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

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

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

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.

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.

For those on both Current Gen and Next Gen, the Dwyane Wade, Dante Exum and Base 98 options all remain part of the meta this year. However, we would strongly recommend the following jump shot:

  • Base: Ray Allen
  • Release 1: Rudy Gay
  • Release 2: Rudy Gay
  • Release Speed: 3/4ths (Current Gen) or Full (Next Gen)

One of the fastest and most consistent Bases in the game is Ray Allen, which is fitting considering how much of a sniper he was in real life.

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

Lastly, for those on Current Gen, the second-to-last Release Speed has been the sweet spot, while those on Next Gen can feel free to crank up the speed to max.
