Devin Booker: The Next Big NBA Star?


Recommended Posts

I’m going on record as saying DBook is going to be the next big thing in the NBA. The bubble last year was just a glimpse, and after this first round against the Lakers, Booker showed what he’s capable of. I think with a more solid PG (Chris Paul is washed), Booker can flourish in PHX.

He's a total stud.  Has been for a while in the league but people are now finally paying attention because the Suns are actually pretty good.  

He's my favorite player in the NBA, even though I watch very little NBA.

I knew he was a baller, for sure. During this series though, he showed he had some killer instinct mentality, and I’d imagine that will only grow with his game evolving. I’m excited to see how his career progresses.

I'm happy to see that he's starting to get more and more notoriety and I think you're right about this game.

Named my first pup after him, Booker.

I have always thought Booker had the potential and talent to be great. Before the 2015 NBA draft, I had a debate with a couple basketball guys on BGP about Booker versus D'Angelo Russell. I thought Booker's talent was being discounted in the draft.

Booker has an interesting game. He is not some kind of dead-eye three point shooter, but the casual fan may think that (last night he was on from deep). He has an old school mid-range or get to the rim type game. Still a little weak on the defensive end, but the addition of Ayton has helped that. Also, Booker is an incredibly underrated passer.

I am not a fan of CP3, but I can't deny the impact he has had on franchises the last few years. Dude is the epitome of a floor general and has allowed Booker, et al. to flourish. He is "washed" in the sense when you need him most, it seems he comes up gimpy.

 I heard an analyst commenting on this today. He was talking about the impact of Paul teaching Booker how to take his game to a higher level.

Something he is still very good at is settling a team that may be losing momentum. You could see that last night.

They are going to win the series. 

But even if they don't, it doesn't mean Booker won't be a superstar, he's just not one yet.
