How To Alley Oop in NBA 2K21

Performing an alley-oop in NBA 2K21 is pretty easy as you just have to click a few buttons consecutively to perform it. In NBA 2K21, you can make an alley-oop to your teammate, to yourself, or even ask your teammate to throw an alley-oop to your character.

To make an alley-oop to your teammates, all you need to do is double-tap the lob pass button in your controller while pushing the stick to where you want to pass the ball. However, make sure that your teammate is near the basket or running towards the basket. Double tapping the lob pass button without anyone under the basket will just waste your possession of the ball.

  • PS4 – Double-tap Triangle
  • Xbox One – Double-tap Y
  • Nintendo Switch – Double-tap X

If you’re the one asking for the alley-oop from your teammates, all you need to do is just double press the same button. But before asking an alley-oop pass, make sure that you are running towards the basket. Otherwise, it will be a simple pass from your teammate.

To make an alley-oop to your self, run towards the basket and double-tap the lob button. This is almost identical to making an alley-oop for your teammate. The only difference is that you’re the one who will be completing the amazing shot.
