Get the full details for how to complete every different type of layup in NBA 2k24 here.
High layup builds are more viable than ever this year, however, you will need to take the time to learn the various inputs and the situations that you should use each one.
Scoops and floaters are very usable this year if you are crafty but we do not recommend skipping dunk entirely.
If you find yourself in a backdoor cut situation, you are going to want to have dunk instead of layup to finish.
