There are only a few things that feel better than dunking in NBA 2K24. Blowing past opponents and finishing at the rim with strength and poise feels spectacular. It also sends a message to your opponents and forces them to make adjustments to their gameplan.

Dunking with your MyCAREER character feels even better. However, to pull off a dunk players need to fulfil its specific animation requirements. These requirements include minimal height, vertical jump, and dunking attributes, among others.

Without further ado, let's take a look at all the dunk animation requirements in NBA 2K24.

NBA 2K24 Dunk animations

As mentioned above, you need to fulfil different animation requirements to perform different dunks. If you have a 6' 2" point guard, there are certain dunks you won't be able to perform.

The same goes for 7’3" centers, which won't be able to perform some dunks because their driving dunk attribute is too low. However, putback and standing dunks are easier to perform for them.

Despite Stephen Curry being a great player, there are plenty of dunks he can't perform in NBA 2K24.

So it's extremely important to know the requirements of each dunk animation. This way you will know which dunks your MyCAREER player can or can't perform, and the best situations to perform a specific dunk.

It will also help you deduce what dunks your opponents can perform, making it easier to defend that aspect of their game. In cases where your opponent doesn't have a reliable 3-point shot or mid-range, it can help you lock him down.

So let's take a look at the NBA 2K24 dunking animation requirements below.
