The cover of NBA 2K is reserved for players who understand what it means to be truly great. Each member of the exclusive group has answered their call to greatness when it’s presented itself; this year is no exception. With so many talented athletes around the globe, choosing one player to grace the cover of NBA 2K23 was difficult — so we picked four. NBA 2K23 will have four editions, featuring decorated stars Devin Booker, Sue Bird & Diana Taurasi, and two versions with the legendary Michael Jordan. The featured cover athletes are all forces to be reckoned with when the ball is in their hands, possessing an uncanny ability to score buckets.
The late, great Kobe Bryant gifted a pair of shoes to Devin Booker in 2016 and signed them with a simple message: Be Legendary. Since that day, the Phoenix Suns guard has taken the five-time NBA champion’s words to heart, maturing into one of the league’s brightest stars. At only 25 years of age, Booker is a three-time All-Star, has already scored 70 points in a regular-season game — an accomplishment only five other players in NBA history have achieved – and has made an appearance in the NBA Finals. Much of his legacy has yet to be written, but he’s going above and beyond to prove he has what it takes to be a legend. Booker will stand front and center on –e cover of NBA 2K23: Standard Edition.
Sue Bird and Diana Taurasi have nothing left to prove. Bird is the WNBA’s all-time assists leader and Taurasi is the league’s all-time leading scorer. With seven championships total between them, Bird and Taurasi are icons who paved the way for the next wave of future WNBA stars. The duo has arguably done more for the league than any other player and make the perfect pair for the cover of NBA 2K23: WNBA Edition (physical edition only) .
Widely regarded as one of the greatest players to set foot on the hardwood, Michael Jordan dominated during his 15 years in the NBA. His Airness’ resume speaks for itself, but the six-time champion, five-time MVP, Slam Dunk Contest champion, and 1988 Defensive Player of the Year redefined greatness and sparked a generation of players wanting to be just like him. NBA 2K23: Championship Edition could’ve featured any number of outstanding players, but it’s only right that one of the greatest players to wear No. 23 dons the cover of NBA 2K23. He’ll also be the fixture of the NBA 2K23: Michael Jordan Edition — naturally.
This year, we hope these all-stars’ relentless pursuit of greatness will inspire you to flex on the competition and attack the basket with a similar hunger. NBA 2K23 is packed with all-new challenges, fresh MyTeam packs and content, and an immersive journey in MyCareer. Show you’re determined to be the best and claim your seat at the head of the table.
