The complete list of cover athletes for NBA® 2K23 was introduced today by 2K. Devin Booker, a Phoenix Suns shooting guard, three-time NBA All-Star and member of the 2021-22 Kia All-NBA First Team, will be included in this year’s Standard Edition and the cross-generational Digital Deluxe Edition. Earlier this week, 2K revealed Michael Jordan, Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi as cover stars for special editions of the game.
“It’s a dream to have me on the cover of NBA 2K,” said Devin Booker. “I’ve been a huge NBA 2K fan since I was a kid, and it’s surreal to finally join the exclusive club of basketball greats who were cover athletes. I’m also honored to share this year’s covers with the legendary Michael Jordan, who changed the game for all players who came after him, as well as two of the WNBA GOATs of all time, Diana Taurasi and Sue Bird, who continue to do so a huge impact on the game.”
“It was only fitting for Michael Jordan and Devin Booker to be the global cover stars of NBA 2K23,” said Alfie Brody, NBA 2K vice president of global marketing strategy. “Michael has established himself as one of the greatest athletes in history and his cross-generational impact on the game is remarkable. MJ’s accomplishments, coupled with Devin Booker’s young but already stellar career, will continue to inspire basketball fans around the world for years to come. It also goes without saying that this year’s WNBA cover celebrates two of the league’s standout players, Diana Taurasi and Sue Bird, who continue to make their mark on basketball history.”
On PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation® 4 (PS4TM) and Nintendo Switch, the Standard Edition costs $59.99. and $69.99 on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation® 5 (PS5TM).
