NBA 2K21 Patch 1.08 wishlist should include three main points. This year's installment of NBA 2K is vastly different than the 2K's in prior years. Some of the changes have been good, like the revamped MyTeam experience; however, there is still a long way to go before 2K returns to its 2K16 glory days. Hopefully, Patch 1.08 will address the main issues within the 2K community.

1. Increase the shot meter size

First and foremost, there is no reason that players should be consistently missing wide-open three-pointers in a game. Unless you can get a perfect green release, or have Steph Curry, it's difficult to make an open three. While not every open shot should be made, if I have at least an 80-85 three-point rating and have a "slightly early" or "slightly late" release, I should make the majority of open shots. A larger shot meter will increase the player's chances of making these open shots with better releases.

2. Fix AI player movement defensively

This may very well be the most important thing 2K should patch in 1.08. There's nothing worse than when you've played a perfect possession of defense, and you look up, and your opponent is getting a free cut to the basket. Far too often does the AI allow opposing players to run right past them for an easy dunk. Patching this would be huge and is something the 2K community has been asking for.

3. Remove the shot meter from layups

While this doesn't happen very often, the one or two times it does happen in a game can be very frustrating. This is the first 2K where there has been a real emphasis on making, or missing, layups. Even a slightly late release can make you miss an open layup. Honestly, there is nobody on an NBA roster that cannot make a layup. NBA 2K, please fix this.

With all this being said, I hope that 2K listens to their fans and make the correct patches. This is a good 2K, but things like missing layups and open threes can ruin the gaming experience. We look forward to seeing what NBA 2K21 Patch 1.08 will consist of.
