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.

Kobe gave Devin Booker signed shoes that said “be legendary” on them the day he dropped 70 that fact alone makes me a Booker fan if the mamba says something like that u know he sees himself in them
J Breeze

And people in these comments still wanna say hes only a second option... smh just keep watching the legend unfold.
lets go Book!! SUNS!!! a playoff series, or even better a playoff win, will have a huge impact on the team
When discussing top players ever from Michigan, people forget Book is from the Mitten. Top 10 from the Mitten in my opinion.

Everybody keep talking about Luka and Zion but forget that this man just turned 24. He was better than all of them when he was 20 but bc he was stuck in Phoenix nobody will acknowledge it. It’s okay book the real fans knew and still know how good you are. Future best player in the league just wait.
