stealing the ball is really tough in this game. i notice the same thing, try to do it more on big men or bad ball handlers.

I never perform on the ball steals intentionally, I always assume that happens depending on your players on the ball defense skill and defensive awareness. I get most of my steals standing just outside of a passing lane and right as the other team passes the ball I reach in to tip it. usually it results in a tipped pass that becomes a steal but sometimes they just yank the ball out of the air.

When you cut a guy off defensively and stop his dribble, there is a point where you can hold sprint and hit steal and you'll burst under the offensive player and rip the ball.

It works best against big guys when you're a strong perimeter defender. With Rajon Rondo, once I stop a guy by cutting off his dribble and he starts like stutter dribbling, hit the steal button and you'll get a rip. My tops is 8 steals with Rondo but I've also only been playing for a week or so. (new to the game but not the series)
It's a Canes thing, you wouldn't understand.

Have 80ish+ in steals and just go after big men/forwards. I just ripped the ball from Blake Griffin 3-4 times in 1 game.

Only way other than hanging in pass routes. Your not taking the ball from a decent PG or even SG.
