How to determine the best dunk?

Here is when we would use each NBA 2K23 pro stick dunking animation:

Types How to Use
Two-Hand Any time we have a defender in the paint that is the same height or taller. Perhaps the safest way to dunk in NBA 2K23.
Strong Hand Same as the two-handed dunk or when driving baseline to keep the ball away from the opposition.
Weak Hand Opposite-side drives where the defender is pushing you to your less dominant hand.
Rim Hang During transition when you have a sizable head start on your opponent.
Flashy Two Hand Can be used on smaller opponents in the paint. Keep your eyes open for any chase-down block artists.
Flashy One Hand This is perfect for fast-break offense and if you're controlling a player known for incredible dunks.

How to Rim Hang in NBA 2K23?

In the Courtside Report on the NBA 2K23 pro stick, this is how you'll rim hang this year:

    • Use one of the new rim-hang dunk gestures mentioned above when driving toward the hoop, but keep the Sprint trigger held when the player gets their hands on the rim.
    • Keep the Sprint trigger held to stay on the rim as long as you'd like.
    • Use the left stick to adjust the momentum of your swinging body.
    • Use the right stick to pull yourself up on the rim.
