How to make a flashy pass in NBA 2K23

Basketball is about planning strategy, considering the gameplay, and making split-second decisions that could make or break the game. But remember to be quick so the opponent doesn’t counter whatever you are thinking.

Passing is one of the most crucial and risky skills in basketball. If you don’t time it right, you risk losing control of the ball. So, you must be very careful when passing the ball to your teammate.

What helps during a pass is to trick the enemy into thinking about one thing but doing the opposite to throw off the whole balance of the opponents. Flashy passes are something that helps a lot in this regard.
