NBA 2K22: Best shooters, fastest, strongest and most promising players in the game


NBA 2K22 is here and better than ever.

talkSPORT was able to get started on the latest 2K title and the series remains a mainstream hit for its deep career mode and excellent gameplay mechanics.

NBA 2K22 has revamped its shot

Speaking of which, 2K has adjusted the shot again. Last year there were reviews that 2K21 made it too difficult for newcomers and beginners to shoot.

This year The Shot Meter has been resized, getting bigger when taking high quality photos with good shooters, but shrinking when taking heavily contested photos, shooting with poorly rated shooters, or if your player is tired.

But who are the best shooters in the game? The NBA is perhaps more of a three-point league than ever in the past 10 years. Below are the best three-point shooters in NBA 2K22 out of 99.

Steph Curry is precisely the right choice for the number one niche and 99 is not overdone at all.

The Golden State man is over 43 percent of three-point lands throughout his career.

Along with James Harden, Curry is one of only two players to score at least 300 3-pointers in a single season – a feat he has accomplished four times.

Many believe Steph Curry is the best shooter in NBA history

He now owns four of the top five three-point marks in a single season in NBA history, including the 402 mark he set during his unanimous MVP campaign.

If you’re looking to add coins to your team in GM mode, names like Duncan Robinson, Joe Harris, and Seth Curry – Steph’s younger brother – represent affordable and perhaps surprising options as three-point specialists.

Elsewhere, if you want the fastest players in the game to make sure you can pick up the pace and outrun the bigger teams, or if you want to destroy people on a quick break, here are the players you need to make it happen.

For stronger players, more often than not you are looking at big bad forwards.

When centers are typically located in and around the seven foot region, you can expect them to be the lifeblood of the NBA. But, there are also sports monsters that are rightfully included.

When you want to access MyGM mode or participate in a league campaign, trading is vital.
