In NBA 2K22, if you push the sprint button or use a bunch of dribble movements, your stamina is going to drop off the cliff. This wasn't as major of a problem in the past because you could still perform well even when you're tired. The shot meter of 2K22 decreases as your stamina declines and your release speed slows down. This reduces your ability to take shots, which allows you to give your opponent more time to take advantage of your.
So, our advice is to slow down. With stamina, shooting is in fact a little more enjoyable this year. It is possible to take advantage of this by being more cautious and you will find the success you desire.
If you're an offline participant, one big tip is to make use of the modifications Visual Concepts made to AI help defense. Before, defenders would decide to take your pick and leave you free. If you could not score you could hunt three times on the wings.
2K22's defensive players don't hit as often which makes it possible to play a game of pick-and-roll which is more like an NBA game. It's now all about understanding defenses and making the correct decision. If your center asks you to set a pick but your player switches to you instead and you decide to throw your pick to the bigger man and let him work against a less imposing defense. Congrats on the open lane. Make your way to the bucket and make a layup.
Simply hold down L1 (LB) on your Xbox and point to the player who you would like to initiate a pick-and roll. The key is to take your time. Don't force the switch if you are unable to locate it or can't find any track. Try resetting and trying again. You're trying to be smart and fast.
