NBA 2K23 brings Giannis-like power to the paint, Dev promises

In NBA 2K23, the court is bigger than just the three-point arc. It should be obvious, but with last year’s game, Visual Concepts admitted that the shooters had too much of an advantage. Talented shooters made shots consistently and with less than natural effort, while even less skilled players could drain long jumpers and three-pointers if they just got an open look. Among a number of other gameplay changes in NBA 2K23, the focus of this fall’s game is to bring balance back to the offensive game, empowering players to work in the paint and attack the rim.

“We looked at how virtual games played out compared to the real NBA,” said NBA 2K game director Mike Wang. “And it was clear that we needed to give more love to slashers who love to finish at the rim. This meant expanding the tools to attack the basket.” With that in mind, NBA 2K23 kicks off with an improved Pro Stick, meant to give players more maneuverability in the paint.
