Additional Tips: When attempting the alley-oop pass in NBA 2K23, the direction of your LS will be where your lob is thrown. If it’s by any means off the mark, the alley-oop could be botched and you could turnover the ball as result.

Furthermore, the proximity between you and the player you’re throwing the ball to will play a factor in whether you will be able to execute the alley-oop. The further away you’re from the player you’re trying to pass to, the more challenging it will be to successfully pull it off.

When putting these moves to the test, we recommend you do so with the best rated players in the game so you can get a good feel for what to expect when using them.
