In NBA 2K22 MyCareer, it remains crucial to equip the best animations in order for your MyPlayer to maximize its potential, especially in the jump shot department.

For those at the four or five looking to get less full whites and more green beans on the court, here is the best jump shot for bigs to use in NBA 2K22 MyCareer on Current Gen and Next Gen.

NBA 2K22 MyCareer Best Big Man Jump Shot: Current Gen and Next Gen

In order to unlock all of the jump shot animations, including access to all of the bases in the Jump Shot Creator, your MyPlayer must have a Height of 6'9" and under.

For those with a build taller than that, however, have no fear because there are several bases available for bigs that remain as smooth and quick as the likes of Ray Allen, Base 98 and Steph Curry.

Although the Base 38 and Giannis Antetokounmpo options both have also had strong returns early on this year, we would strongly recommend the following jump shot for bigs on both Current Gen and Next Gen:

  • Base: Jump Shot 107
  • Release 1: Rudy Gay
  • Release 2: Rudy Gay
  • Release Speed: Full

When it comes to the right jumper, it ultimately has to do with the Base. While the Release of your jump shot is mainly for cosmetics and a visual guide for those who use no shot meter, the Base is what controls the jump shot's green window.

Jump Shot Base 107 has emerged as surprise favorite for many big man poppers this year, with good reason thanks to its large green window and fluid motion.

With the Release, Rudy Gay remains the most popular choice in the game by far. The form is clean and gives an easy indicator on when to release the ball.

As always, which jump shot you use ultimately comes down to preference, however, its important to choose from some of the more popular options. This is because as seen and widely covered in previous 2Ks, not all jumpers are created equal.
