Here's a great video from Sam Phan talking about stopping the ISO dribble in NBA 2K17. As many of you are finding out, it's kind of difficult to stop the ISO dribble in this year's game -- but NBA 2K17 gives you a few tools to help you out.
- First, in the settings apply the "Help (All)" setting to allow for the computer to automatically provide help defense. As in basketball, that means a player in the post will slide over to defend a driving player who beats a perimeter defender and it gives you a very slight speed edge to give you the ability to possibly block your opponents shot.
- Sam mentions in the video (and its totally true) that ultimately you are going to need to be good on the sticks to defend against driving players. Holding down your LT to stay in a defensive stance is a good idea -- and positioning your player to always stay between the ball and the basket is yet another good idea. Ultimately, if you do this you will always find your defender in a good position. Reacting to every little move a ballhandler makes will mean you get beat more often than not because you'll ultimately end up out of position.
