I would like to know what are the best defensive strategies to take on nba 2k11. Playing zones, man on man, double team traps, etc; or is it best to switch defenses through the game.

What mode is this for? I've mostly played only single player mode in the 3/4 slot so its the only one I can relate to, and I've mostly had luck with man to man defence while occasionally calling for a double team when they pass the ball inside to their big man.

Occasionally, I rotate in for a block attempt when its obvious the ball handler has their man beat, but more often than not you'll get burned when you leave your guy open if they are a sharpshooter.

I have that happen, I am finding that your starting man to man defense is fine when you are playing an average player. But when you go up against a really good player they usually pick apart your defense and thats when you need to look at other sets of d that you have available. – freddy6 Dec 9 '10 at 4:42
