Controller Settings

It seems so simple, but you’d be surprised how many people don’t check their controller settings before they load up a game of NBA2K24. These settings make a huge impact starting with your movement on defense, which is impacted by your “defensive assist,” setting. There’s a multitude of different settings that can make your head spin just by looking at them all. We recommend this YouTube video for your settings when it comes to your on-ball defense. Controller settings will also assist your offense, helping you with everything that you can think of when it comes to player movement.

Defensive Settings 

Ever wonder why your CPU defenders leave people open for no reason? Now that we’ve helped fix your controller settings, it's time to adjust your defensive settings. Defensive settings address things such as how your CPU players react to, going over or under on screens, how attached they stay to their assignment, what they collapse to the paint on, and so much more. This is truly the backbone of your NBA2K24 defensive scheme and imperative to getting consistent stops. For Defensive Settings, we recommend this YouTube video which will give you great defensive settings that work for both the My Team and the Regular Team game modes. 

Remember to check your defensive settings so you can play defense like you’re Anthony Davis!
