It’s been frustrating that bigger players get bodied by smaller defenders when going up for a finish in the paint. In NBA 2K23, the Bully badge aims to fix this increasingly infuriating, yet fequent occurrence.

What is the Bully badge?

Bully is a new badge for NBA 2K23 and increases the ability to finish strong in the paint by bulldozing through traffic. It is in the Finishing category of badges.

2K lists Giannis Antetokounmpo and Lebron James are perfect examples of this badge, and while we have to see the effectiveness of the badge during gameplay, we expect to see some sort of benefit provided by this new badge.

Who should equip Bully?

Bigger slashers are the target audience of this badge, as they’ll hopefully be able to finally use their size and weight to their advantage in the paint.

We will know which Tier of finishing badges Bully is in soon, but if the badge is even somewhat effective, it could be one of the best badges for slashers of all kinds.
