NBA 2K23 once again revamps the post move controls for the series, as well as introduces several new ones.

As initially unveiled in the weeks leading up to the release of NBA 2K23, gameplay director Mike "Beluba" Wang and the developer team have not only added a "bunch" of new Signature Post Shots and Hooks for both Current and Next Gen, but they also made it so that Dropsteps and Post Hop Shots are controlled by Double Throws, and Shimmy Fades and Hooks are controlled by Switchbacks

For those looking to expand their bags on the block, here's a breakdown of all of the post move controls in NBA 2K23 on Current and Next Gen.
