A faster jump shot means less time for your defender to contest, leading to more open shots with fewer contests. You can find a good fast jump shot in the game or create your own.
Shooting Greens in the Gatorade Facility
Finally, practice makes perfect. It would be best to practise in the Gatorade facility because it has the closest latency to the game. Spend 30 minutes to an hour a day practising, rebounding for each other, and only shooting greens. This will help you build your muscle memory and learn how to time your shot.
If you follow these tips and put them into practice, you will be a better shooter in no time. Good luck!
