This gives me major pause and instant concern. Does this mean that no shot will A) go in using the stick unless it is properly centered, B) that the difference between a shot being drained and completely missing the basket (which is a fairly rare NBA occurrence in the first place) is a literal centimeter, or C) that this mechanic will be out-and-out broken and make it too easy to guarantee a make (which also is not "true to life." At any rate, this change in particular is very concerning.
After reading again and seeing what Mike Wang posted on Twitter I guess I am not too concerned.

1. Using the pro stick gives the biggest "bonus" from Wang's twitter.
2. Also directly from his twitter "When you shoot with the pro stick, the meter only shows the ideal aiming point which you use the stick to target. You don’t see timing so you have to know your release as if the shot meter was off. So he sort of answered my question.
3. The downside is for people that want to turn HUDS off you will not be able to do it if you want to take advantage of the bonus


It is added difficulty that can be turned off but if you master it you have an advantage over users that don't use it. This is about as close you can get with stick skills

That does sound better, if way overly complicated lol

I think everyone outside of the youtube next demigod build community thought badges were already way out of control, so to combat that you, wait for it, made more badges more powerful lmao.

Aint nobody going to use some convoluted shot stick when pressing a button for a specific amount of time is resulting in good players making over 80 percent of their shots, unless you think they can now make 90. Better be decreasing those make percentages way down.

Dribbling sounds cool, the current system is getting really old and the most op moves are rarely realistic. I hope the change not only gives up more creativity but also a system that results in moves used by the best irl ball handlers being the most effective in the game as well.

I am glad they are finally addressing cheese moves in the paint and hopefully will stop handicapping the defense but at the same time they need to drastically decrease the effect of that dang intimidator badge on lightly and partially contested layups.

I think it just means you can turn stick shooting off and shoot with square and use the stick for dribbling moves, which is honestly how I've always preferred to play.
