The NBA series’ newest addition that is NBA 2K23 was released on September 9th, 2022, for multiple platforms, including Xbox series X/S/One, PS4/5, The Nintendo Switch, and the most-required platform that is Microsoft Windows.

What are the requirements for a pro dribble in NBA 2K23?

In the earlier versions of the NBA basketball games, i.e. the 2k21 and 2k22, you will need to have a minimum ball handle of around 85. Upon reaching 85, you can unlock the Pro Dribble Style. Along with it, you will also get a particular size and escape animation package for the MyPlayers.

The idea remains the same for the NBA 2K23 as well. You will be able to use the Pro Dribble style once you have reached the level 70 Ball handle. You can unlock the Pro Size Ups and Escape Packages once you have a minimum of 75.

But make sure you at least reach 85, as it is the actual minimum requirement to unlock Pro dribble and the other special size-up packages for players like

  1. LaMelo Ball
  2. James Harden
  3. Tracy McGrady

Remember that these players require a minimum of 85 Ball Handle to unlock everything.

Other players will need more Ball Handle ratings over 85 to open the Pro Dribble and the special Animation packages. These players include Kobe Bryant, Kyrie Irving and Trae Young. The requirements for these are

  1. Kobe Bryant – 88+ Ball Handle and Height 6’10”
  2. Stephon Curry – 92+ Ball Handle and Height 6’5″
  3. Kyrie Irving – 90+ Ball Handle and Height 6’5″
  4. Kemba Walker – 86+ Ball Handle and Height 6’5″
  5. Trae Young – 92+ Ball Handle and Height under 6’5″

You need to keep these requirements in mind when building your players in the MyBuild mode and, most importantly, if you want to have the sweet Kobe and Stephon’s smooth pro dribble techniques and animations in NBA 2K23.

So this was all about the requirements to unlock pro dribble in NBA 2K23.
