NBA 2K24 Controller Tips ft Joel ‘Lav’ Lazu Head Coach of Cavs Legion GC

by John Pomykala 31 Oct 2023

NBA 2K24 is out now and we’re excited for this new game and how it will change the NBA 2K League! To celebrate the release, we’re sharing some pro level insight from Cavs Legion GC Coach Joel ‘Lav’ Lazu, who’s going to highlight an important new feature and how KontrolFreek Thumb Grips enable you to take full advantage of it in your NBA 2K24 gameplay. 

NBA2K24 – New Defensive Move  

Each and every year brings a new iteration of gameplay for NBA2K. This year, there are some new badges introduced to the lineup, including the “Right Stick Ripper”.  

NBA2k24 this season brings forth an innovative method to enhance steal opportunities during ball handler defense. Introducing the 'Right Stick Ripper' defensive badge, empowering defenders with precise right stick techniques for securing steals. This move requires quick and precise stick movement which is why the KontrolFreek No-Slip Thumb Grips come in handy. When you are playing a close game, the smallest mistake can cost you the game, and there is NOTHING worse than your thumb slipping off the analog stick. This new move requires you to flick the stick fast, so having that extra grip is crucial.  

Why to use the ‘Right Stick Ripper’ Badge:  

Playing on-ball defense in NBA2K is one of the toughest skills to master in the game. Understanding the offensive set that you are facing, understanding our opponent’s player build, and anticipating their movements are all crucial in becoming a top level defender. This new badge adds a new element to the defensive focused builds. The ‘Right Stick Ripper’ gives the defender a small window to steal the ball away from their opponent that can lead to fast break opportunities and simply more possessions. If executed correctly, this will give your team a huge advantage and will force multiple turnovers. In NBA2K, the team that forces the most turnovers often wins the game.  

How to the ‘Right Stick Ripper’ Badge:  

When picking up the on-ball defense, your goal is to slide your feet, stay in front of your opponent, and bump them off of their desired path. When you do get that ‘bump’ you have a slight window to flick the stick up or down which can result in a steal.
