Solid Shooter

Written by HoopAndLife

So I was looking for some locker codes I could use and I came upon this diamond Vernon Maxwell. I decided to enter the locker code and luck was in my favor. ( I will give the locker code soon. ) And I'm going to tell you right now, don't pass up on this opportunity. I was also playing with the new 2k patch.

Bought for: Got this card from the locker code the code is: MADMX-4HWTA-U2RR3-RBAFV-GGMF7

Strengths:

  • Mid Range: This mid range shooter can connect off of catch and shoots, fast breaks, and isos. His release is slow ( we will talk about that in the weaknesses sections. ) He can score off of the mid-ranges on pick and rolls. It was hard in this new patch because some of the mid-ranges shots weren't going in even though they were lightly contested. He can hit wide open shots though which sort of makes up for it. A advice I would give you is that if you play slower, you won't take as much contested shots and when you play faster, you'll take more contested shots causing you to miss.
  • Inside Scoring: Maxwell can score off of some contested layups and wide open layups. The patch again is annoying because when someone's there, they think that the shot is contested causing the shot not to fall. He can sort of throw down a few slams but because of the patch, misses some of them.
  • Defense: Since this patch, this is a pro because that also affected/impacted my opponent on the shots he was taking. All it took was Vernon to have the hand in the player's face to cause my team to get the rebound. But knowing his lack of rebounding, my center had to grab the rebounds. Vernon even got a few steals off of passes and that led to wide open layups.

Weaknesses:

  • Slow Release: This card has a slow release, causing him to miss mid-ranges and three pointers. He even missed a couple of free throws even though his free throw rating was a 84. That was the only problem I have with this card.

Recommended Strategy: "Make Vernon do some pick and rolls so he could get open. Causing him to get open will be easier to score the ball with a slow release."

Other Comments: (optional) "This card isn't a bad card, you just got to get used to the new 2k Patch."

Use if: "You want a guy that can score off of pick and rolls."

Don't use if: "You want a guy that has a faster release."

Bottom Line: "A solid shooter and diamond."
