Official NBA 2K12 Advanced Controls list

In practice mode, remember when you could press Select and view the moves list on the bottom of the screen? 2K decided to replace that with Hot Zones. Now, it is a pain in the rear to go back and forth from the pause menu to the game. I know there is a pictorial control list already on here, but I decided to make them a lot more legible without having to load pictures and go through all the hassle. I am pretty much finished, but let me start with what I have and I will organize it with edits. Lets make this easy.

Re: Official NBA 2K12 Advanced Controls list

Not sticky worthy considering you have this that was posted over a week ago:

http://www.2ksports.com/manual/nba2k12/

People can download the massive PDF file and save it to their PC or print it out. It has all the advanced controls and everything else.

Yes, but in a thread like this you can add moves that are not in the manual.

I found the training camp mode to be very helpful for learning these moves. Even though I've got a 100% completion, I go back through certain areas once in a while to brush up on things.
