In terms of stick shooting, in a way, I feel like a dinosaur and miss just pushing a button to shoot. In another way, it does sound cool on paper to control whether I bank a shot or not.

Personally, I've just never been a fan of stick shooting. I love using the stick for freestyle dribbling but to also use it to pull up a shot or dunk just feels convoluted.

Looking more forward to hear about defense really. In particular about if whether or not the defensive A.I. is more reactive in transition or whether or not the help defense is any better.

A lot of stuff to take in here though, I've got to read over the 'passing' section again

"When standing under the basket, you can now choose what side of the rim you want to finish on by holding the Shot Button (or Pro Stick Up) and using the left stick to choose a side. Pro Stick users can still hold left or right to choose a side, but the left stick option makes it easier if youíre struggling to aim layups."
God I've been waiting for this for so long.

Iím hoping these new standing layups are quicker and have a lot more verticality.

So many times I want to go straight up and finish with touch or throw out a baby hook and Iíll get dragged into an awkward layup animation that looks like youíre seeking out contact or that off balance flailing fading hook that looks awful

Harden's facial expressions and head movement look so realistic. If anything, from what I've seen the game just seems so much more alive in next-gen.

Meter, aim and arc to just take a jump shot.

Seems like a lot to do for an OG player like myself......lol
