For example, according to NBA.com, over the last 10 years there have only been three (how fitting) occasions where the NBA champion has shot a lower percentage from “downtown” than their opponents.
However, in all three cases the difference was less than two percentage points.
Those statistics alone should tell you a couple of things that are important for you, as a gamer, to know.
Using this weapon in NBA 2K8 can be a gamble but it can also become the proverbial “nail in the coffin” that puts your opponent away for good.
Let’s take a look at some history behind the three-pointer and how to use it effectively in NBA 2K8.
If you’ve ever played basketball or if you’re any type of basketball junkie at all, you know how effective the three-point shot can be.
A team that shoots the three well typically puts more points on the board than a team that does not shoot it well.
Yes, the last 10 champions shot the ball fairly well from beyond the arc, but the fact that they held their opponents to a lower shooting percentage from three-point land means those teams defended the shot well.
When playing against the computer, an online opponent or your next-door neighbor always remember to defend that line.Teams with shooters like Jason Kapono, Dirk Nowitzki, Ray Allen and Kyle Korver all become dangerous because of their ability to shoot the three well.Developers are often criticized for seemingly doing as little as possible from one year to the next with their sports games. It’s superior to last year’s game in almost every way; there’s loads of new content and the gameplay is better than ever.Issues, such as missed shots close to the basket and atrocious documentation, hurt the overall package.But this is still a game that’s sure to please both casual and hardcore hoops fans.Since the NBA’s adoption of the three-point line during the 1979-80 season, the trifecta has become a dangerous weapon when used properly and in moderation.
