Three-point shooting has become as fundamental as dribbling and passing almost in today’s NBA, with big men even taking it upon themselves to develop a long-range shot to keep up with the direction the league is heading in. To put it simply, if you can’t shoot from beyond 23 feet, you’re putting your team at a disadvantage on offense.
This is doubly true in the world of 2K, with three-pointers being perhaps the most valuable and common shots in the game, just ask anyone online. Having a player on your team who is a threat from deep helps you immensely in 2K games, either to extend leads or catch back up.
That’s why, if you’re playing MyTeam for example, you should never go for the 10 players listed below. Excluding centers and power forwards — as they were only expected to have a decent three-point shot starting a couple of years ago — these 10 players have the worst open three-point ratings in the game. Never rely on these guys to hit anything beyond the line, believe me.
