Devin Booker probably doesn’t think his NBA 2K21 rating is where it should be, but he at least got a little boost after his best season yet.

Booker earned an 88 with the first offseason ratings update, putting him in even company with Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell and Atlanta Hawks point guard Trae Young.

Los Angeles Clippers forward Paul George also came in at an 88, something he humbly guessed correctly before the Thursday reveal.

Denver Nuggets guard Jamal Murray (87) and Utah center Rudy Gobert (87) were ahead of the Celtics’ duo of Kemba Walker and Jaylen Brown (86).

For Booker, it’s a minor increase after he carried an 86 and 87 most of this past year.

The bump came after the 23-year-old averaged 26.6 points, 4.5 rebounds and 6.5 assists per game in 2019-20 while shooting 49% overall and 35% from deep.

Atop the ratings, Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James remains the leader with a 98, and Giannis Antetokounmpo is just behind at 97.

Houston’s James Harden (96), Brooklyn’s Kevin Durant (95), Golden State’s Stephen Curry (95), Portland’s Damian Lillard (95), Dallas’ Luka Doncic (94), Miami’s Jimmy Butler (93) and Boston’s Jayson Tatum (90) fill out the 90-plus players heading into next season.
