How to create the best jumpshot in NBA 2K24

When you create a jumpshot in NBA 2K24, there are some particular things you need to pay attention to. Ideally, you want to have a release speed of A+, and the same goes for the release height, timing stability, and defensive immunity.

Having an A+ defensive immunity is especially important. That's because defensive immunity impacts how effective the shot is when opponents contest it.

However, be aware that to equip most releases, you will need to have a minimum rating on a specific shooting attribute, such as three-point shooting.

Now, after you learn how to change shot meter and how to shoot, let’s see how to create the best jumpshot in NBA 2K24.
