Fake Pass is always a good maneuver to have your opponents second-guessing your next move in NBA 2K23. And while it may not always be successful against other human players, it is super good against AI-controlled teams.


It is not tough to do a Fake Pass in NBA 2K23. All that you need to do is to get the timing down. It can be done by pressing Triangle + Circle on PS or Y + B on Xbox. But when should you do it?

It is good idea to Fake a Pass as you are running around. We also recommend not continuing to do so over and over again. You can alternate things such as pass, shoot, or do another Fake Pass.

As mentioned earlier, it is not a good idea to continue Faking a Pass repeatedly. Doing so will let your opponents get a good read on you. This is why you should always try to mix things up.
