  • Doing an explosive behind the back right after a jab step will definitely throw the opponent off-guard. You can even mix it up with a regular behind the back to keep them guessing. Our Explosive Behind the Back guide explains how you can master the move.

 

  • Remember that you can only jab as soon as you catch the ball and before you start dribbling. You cannot double dribble in NBA 2K23 so as soon as someone passes you the ball, or if you intercept it from the opponent, execute a jab step (if needed) before you dribble or before a dribbling/shoot move.

 

  • Use the jab steps to trick your opponent into thinking that you’re coming in. This will force them to go back, giving you an opportunity to take a jump shot.

 

  • You should also master the Pro Stick to shoot more consistently and without having to lift your finger from the right stick. It saves you precious time and lets you be flexible with your shots.
