This leads to me getting not just doubled, but sometimes tripled so I can't make any pass what so ever and I sure as hell can't shoot or score.
This problem doesn't exist when I am at the top of the key and the screener is on the left side though which is weird.
I run pick and rolls with the basic L1 or LB or whatever, I don't use the playbook to run pick and rolls. I usually just call player isolation and then ask for a pick from the PF or C but then this problem always escalates.
Anyone else have this problem? how do I fix it? I want all of my teammates to really just stand in the corner and just shoot 3s. Do I have to start using picks from the playbooks?
call for your scree anyway you like and before you used it (this takes some timing and a little bit of practice) tap L1/LB and use the manual cut with the RS/right analog and send the wing player towards the top of the key or spaced out on the wing.
i never use plays and i love the pick and roll in 2k13 because you actually have to read defences, but if you read it right you will score or break the defence down. this started happening to me and i was like "i wish i could make that corner guy lift to the top of the key or drift to the corner when i drive". again, if you learn the timing this is devastating, espcially against those losers who dont play man-to man and only play off the ball, i get them on so many backdoors when they try to trap the ballhandler
