Before you can start making flashy passes during a game, you will need to adjust a few settings first. By default, passing in NBA 2K23 is set to “Normal” in the controller settings. This means that if you want to make flashy passes in the game, you will need to alter this setting. This can be done by;

  1. Go to “Settings” from the pause menu
  2. Scroll down until you find “Controller Settings”
  3. Head over to “Passing” and switch it to “Flashy”

Now, you can pull off a flashy pass during any style of game in NBA 2K23 by pressing the pass button, which is either RB (for Xbox) or R1 (for PlayStation). Simply point the analog stick in the direction of the player you want to pass the ball to and hit the pass button to perform a flashy pass. Alternatively, you can revert back to the default passing settings, and double tap B (for Xbox) or Circle (for PlayStation) to make a flashy pass during a game.
