I like Booker's attitude. He came off the bench at Kentucky because of how stacked that team was, and instead of letting that stunt his development like so many others, he took it as a challenge. Iron sharpens iron, and now he's a fantastic NBA player.

I've been saying for years that this guy is a Kobe replica. Both were number 13 pics, both similar mamba mentality, shot selection, mechanics. You can see the Kobe in him. If this guy was on the right team from the get go, he would have already been in those MVP talks. Excited to be a Suns fan and glad he's getting the recognition he deserves...and now, the surrounding talent
Well Deserved 💪🏾
