In NBA 2K22 MyCareer, it remains essential to equip the best animations in order for your MyPlayer to maximize its potential, especially in the finishing department. Especially on Next Gen, where dunking is as, if not the most difficult to do consistently as it has ever been in series history due to the brand-new Dunk Meter, having the right slashing animations is a must this year.

As such, for those looking to avoid getting blocked and finish strong at the rim, here are the best layup packages to equip in NBA 2K22 MyCareer on Current Gen and Next Gen.

Best Dunk Packages in NBA 2K22: Which to Use

As always, which layup animations you use ultimately comes down to preference, however, it's important to choose from some of the more popular options. This is because as seen and widely covered in the previous 2Ks, not all sigs are created equal.

Here are the two best options to use in the layup style category on both Current Gen and Next Gen:

  • Long Athlete
  • John Wall

Depending on what's available to your build, I would try to choose between these two as they the least likely to get blocked.

Additionally with the John Wall package, you can double tap the Square/X button to do a spin move and hold the Right Stick up to finish it with a cheesy dunk, so I would prioritize that one.

For those looking to turn some heads, however, the new Jelly layup package has to be the go-to option.
