Phoenix Suns All-Star Devin Booker’s cover for the NBA 2K23 video game was revealed on Thursday.

It’s been a big 24 hours for Booker, after the All-Star formally inked a four-year supermax extension through the 2027-28 season worth a projected $214 million on Wednesday night.

Phoenix also has Mercury legend Diana Taurasi sharing a 2K23 cover, the WNBA edition, with friend and long-time Seattle Storm star Sue Bird.

The 25-year-old is coming off his first All-NBA season, making First Team as a guard, and finished fourth in the MVP race.

He is a two-time All-Star who averaged 25.6 points per game or more in each of his last four seasons, a career-high 26.8 per contest in 2021-22.

Booker is the first Suns drafted player to make the All-NBA First Team since Amar’e Stoudemire and Steve Nash in 2006-07.

Booker, a gamer and Twitch streamer, is also the first Suns player in the game’s existence — which dates back to NBA 2K released in 1999 — to land on the cover.

Past covers have highlighted then-future Suns like Miami Heat center Shaquille O’Neal on 2K6 and 2K7 and New Orleans Hornets point guard Chris Paul on 2K8.

NBA Live has not had a Suns player on the cover.

NBA 08 produced by San Diego Studio, which makes MLB The Show, had Stoudemire during his prime in Phoenix.

Booker had a 91 rating in NBA 2K22’s final update. Perhaps the cover athlete will get a boost in the next edition.
