Not many jump shots are easy to use in NBA 2K19 MT. Some do not have a smooth enough motion to help you correctly judge the appropriate shot release time. Other people create your player leap longer in the air, which makes you vulnerable for a block. Fortunately, there are a few jump shots that are rather simple to use.
Before proceeding, it is worth understanding that there's no such thing as a best jump shot animation which will guarantee you a perfect shot launch. However, shot animations where the optimal timing occurs in the peak of a jump elevation are usually the easier ones to pull away. Additionally, in comparison to NBA 2K17, landing perfect jump shots in NBA 2k19 can feel more challenging for some due to the game's shorter shooter meter. Basically, NBA 2k19's short shot meter makes it tough to spot the margin of error and the optimal shot release timing. For this reason, it is better to rely upon your shot animation rather than the meter.
First off, Lonzo Ball's jump-shot design is decidedly one of the simplest jump shots to pull off a perfect launch time. There is not much unnecessary flashiness in Lonzo's jump shot animation to confound you from receiving the right timing. Another fantastic jump shot is James Harden's, which has a silky smooth jumping animation.
NBA 2K18 MT also lets you customize your own jump shot after your MyPlayer reaches an overall score of 75. With the jump shot customization unlocked, you can accordingly adjust the shooter release speed timing to your liking. Best of all, you can also blend two leap shot animations to truly create your very own unique signature jumper. Just test the jump shots that appeal to you and attempt to tweak it using the jump shot customization.
