“I’ve always said it was Paul George,” Ronnie 2K said of the best NBA 2K player. “I feel like he’s getting to play less because he’s, you know, doing his podcast thing, which is, by the way, awesome. His podcast is so good. Yeah, I think his seat is kind of like starting to empty. I mean, Devin Booker’s definitely up there. Like, we got to see him play a lot last year and he won the ESPN Players Tournament.

“I would love to see a game between Devin Booker and Paul George. See that rivalry come to NBA 2K. That would be really, really fun.”

These comments might spur another saga in the Paul George and Devin Booker rivalry.

Earlier this offseason, the two went back-and-forth after Klay Thompson talked about his antics during last season’s early matchup with the Suns on George’s Podcast. Booker took offense to George specifically mentioning him when asking the question.

In 2020, ESPN hosted a players’ tournament on NBA 2K where some of the league’s best competed in a 16-team tournament. Booker won the whole tournament after defeating Deandre Ayton in the championship. George did not compete in the tournament.

Booker was also the cover athlete for NBA 2K23.

George and Booker have been known not to like each other long before this offseason. George missed their matchup in the first round of this year’s playoffs due to a knee injury.

Could we see Booker and George settle their beef in a game of NBA 2K?
