With previous versions of 2K, unlocking pro dribble moves was a necessary step if you hoped to have any success getting past formidable NBA defenses. With NBA 2K22, it’s still essential to learn these pro dribble moves to develop your player correctly, but you’ll have to go about it in a slightly different fashion. In this guide, we’ll explain everything you need to know about how to unlock pro dribble moves in NBA 2K22 and list out all the requirements.

How to unlock Pro Dribble Moves in NBA 2K22

Similar to previous NBA 2K games, you will first need to head over to the ‘Training Center’ to raise your player’s stats and hone in on your dribbling moves. If you’re looking to enhance your ball handling, you should focus primarily on ‘Speed with Ball’ and ‘Ball Handling’ training exercises. 

While there are certainly other stats that can give you an additional boost, pro dribble unlocks only focus on these two stats. Consistently completing multiple rounds of training will also help to boost any given stat, which will result in you being able to pull off more complicated ‘pro dribble moves’ during the game.
