NBA 2K22 is here, and players both new and old step in the court to ball out. There are many different ways to score baskets, whether it’s with a three-point shot or a sneaky layup. Here’s how to perform one of 2K’s biggest layups: the Jelly Layup.

A Jelly is defined by a leg kick resulting in a jump where people think the player is going to dunk the ball, but actually ends up rolling the ball into the hoop with their finger while they do a little spin. This type of layup isn’t as reliable as others, but it is one of the coolest and funniest shots that’ll have any player chuckling with their friends.

To perform the Jelly Layup, players will want to go straight towards the hoop and jump like they’re dunking the ball. However, once in the air, quickly spin the right circle and the character will roll the ball in the hoop and flop for a bit. This flop is what determines the shot being a Jelly Layup.

Jelly Layups could result in some funny occurrences, like seeing an avatar flop to the floor, only to get back up and celebrate with the other characters before getting back up into the action. It’s made an impact in the 2K community and isn’t that hard to pull off. While there are better layups to pull off, this fruity extract of a layup will always have a place in fans’ hearts.

NBA 2K22 is now available on Xbox and PlayStation consoles.
