The Post Hop Shot is a deadly move that can help create helpful space and guarantee the basket. However, who are the best post-hop shot players in NBA 2K23? Here, we list the best Post-Hop Shot players for three different height categories in NBA 2K23.
Players of NBA 2K are quite familiar with the name James Harden, who once again has strong stats in the game, also making for a strong Post Hop Shot. He's not the same shot creator he was in his prime, partially due to NBA rule changes and because Harden is getting older. Yes, he looked a bit slower than he did during his best days with the Houston Rockets, but Harden averaged 21.0 points and 10.5 assists as a Philadelphia 76er last season. He dropped to 18.6 and 8.6 in the playoffs, but the team was still significantly better when he played.
The Phoenix Suns point guard Devin Brooker also has decent Post Hop Shot stats, the highest among 6'5" and below players. He is the definition of a pure scorer, and throughout his career has managed to do most of it from inside the three-point line. The Phoenix Suns are perennial NBA Championship contenders, largely thanks to Booker being able to take over games offensively. His position also affects his hop shot stats making him a viable pick.
The 6'11" Serbian Center is a force of nature in basketball, and his stats showcase just that. He outshines every Post Hop Shots player in this height class and overall. Last season, Nikola Jokic became the 13th player to win the MVP in consecutive seasons, the second European player to win the award more than once, and was selected to his third All-NBA First Team.

Second, only to Jokic in stats, the 7' Philadelphia 76ers Center is the second-best Post Hop Shot option in NBA 2K23. The two-time MVP runner-up boasts an 81 3PT rating – close to the best among centers – and an 80 dunk rating. Embiid was in the running for MVP last season while coasting to a career-high 68 games played, 30.6 ppg, and 4.2 APG.
The 7'3" giant from Washington Wizards can play both at the Center or Power Forward positions, with decent stats in Post Hop Shots; he is a viable option in this height class. After getting traded mid-season from Dallas to Washington, Porzingis averaged 22.1 points, 8.8 rebounds, 2.9 assists, and 1.5 blocks per game in 17 contests. Makes over 47% of his shots from the field, 37% from deep, and 87% from the line. Injuries aside, he remains one of the best pure talents in the NBA.
