IsoMotion in "NBA 2K11" gives you complete control over your basketball.

The PlayStation 3 and XBox 360 versions of 2k Sports's "NBA 2K11" offers an in-depth level of control called IsoMotion. With IsoMotion, you control how you dribble the ball as you move down the court. You also control how you shoot the ball. IsoMotion allows you to integrate strategic maneuvers into your play as you avoid defenders who want to steal the ball and block your shots.

  1. Crossover

    • To perform a crossover and shift the ball from one hand to the other, hold "L2" on the PS3 controller or the Left Trigger on the XBox 360 controller, then move the left analog stick in the direction of the hand to which you want to shift the ball.

    Behind the Back

    • To shift the ball from one hand to the other behind your back, rotate the left analog stick in a downward semicircle in the direction you want to move the ball. For example, if you want to shift the ball from your right hand to your left, move the stick to the right, then rotate it down and to the left.

    In and Out

    • To fake-shift the ball from one hand to the other, hold "L2" on the PS3 or Left Trigger on the XBox 360, then move the left analog stick toward the hand without the ball. Move the stick in the opposite direction. This gives the appearance to the defender that you are about to change hands when in fact you are not.

    Step Back and Jab Step

    • To pull the ball back in the direction opposite to which you are running, hold "L2" on the PS3 or Left Trigger on the XBox 360, then flick the left analog stick back. To perform a jab step, hold "L2" on the PS3 or Left Trigger on the XBox 360, then move the left analog stick in the direction of the hand that currently has the ball.

    Spin and Signature Gather

    • To make your player perform a spin, hold "L2" or the Left Trigger, then rotate the left analog stick from left to right or right to left in a downward circular motion. To perform your player's signature gather, come to a standing dribble, then press the Triangle button on the PS3 or "Y" on the Xbox 360.

    Spin Layups and Dunks

    • To perform a spin layup, hold "L2" or the Left Trigger, then move the right analog stick down. To perform a spin dunk, hold "R2" on the PS3 or the Right Trigger on the XBox 360. Move the right analog stick down.
