Hint: Act A Fool:
To do the "Act A Fool" move, press L2 + Square.

Alternately, press R2 + L2 + Square.

Hint: Stop Act A Fool:
When your opponent or CPI does an Act A Fool move, tap X exactly it starts. If done correctly, you will stop the Act A Fool move and take possession of the ball.

Hint: Bringing Down The House:
To do the "Bringing Down The House" move, when your Juice House meter is full, hold R1 + R2 + Triangle to ally-oop the ball to yourself and break the backboard. This is needed to win a game in the third tournament.
Max Mcfadden.

To do a "Bringing Down The House", press X, Circle, L1.

First, press Triangle to ally oop the ball to yourself. Then, hold L1 + L2 + R1 + R2 and press Circle and you should do "Bringing Down The House".

Hold L2 + R1 as you are approaching the front of the basket, then press Triangle.

Hint: Hackey Sackin':
Press L2 + R1 + Square.

Hint: Magic Handles:
Hold both Juice buttons while holding L3 + R3.

Hint: Off The Hizzle:
To do the "Off The Hizzle" move, press R1 + Square.

Alternately, press L2 + Square.

Hint: Put Back Dunk:
Press R2 + Triangle to do the Put-Back Dunk, once it has been unlocked.

Hint: Pass To Self:
Hold R2 + R1 and press Square. If done correctly, you should throw the ball against the backboard and back to yourself. Note: Do not do this when an opponent is nearby or after an "Off The Hizzle".
Craig Dack.

To the "Pass To Self" move, hold R1 + R2 then press X. Your baller should throw the ball off the backboard and it should come right back to him.

Hint: Smell Dem Kicks:
Press L2 + R2 + R1 + Square.

Hint: Stunt Dunk:
To do a stunt dunk, press R1 + R2 + Square while in front of your opponent going towards the basket.

Hint: Clear the ball without running pass the line:
If you have the special move to pass to a friend on the sideline, do so when you need to clear the ball.

Hint: Defeating Jason Kidd in Rags 2 Riches:
Hold L1 and press Quick Steal to push Jason Kidd down. He will drop the ball sometimes. Make sure you get ahead of him frequently, but not too much; if anyone scores 21 points, Jason Kidd automatically wins. It is also a good idea to miss your shot a few times, then when he rebounds the ball make sure he is near the sideline and push him out of bounds. The ball will stay inside for an easy steal.
Tim Sedillo.

To defeat Jason Kidd, keep tieing to get the amount of steals you need. Then when you have enough, win.

Hint: Easy money:
Select "Play Modes" then choose "1 vs. 1". Next, select 2 for 2 players. Choose the file for your Rags 2 Riches then select a player. Have the other player just stand there and do nothing.
Divas Sachdeva.

Keep playing the same TV Tournament repeatedly to keep getting money.

Go to the practice mode and make a note of all the moves a player can do. After you have made all the tricks available, always Bring Down The House. This will give you an extra 25,000 credits, and if you do not let the opponent score this will give you another extra 20,000 credits. Note: You do not have to make the all 13 points to win the match. If you win the first round, your opponent will start the second round with the ball. If you start the second round and the house meter is full, quickly foul the opponent until he releases the ball and go to the Bring Down The House. You will receive the 25,000 + 20,000 points. Remember that the opponent must have ball possession to make the Goochy Goochy (scoreless player).

Hint: Off Head Oop:
Get in front of your opponent and be in the paint. Press L2, Square then walk to the rim and you will jump and dunk.
ricky caballero.

Hint: White Derivishin:
Press L2 + R2 + Square.

Hint: Secret shot:
Press L2, then press Circle.
ricky caballero.

Hint: Easy TV Tournaments:
Enable the BALLERS BALLERS BALLERS BALLERS code to unlock all players. Go to the TV tournaments, then change divisions. Go all the way down to "Playmakers", and select Kevin Garnett. Use him and you should be able to complete at least the first three episodes. You will not unlock any players from the tournaments, but it is a good way to get credits for custom characters.

Hint: Enhance stats with shoes:
Your baller gets enhanced stats if he is wearing certain shoes. It does not matter what else he is wearing.

If he has elbow pads, choose "Blue". Go back to the main part of "Inside Stuff", and your baller should have their home jersey. Note: This does not work with any other jersey.

Glitch: Misspelling:
At the main menu, go to "Inside Stuff" then to "Phrase-ology". Enter the ONE ON ONE code and will say you unlocked "Julius Irving's" alternate gear, insted of "Julius Erving's".

Run towards the side of the court closet to the camera. Face the camera, then hold Down and keep moving the Right Analog-Stick Down and you should juke out of the court.

Glitch: Make ball stick on backboard:
Get to the corner closest to the camera and the backboard. Do a Pass To Self and the ball should get stuck on the side of the backboard for a few seconds.

Glitch: Slam dunk without leaving the ground:
Exactly when the other player is starting to dunk, press Circle or Square to attempt a steal. The player should be doing the dunk action, but still be on the ground.
