If you’re wondering what the best dribble moves in NBA 2K23 are, you’ve come to the right place. We are going to show you what we believe to be the absolute best moves in each of the dribble categories. We’ll try and keep it so that we list moves that most builds can use, plus a few more with more specific requirements. There’s a lot to get through, of course, so let’s dive straight in.
NBA 2K23 Best Dribble Moves
The best dribble moves in NBA 2K23 are going to vary from player to player. After all, it all depends on your overall build. So, don’t take all the moves we’ve listed below as gospel; feel free to experiment and see what works best for you. That said, we will try to keep it so that the dribbles we recommend work for almost any build. Feel free to share your preferences in the comments.
We are going to begin with the Dribble Style. Overall, it seems that the one to go with is definitely Micheal Jordan. It should fit your player well no matter your build, and it only requires 75 Speed with Ball to use (and be under 6’10”). Damian Lillard is also apparently really good, but it has stricter requirements.
Now for the moving Crossover. The Pro dribble move here is pretty good, and only requires Ball Handle 75+. Other good ones include LeBron James and James Harden, if you have the stats to use them. In fact, LeBron might be the way to go.
Our next best NBA 2K23 dribble moves category is Moving Behind the Back. The Zach LaVine move reigns supreme, if you have Ball Handle 75+ and are under 6’10”. For those that have seriously high Ball Handle, consider Steph Curry instead.
As for the Moving Spin, there’s not much to say, really. The ordinary, basic, meat-and-potatoes Normal move will do perfectly fine no matter your build. At time of writing, it’s also a little glitchy, which is nice.
On to Moving Hesitations. The Pro move here works just fine, but Luka Doncic (ball handle over 75) is even better. It seems like it’s glitchy, which you can very much use to your advantage.
The Moving Stepback is also not much to right home about when it comes to the best NBA 2K23 dribble moves. Normal should be more than enough. If you wanna go extra and have Ball Handle 80+, then you might want to go with Luka Doncic.
There are a number of Signature Size-Ups that work well. One of them is Tracy McGrady, which requires Ball Handle over 85 and you be under 6’10”. Another good one is Zach LaVine with Ball Handle over 75 and the same height requirement. Also consider Jalen Suggs and Steve Francis (the latter is only if you’re under 6’5″ and have ball handle 85+).
When it comes to Size-Up Escape Packages, go with either John Wall or Luka Doncic. The first requires Ball Handle over 80 and a height of under 6’10”, while the second needs Ball Handle over 70. If you can get it, consider Damian Lillard, too, because it’s really good. Also, the LeBron one has very low requirements, but works really well.
Now for a quick rundown of the rest of the moves. The normal Triple Threat style is perfectly fine. Same goes for the Dribble Pull-Up (if you’re under 6’5″, maybe go with Steph Curry). Normal is also fine with the Hop Jumper. As for the Spin Jumper, Pro is the way to go.
