Hi, everyone. This post will be a list of offensive skills that you will need to raise in order to have an effective 3 point specialist shooting guard. I will give you the skills and give a brief explanation of why I picked those. All these tips were based on my experience as I was trying to develop my SG into one of the best shooters in the NBA in his rookie season. Are you ready? Here we go:
I would raise this attribute because you want your guard to be a good shooter wherever he may be at. You don't want him to just be a good 3 point shooter, do you? This would help a lot for any kind of guard or forward in fact. If you don't get your 3's going, you can rely on this. I'd get this up to at least 80, so that you can work on the other skills I will be mentioning.
Of course this would be one you will want to raise up high because you want to be a 3 point specialist, right? I'd also raise this to at least 80, but you will also want to raise your other skills as well. This will be very expensive, so raise this up after you have a good game, when you get lots of skill points to spend. This will probably happen if you are able to pull off a great game during a key game.
Ball Security (Dribbling):
You will need to get this up because if you want to get around the court, you will need to become a decent dribbler. Don't spend TOO much on this though, because there are a lot of other skills you would want to raise that would directly impact your shooter. Get this high enough so that you don't lose the ball. If you notice you keep losing the basketball while doing various dribbling moves, raise this up to a more comfortable level.
Now this is an attribute that you will NEED as a shooter. This will determine how fast you can get out of a shooting slump, and how long you will be in a hot shooting streak. I am currently at high 70's with this and I know that this will help you get hot quick and keep your streak longer.
Shoot in Traffic:
This attribute should help you out when you have to shoot under pressure, while a defender is guarding you. It will most likely raise the chances of you making your shot while you are around defenders. I would raise this because it should help when you are being guarded closely and frustrate defenders.
One last tip, I would make sure that you choose a shot release for your jump shot and free throws that you will be good at so that you can easily make your shots. Make sure to experiment in shootaround and scrimmages so that you can practice and find out what shots you like best. Hope this helped you out somehow, and if you liked it, please don't be afraid to share it with other people who may need help too!
