When im playing 2k online I am having an extremely difficult time guarding guys who can jump over 3 defenders from anywhere in the paint and whose jumpshot you have to respect, that is, Lebron James and J.R Smith. It seems my opponent can just dribble the ball around the perimeter for basically the entire shot clock until he is able to find one breach take one dribble inside the arch and just slam it down on anybody. Now if I try double teaming the player they just simply blow by me while im pressing the LB and waiting for a teammate to help trap the player or the player just finds his open teammate for a wide open 3.

Any help would be appreciated.

Try running a 1-3-1 and user the PG and PF... If hes trying to dribble around like u say that 1-3-1 should jam up the paint / penetration and your double teaming will be quicker. Also what team r u running with? That has alot to do with it also... Some teams just have no D in this game at all no matter what u try.

1) Try bumping them and stop the ball
2) Use 1-3-1 zone to make them shoot Js

cut him off in the paint and just hold left trigger... don't try to jump

it'll put him into that trashy animation that misses 9/10 times (provided you didn't allow lebron/J.R. to get scorching hot)
