When talking about NBA 2K17, gamers sometimes speak of “ISO”. But what is ISO? ISO is a short form for Isolation. Isolation Play is often used near the end of the game. With 10 seconds left on the clock and a team needing a basket, many coaches will just give the ball to their best scorer and ask the star to make something happen.
Isolation plays take advantage of a
team's best player. Scorers want to score, and ISO plays give them the
opportunities they want. But these plays can also exploit matchups with weaker
players, if a team doesn't have a good defender at a certain position or lacks
the size and speed to stop a top scorer or the key defender is in trouble with
injury or foul, when you have players as talented as Michael Jordan or Kobe
Bryant on your roster, you're going to score points off of isolation plays.
However, there's a significant downside
to isolation ball. Teams that become too reliant on a single player can become
stagnant on offense, one-dimensional, and too vulnerable if they are facing a
defender like Memphis forward Tony Allen. It requires the ball handler to shoot
quickly and perfectly to make ISO really efficient. Click for more: https://www.mmogah.com/news/nba-2k17/what-is-iso-in-nba-2k17
