NBA 2K23 cover man Devin Booker ranked just outside top-10

Sep 6, 2022, 9:40 AM

Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker opens the 2022-23 season with a 91 rating on NBA 2K23, the video game revealed on Tuesday.

That’s not quite enough for the cover athlete to make it into the top-10.


Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo was the lone player with a ranking of 97.

The Lakers’ LeBron James, Golden State’s Stephen Curry, Brooklyn’s Kevin Durant, Denver’s Nikola Jokic and Philadelphia’s Joel Embiid were also in the chase for the top rating with 96.

Dallas’ Luka Doncic, the Clippers’ Kawhi Leonard, Memphis’ Ja Morant, Boston’s Jason Tatum and Miami’s Jimmy Butler were rated from 93-95.

A few of those names getting the nod over Booker didn’t go unnoticed by Suns fans, especially.
