Phoenix Suns shooting guard Devin Booker will grace the cover of NBA 2K23, a surreal moment for a 25-year-old who has played the signature NBA video game series since he was a kid.

Another layer got put on that this summer when Booker put on the iconic motion capture suit to have some of his signature movements tracked to be in the game.

To break it down in simpler terms, when you play as Booker, his moves like crossovers, jumpers, dunks and more will be authentic since it was taken directly from his own motions.

Motion capture technology has helped sports video games become more realistic than ever since the mid-2000s. The process evolved from recreating legitimate human motions to making it even more genuine by giving individuals their own signature movements by actually getting them in the suit.

From Shohei Ohtani’s swing to Kylian Mbappe’s dribbling, the technology has grown over the years to become more and more precise, expanding from just one or two simple motions to dozens with intricate specificities.

So now, when you’re controlling Booker and hitting a crossover into a dribble pull-up or drilling a baseline fadeaway, it’s going to look as close to the real deal as possible.
