Best Post Fade Animations
Post Fade shots are a fun way to throw the defender off their balance and cash that opportunity to score some points. When you do a post fade animation, your player will back up the defender as soon as you get the chance, you will enter the fade animation.
As soon as the defender is off their balance, the area will be wide open for you to dunk or shoot, depending on your distance from the basket.
In NBA 2K23, it doesn’t matter what height category your build is in, you will be able to make perfect Post Fade Shots with a bit of practice.
For all heights, Pro 3 is by far the best and the most trust-worthy Post Fade shot animation and if your timing is right, there is no chance that any defender will be able to stop the ball in the way.
Using the Pro 3, you will have enough gap between you and the defender, and the ball will be out of range of the defender so there is no need to worry about not being able to score, as long as the ball reaches the basket.
