Don't you have to time the shot stick too?

lemme rephrase myself
If you use the shots stick you can be off on your timing a bit more, if you can get a good angle. There's a greater margin of error, and if you practice a certain players jumper (and get the timing and angle down) it's pretty much automatic.
You can have the same level of success just pushing the button, but timing will be a bigger factor. If you mistime the shot, the results will be less forgiving.
Ultimately do whatever you feel comfortable doing, but I always feel it's worth practicing/attempting to use the shot stick once. There's a learning curve, but the more control you take over your players actions and the more skilled you get, the better your results will be.
It's also easier to pull up from a dribble/drive and bust a jumper if you use the shot stick...like I said, the more control you take over your player, the more skills you pick up, the better you'll do
I really hope they fix the logic in my player, though I'm not ever sure i'm gonna cop this year
Why is one of the Morris twins playing center or starting over a perfectly healthy Jabari, why has my team traded Monroe for Bazemore
meanwhile Thon and Henson barely touch the court. This game don't make a lick of sense
