Alright, hoop heads! We’re ’bout to take a big leap into the mad, mad world of NBA 2K24, with a focus on the kind of dunks that leave folks wide-eyed and slack-jawed in their courtside seats. Yep, we’re breaking down the art, the science, the pure showmanship of flashy dunks.


When we talk flashy dunks, we’re paying homage to the greats. The titans like Vince “Vinsanity” Carter, whose soaring dunks defied gravity, or Michael “His Airness” Jordan, whose creativity and finesse made him an icon. And let’s not forget the original high-flyer, Dr. J himself, Julius Erving. These legends set the bar, and NBA 2K24 gives you the keys to the kingdom to keep that tradition alive.



What’s a Flashy Dunk?

So, what’s a flashy dunk, you ask? Well, my friend, it’s pure poetry in motion; it’s a masterpiece painted mid-air. It’s that show-stopping, jaw-dropping move that leaves everyone buzzing. The kind of dunk that gets you on the nightly highlight reel and sends your opponent’s morale into the basement.


These ain’t just your regular throw-it-downs. We’re talking 360s, windmills, tomahawks, and everything in between. And who’s the Picasso of this high-flying art form? None other than the “His Airness” himself, Michael Jordan. But in recent times, players like LeBron “King” James, Vince “Vinsanity” Carter, and Zion Williamson have been known to throw down dunks that send shockwaves through the stadium.



Stamina and Ratings

Before we dive into the nitty-gritty, let’s talk basics. The flashy dunk ain’t for the faint of heart—or those running on fumes. You gotta have enough stamina to pull this off, or else you’ll end up throwing up a lame duck instead of soaring like an eagle.


Also, don’t forget about player ratings. You need hops to fly. In other words, your dunk rating needs to be high enough to pull off these highlight plays.



Mastering the One-Handed Flashy Dunk

Now let’s get down to business. First up, the one-handed flashy dunk—a favorite of high-flyers like MJ and LeBron. Here’s how you do it:


Start by sprinting towards the rim. You gotta hit R2/RT like it owes you money. When you’re in the paint, about to take off, flick that right stick down and quickly whip it back up. If done correctly, your player will throw down a one-handed jam that’ll have the virtual crowd on their feet and the opposition calling for their mommas.



The Two-Handed Power Dunk

Next, we got the two-handed flashy dunk. This one’s all about power and authority—it’s the kind of move that big guys like Shaq and Dwight Howard loved to pull off.


Just like the one-handed dunk, you’re gonna sprint towards the hoop with R2/RT. This time, though, give that right stick two quick flicks upwards. Nail it, and you’ll throw down a two-handed slam that’ll leave no doubt about who’s running the show.



Rim Hanging: The Icing on the Cake

In NBA 2K24, you can really rub it in by hanging on the rim after a dunk. As you’re going up for that big slam, keep holding down R2/RT and the right stick. The longer you hold, the longer you hang, and the louder the crowd gets.
