Just as in real life, knocking down your free throws is essential to winning games, do so can also go a long way towards earning your shooting badges in NBA 2K22.

For those looking to take care of business at the line, especially for those with little to no attributes on their free throw rating, here are the best free throw animations to equip in NBA 2K22 MyCareer on Current Gen and Next Gen.

Best Free Throw in NBA 2K22: Which to Use

As always, which free throw animation you use ultimately comes down to preference, however, it's wise to choose from some of the more popular options. This is because as seen and widely covered in the previous 2Ks, not all sigs are created equal.

Here are some of the best options to use at the free throw line:

  • Carmelo Anthony
  • Stephen Curry
  • Michael Jordan
  • Trae Young
  • Free Throw 28

Ultimately, while all of these options are very clean and smooth to follow, Stephen Curry and Michael Jordan are what I would suggest players to try on their builds first.

Along with Carmelo Anthony's form as well, these two have long been popular among players in the Rec, Pro-Am and 2K League scenes.

Thankfully, all of the free throw animations are free of charge this year as well.

For those looking to turn some heads, however, the legendary underhanded Rick Barry free throw remains the go-to option.
