And the Dual Team setting is broken. Game begins, I set 10 points up plus they double team for the whole 2k21 mt purchase game. Even if we are up by 30 points with 6 seconds left at the end of the match and I am just hoping to hold the ball to conduct the clock to end the game... they double team me still as if I'm trying to score? Realism seems like it's been thrown in the trash. The AI looks like it was developed to make things tougher for its shooting badge grinders who don't care about NBA Career and only use it to improve badges for Rec/Park by throwing up shots all game. Don't punish the people who want to play how and actually enjoy NBA Career nevertheless their personality was constructed. It's like we are not allowed to have fun.
Make the court bigger or decrease stride length. In large due to game design although court spacing has been an issue for years due to playerbase. Turning the corner from the protector almost always sets you in the direct path of a bulge steal or dig till you're baseline/sideline. Additionally, it is far too quick to go sideline to sideline and simple to clog driving lanes.
It always feels as though the game forces you to dribble into or shoot in certain spots of the court, I think that this has been around in past 2k's too. Career would profit although this proposal applies more to MyPark. This should allow individuals to be more successful driving to the basket and provide big guys with greater post up chances. It would vastly make crime and defense more fluid and dynamic. More space to dodge screens, play mid size, post up, drive to the basket,etc.. We wouldn't have to play with game after game with the cheese.
This is way more prominent in MyCareer but happens in Park as well with defenders that are beat without momentum moves along with loose balls/rebounding. I really don't see reason for this exist at all, if the AI is getting destroyed then it is getting ruined. Score points or do not change the mechanics of the game to deny, it is built cheating.
Reduce ball magnetism on loose balls and cubes for offense. In my experience across multiple years of buy nba 2k21 mt including this one, the great majority of balls poked lose or blocked (70%+) return to the offense either to the offender or like magic directly to another teammate like it was a pass. It is unrealistic to always get a steal and that's perfectly fine but the disparity is pretty huge and it ties into the previous proposal of game breaking physics. You move after the ball just to have the offense get it back immediately and you are in defensive position that is bad. Give the body and instead an intermediate solution maybe is to decrease the frequency of balls poked loose.
