Default Why does Kevin Martin shoot like a retard in NBA 2k8?

I was so angry when I picked the Kings and I saw him shoot like that, it's not even how he shoots in the real game, not even close...

The only two players who shoot like that in the game that I've discovered so far is Kevin Martin and Shaquille O'Neal.

Shawn Marion's shot looks accurate in the game.

Josh Childress' shot is accurate too - but Kevin Martin doesn't shoot like that... also, I tried to put Chuck Hayes on the line because I thought it'd mimic his FT actions too - but it didn't, and my brother ended up beating me because of it...

Never understood people who say Kevin's shot looks unorthodox..

His shot looks technically fine to me.

I have Martin on my team, and I always mistime his shots because his shooting action is so much more different then everyone elses.

We should have a list of the changes for player signatures for 2k8. Does anyone know who's jumpshot looks pretty close to K-Mart's?

Also, Ilgauskas should not have that "grounded" post moves. His fadeaways to the baseline look awfully silly.
