The aiming concept also applies to finishing layups from Sunxuemei's blog

Moves 2K21 MT were. Jump finishing and shooting in the rim were points of emphasis. We really wanted to create scoring the basketball a skill both from the perimeter and at the rim, so we brainstormed and prototyped a variety of various shooting mechanisms for this season's game. What we settled on was a notion conceptually much like something we attempted in NBA 2K17... Shot Stick Aiming. Aiming did not really work that well in NBA 2K17 because it was somewhat buried, did not have much skill built to it, and didn't give the user any feedback. We chose those learnings and used them to make a much better alternative this time around.

To get NBA 2K21, if you shoot with the Guru Stick, the shooter meter varies from a time consuming bar to a grid. So rather than attempting to stop the shot meter when you get to the ideal release window, then you fix the Guru Stick in real time to reach the ideal centre aim point. The target window resizes dynamically based on player ability, shooting range, and how well the shooter is contested and can also shift into the left or right depending on the shot's level of difficulty. Should you miss the goal too far to the right or left, your shot will miss in that way. And as I mentioned previously with the newest slider sets, even the smallest degree might be the distinction between a create and an airball on Hall of Fame, while it's quite a bit more forgiving on the easier difficulties.

You also will not be penalized with the whole shooting movement to get the sweet spot. To put it differently, you don't have to time your launch when you are shooting with the Guru Stick. But if you would like to take it to the next level and know your release, you can lock in your timing and aim by either centering the Pro Stick or simply by tapping one of the triggers when you reach the apex of this shooter. The lock will be signaled by a brief flash onto the shot meter. If you can time and aim well, you'll give yourself the best chances at making the injection.

The aiming concept also applies to finishing layups, replicating the notion of getting"good touch" around the rim. As you are driving you can hold the Pro Stick in any direction to begin a layup, but this year, you'll want to quickly swing the stick to move the aiming tick into the middle of the target. Aiming layups nicely can help conquer shot contests and help you complete through contact. Personally, it has been difficult for me to go back to the Shot Button after becoming used to Guru Stick shooting.

And because shooting with the rod delivers a little more sophistication than just holding and releasing a button, it also carries a greater risk/reward. If you can master shooting with the Pro Stick, then you will have a higher ceiling for accessing greens and making tough shots, so I am pretty sure it's going to be the injection method of choice for most competitive 2K players. But since I know some will ask... yes, there's an choice to Cheap NBA 2K21 MT Coins disable Shot Aiming if you really wish to go back to the past year's controls.
