Basketball fans always seek the best ways to dominate on the virtual court. For those looking to become a dunking machine in the newest instalment of the NBA 2K series, NBA 2K23, some key elements will help you become the dunking king of the court.
Stats, Badges, and Controls for Dunks

The right stats and badges will help you get the most out of your dunks. The driving dunk rating is key in getting the best dunks possible without getting blocked. You’ll need a driving dunk rating of at least 84 for pro contact dunks, 92 for elite contact dunks, and 80 for small contact dunks.
How to Get More Contact Dunks?
When it comes to badges, the most important badge to have is a posterize. Posterizer allows you to get more contact dunks and will help you when other players are in the paint. It’s best to have a posterize at a silver level with a driving dunk rating of at least 85 or a gold level with a driving dunk rating of at least 93.
Unlock Limitless Takeoff with the Bronze or Silver Level

To get limitless takeoff at a bronze level, you’ll need a driving dunk rating of at least 80 or a silver level with a driving dunk rating of at least 85.
Get the Best Dunks From Packages

The reverse of one package is also good, especially off the baseline. For this package, you’ll need a driving dunk rating of at least 80 and a vertical of at least 60.
Using the Right Stick and Turbo Button
Finally, the best way to dunk in the game is to use the right stick to control your dunks. The most common way to dunk is to use the strong hand dunk. If you’re right-handed, you’ll move (Signature Moves) the right stick to the right while holding the turbo button. If you’re left-handed, you’ll do the opposite. This will give you the most random dunks, and you won’t get the meter.
Maximum Dunk Control
You can use the up-down motion on the right stick for more control of your dunk. This will give you the normal skill dunk with the meter. It can be tricky to time, but it will give you the best control of your dunk.
When and How to Get the Favorable Animation?
Finally, it’s important to understand when to go for contact dunks. You can go up if the defender is within the restricted circle. You’ll get the favourable animation if the defender is outside the restricted area. Also, you should go up if the defender is on your hip. This will almost guarantee you a contact dunk.
Once you understand the stats, badges, controls, and when to go for contact dunks, you’ll be dunking on everyone on the court and be the king of the court.
