While not every move is one you'll be executing in NBA 2K24, having an idea of how they all work will make you infinitely more capable on the court. Even if you're playing a dominant center build in MyCAREER, having a few moves to sneak into the arsenal will only make you better.

You can pause during games to check the controls and view animations detailing each of the moves here, but we've laid them all out if you want a quick look or to be able to search for that one pesky move you need to nail.
