NBA 2K21 Scoring Machine build
Get the most out of your Scoring Machine build in NBA 2K21 with our jump shot and animations guide.

In this guide, we give you the best jump shot, dunk, dribble and other animations to equip to take your Scoring Machine build to a completely new level in NBA 2K21.

Last month, we made a guide on how to make one of the most complete shooting guard builds in NBA 2K21 - a Scoring Machine. After maxing our player out, we have experimented with a number of different animations to find those that best complement Scoring Machine's attributes and play style.

So, today we will be taking an in-depth look that will show you all you need to know and give you the ultimate setup for this wonderfully versatile build.

Now the first, and probably most important thing as well, is your player's jump shot. We have found that using Kobe Bryant's default jump shot animation works extremely well with this build, especially when paired with the following shooting badges:

  • Catch & Shoot (Gold)
  • Deadeye (Gold)
  • Flexible Release (Gold)
  • Green Machine (Bronze)
  • Hot Zone Hunter (Gold)
  • Range Extender (Gold)
  • Volume Shooter (Bronze)
