NBA 2K17 Custom Jump Shot Creator Guide

NBA 2K17 Jump Shot Creator is a feature that allows you to combine different shots and create your own. Before you can use it, you have to get a message from Coach K. In this guide, we’ll give you a detailed explanation how to unlock Custom Jump Shot Creator, how to equip Custom Jumpshots, and how to use them in the Park.

How to unlock custom Jump Shots Creator

The only way to unlock this feature is by receiving a text message from Coach K. The first step is to go to MyCareer mode and finish several matches in the first season. After that, check your text messages from Coach K. Look for a message from your coach, in which he asks you to meet up. You have to accept his invitation if you want to unlock Custom Jump Shot creator. When you return, your manager will contact you and tell you – It looks like you got something from Coach K. It’s a Jump Shot Creator. You can find it under Options in the Nav.

Note: According to many discussions on reddit and youtube channels, getting Coach K’s message seems to be random.

How to create & equip Custom JumpShots

In Custom Jumpshot creator, you can decide how you jump and release the ball. You start this process by choosing a player for Lower /Base. Choose another one for Upper Release 1. Under Upper Release 2 tab, you can select a new player, or the same one as for Upper Release 1. The last tab lets you control Release Speed and Animation Blending. Once you create and save a custom jump shot, you can equip it just like regular shots. From My player inventory, choose NBA / Pro-Am Animations, go to NBA shots, and choose it from the jump shots.

How to use Custom Jumpshot in Park

If you go to the Park and try to switch the jump shot, you’ll not be able to choose your custom jumpshot. You have to set up the shot in your MyCourt, and take it with you to the Park.

    It was that I missed my event COACH K for Jumpshot Creator and keep playing and I’m coming for the month of January and I do not get another message.

    It is to know if I have to keep playing and see if I get the message again from Coach K or if I have to wait for another season of December to be unlocked.

      My husband is having the same issue. It has been hard to find anything about this anywhere. He’s gotten the text from Coach K at least 3 times, and his schedule will be open but it doesn’t show up, or he has something scheduled and it won’t let him go.

    Can anybody tell me the difference between upper release 1 and upper release 2? I am trying to create a custom jumpshot using two different players release for one and two. To me, it looks like upper release 1 is a layup or a floater or some type of moving shot. However, release 2 looks like it is a set jumpshot. I guess my real question is how should I do the animation blending for two different releases if I’m using two different players for the releases? Before you reply to this comment I want you to know that I am trying to equip Michael Jordan’s jumpshot release for upper release 1 if that is controlling moving shots, floaters, layups, Etc…. If upper release 2 is controlling a fundamental set jumpshot then I am ultimately trying to equip Kevin Durant’s jumpshot release. If someone could please clarify how I need to blend these animations to control the specific release that I am trying to control I would really appreciate it.
