There are many tools in NBA 2K games that allow players to be as eye-catching as they want, especially in the neighborhood. One of the best ways to score while looking good while doing it is alley-oop. Here’s how to throw an alley-oop in NBA 2K21.
To throw an alley-oop at your teammates in NBA 2K21, all you need to do is double-tap the balloon pass button while pushing the left stick in the direction you want the pass to go. It will be Y on Xbox, Triangle on PlayStation or X on Nintendo Switch.
Your teammates will need to be near the basket or move to the basket for this to register, otherwise you run the risk of ending up throwing the ball out of bounds. You will see a small white circle under the feet of the partner to whom the pass will be made. If you don’t like where it is, just press the left stick in the right direction.
There are times when you want to be as conspicuous as possible to send messages, especially when playing online. We have all been there. This is where the auto alley-oop comes in handy.
To launch into an alley-oop in NBA 2K21, simply double-tap the balloon button while walking to the basket. It is pretty much the same as a normal side alley, except that you will need a lot more space to be able to complete it.
That’s everything you need to know about how to throw an alley-oop in NBA 2K21. If you are enjoying the game, don’t forget you can buy cheap 2K22 MT on MTStacks store!
