NBA 2K23 players claim the dunking mechanic has been broken for “almost a week” with no evidence of a fix in sight.
For reasons that continue to mystify, NBA 2K23 users regularly find issues that disrupt their enjoyment of the sports game. “Spammy” stealing mechanics have come under fire in recent weeks, for example

Fellow NBA 2K players have noticed a similar problem of late. One person responded to the thread with the following: “For real, went from dunk contest levels to not being able to dunk at all.”
Another regular user said they’ve been missing one or two dunks per game, even when no one’s contending the attempt.
