Rookie shooting phenom Devin Booker was snubbed from the Rising Stars Challenge, which ostensibly exists to assemble a game between the best youngsters in the NBA. Assistant coaches across the league apparently have been snoozing during Suns games -- understandable, but also unforgivable.
Just realized no Devin Booker for the Rising Stars game. Not sure what Assistant coaches have been watching the last few months.— Bobby Marks (@BobbyMarks42) January 27, 2016
Devin Booker, Justise Winslow, & Willie Cauley-Stein should form their own Rising Stars, show up at All-Star weekend and challenge winner— Scott Howard (@ScottHoward42) January 27, 2016
Wow! No book??— Eric Bledsoe (@EBled2) January 27, 2016
Booker was possibly squeezed out by the new "U.S.A versus The World" format when it was simply rookies versus sophomores in the past. Come to think of it, "Devin Booker versus The World" would be a better event than a Rising Stars game with no Devin Booker at all.
Watch Booker take his revenge on the universe, starting in Cleveland.
