It’s important to note that the attributes of the MyPlayer build will factor in the animations you want to equip. Height, weight, and wingspan are just some of those attributes, so we advise you to pay attention to the requirements before deciding on your build.

  • Dribble Style – Michael Jordan. Without a question, Michael Jordan’s dribble style is the best in the game. This animation comes with a Height Under 6'10" and Speed with Ball 75+ requirements.
  • Signature Size-Up - Paul George. If you are looking for speed boost moves, Paul George's signature size-up is what you need. It has a Height Under 6'10" and Speed with a Ball 75+ requirements.
  • Size-up Escape Package - Damian Lillard. Dame has very fast speed boost moves and an excellent step-back. Height Under 6'10" and a Ball Handle 90+ are the requirements for this animation.
  • Moving Crossovers - Zach LaVine. LaVine has the fastest-moving crossover in the game, and with the requirements pretty low, it is one of the best animations in NBA 2K24. It only requires a Ball Handle 75+.
  • Moving Behind the Back - Zach LaVine. Again, Lavine's moving behind the back is the best option. The requirements (Height Under 6'10" and Ball Handle 75+) should be relatively easy for you to achieve.
  • Moving Hesitations - Luka Doncic. Thanks to low requirements (Ball Handle 75), any build can equip it.
  • Moving Stepback - Luka Doncic. Doncic’s effective stepback will create a lot of space so that you can score buckets uncontested. The only requirement is a Ball Handle 80+.

Below you will find all passing styles in NBA 2K24, together with their requirements.

  • LaMelo Ball - This is by far the best passing style in NBA 2K24, as it's incredibly fast, hard to intercept and very deceptive. Because of that, most players have this passing style equipped. You can also equip it as long as you have at least 85+ Pass Accuracy.
  • Nikola Jokic - The Nikola Jokic passing style makes it almost impossible for your opponents to steal the ball. This is perfect if you are a player who is more focused on facilitating than scoring. You need to have an 80+ Pass Accuracy to equip it.
  • De'Aaron Fox - Fast as lighting, is the perfect way to describe the De'Aaron Fox passing style. To equip it, you will need to have a 79+ Pass Accuracy.
  • Jason Williams - A very deceptive passing style, that allows you to perform a plethora of unique passes. You need to have a 90+ Pass Accuracy to equip it.
