NBA 2K23 How to do Skill Dunk and Rim Hang

NBA 2K23 is pretty good so far. I have positive reviews about the game and I am enjoying it so far. There is so much to do in every game mode. I certainly hoped the visuals had been better but it is still undoubtedly good especially on next gen.

It is sad that PC users are still stuck with current gen graphics and I feel it is a bit unfair for the PC race.

NBA 2K23 introduced so many new dunk animations. Dunking now has a meter which you can use for more flashy and impactful dunks. Dunking animations this year are so smooth. Even the follow up animations are better.

How to do the Rim Hang Skill Dunk and then Hang on the Rim in NBA 2K23 ?

Firstly let me tell you that if you want to get the best experience with the game it is recommended that you use a good controller. PC users on keyboard, you guys are missing out on so much. The controls are glitchy not only in the game but also on the menu.

Now lets talk about the new Rim Hang Skill Dunk in NBA. In order to do a skill dunk you have specific combinations on the right stick.

The Rim Hang is a new feature added this year where you could continue hanging on the rim of the basket after scoring a dunk.

Remember that you cannot Rim Hang from any dunk. There is a specific dunk that allows you to Rim Hang and then continue doing it for as long as you want. 

To do the Rim Hang Skill Dunk you need to :

PlayStation : Press R2 + Direction towards the basket + Flick the Right Stick down and then hold it down. (basically flick once down and then flick down one more time but this time just hold it down until you finish the dunk)

Xbox : Press RT + Direction towards the basket + Flick the Right Stick down and then hold it down.

PC (Keyboard) : Press Sprint + Direction towards the basket + Press the Right Stick down button once and then press and this time hold it down.

Direction of the Right Stick should be Camera Relative.

You will be doing a dunk which ends with your player hanging on the rim for a short while.

To continue hanging on the rim do this :

Keep the R2 (PS) , RT (Xbox) and Sprint (PC Keyboard) pressed even after completing the dunk. 

Move the Left Stick on console and movement keys on keyboard to swing your legs around.  Move the Right Stick up to do a pull up on the rim. For keyboard press the Right Stick Up button.

Remember that Right Stick is the Pro Stick in the game. Also that if you continue hanging on the Rim for too long you will get a technical foul. So be careful about that.
