NBA 2K22 dribble unlock requirements for every dribble move

NBA 2K22's dribble requirements are a lot more forgiving than usual.

NBA 2K22 dribble requirements are a bit kinder this year.

Unlike the last NBA 2K game, this one has a fair few pro moves capped at lower attributes. You won't have to manage your career perfectly or grind all the way past 95 to hit your goal.

    As with previous NBA 2K games, you'll head to the training center to raise your stats in NBA 2K22. If you're after dribble moves, focus on speed with ball and ball handling training exercises the most. Other stats are helpful in general, but dribble unlocks only focus on those stats. Completing multiple rounds of training will also give you an extra boost to a given stat, which is handy for pulling off more complicated moves during a tough game.

    This is your standard dribble move as you head down the court. It's not quite as important as some of the other styles, admittedly, but experimenting with the right one to work with your other combos is a good idea.
