NBA 2K20 is getting seriously review bombed, but that's not stopping the franchise loyal fans from showing and throwing down in the annual sports title. The new game is out now and players are already busy powering through MyCareer Mode (after changing the NBA 2K20 default nickname) and sharpening their skills for online play.
There are a ton of new features and skills to master if players want to be the best NBA 2K20 gamer in their group of friends, but it's important to get a hold of the game's basics before taking it pro. To start off, players will want to get comfortable calling out screens, so that they can drive to the basket a whole lot easier when playing offense.
Calling for a screen is actually pretty simple in NBA 2K20, but it's important not to take the feature for granted. Knowing when and how to properly call for (and direct) a screen is the fastest path a high score and players will want to practice with the feature solo before heading into competitive environments.
To start off players need to hold down either L1 on the PS4, LB on Xbox One, or L on Switch. This action calls of the screen and a nearby teammate will rush just in front of the player's character and start the coverage.
Make sure to continue holding the button down as long as you need the screen to be in place. At this point, there are a few options for what to do next. To switch between either a roll or a fade move, just press R1/RB/R (depending on console).
Alternatively, and more frequently, players will want to adjust the angle of the screen to figure out which area of floor to open up. To do that, press in the left thumbstick and the angle of the screen will change. This will open up different lanes and give you the change to find the best path to the basket.
