How do you stop the stepback move? That crap feels unstoppable as a man defender and

Crossover, STEPBACK, drive forward, stop, STEPBACK, STEPBACK, drive forward, STEPBACK, STEPBACK, drive forward for a layup.

Im on skates as a a defender and the ballhander speed boost out that crap and constantly drives by me. I mean how many times do i have to defend that stepback, knowing i dont have the consistent tools as a defender to stop that everytime the ballhandler resets after a fail drive attempt by the same ballhandler in the same possesion? The problem is when the game first came out the ballhandler was forced to pick up the ball if he just kept running into you, but they took that tool away from the defense. 2k22 was about giving us equal tool as the offense. What happened to that promise. Give us a "cut off move" like in 2k12

And for anyone that doesn't know what he's talking about.

I experienced it on probably the worst way tonight.

Curry, He just kept doing it over and over.

so is He scoring with a layup all the time? why dont you just keep your distance then while He is doing the stepback? dare him to Shoot as this is obviously Not the Option He likes to take. See of He is capable of doing that.

Ahhhh that doesn't work. It depends on the player your defending. As the other day I was playing Curry. I'll see if I can find any clips from the game. But basically the user I played. .

He would hesi-step back. And if the defender doesn't step up. He's shooting a 3. When you do step up (as defender), he'll crossover (left stick). Even if you off ball and let the CPU play him it's kind of the same results.

I think the problem I have with the whole thing is Curry doesn't play like that in real life. That much dribbling is totally uncalled for.

For me, I donít bit or close in on every move people make and most of the time they will run right into you. Play a side and send them to the help.

Re: How do you stop the stepback move? That crap feels unstoppable as a man defender

I love the explosions and dribbling this year as well as the stepbacks. Best they have ever been IMO. Responsive dribbling. I hope this stays as is for this and future games.

But I think the defense needs the same explosion boost as well to counter.

Offline you can help mitigate through sliders. Online it has to feel like on skates at times because defensively you donít get the same boost or explosion that the offense does.

Every player who has to defend James Harden wants to know this too.

I've going to try this out next time I face someone like this . In my game the user was cold in the first half. But in the second half took off and there was nothing I could do but Double team. That's kind of how I won the game. Double off Draymond Green. Let him do whatever he wanted.

Exactly!! I would hope some of these defensive badges would do that. But it's pretty obvious offense is first

Not like this lol. Even Luka has a step back. But the way Curry does it. It's flat out not real with the combo of his deep 3's. In my game he had 36 points. Defensively I gave up with on-ball defense after the first quarter. Let me see if I can upload the game.
