Video: Phoenix Suns Devin Booker nears triple-double vs. Klay Thompson

New, comments

Phoenix Suns rookie Devin Booker, just 19 years old, came close to his first triple-double of his career. For the record, no teenager has ever recorded a triple double before. The youngest in NBA history was LeBron James, who was 20 at the time.

Booker resembles the Warriors' Klay Thompson a bit, though Booker appears to be more of a playmaker while Thompson is a much, much better defender.

With Nerlens Noel about to miss the Rising Stars Challenge and Devin Booker already there in Toronto for the Three-Point Contest, I'm thinking that Booker should be named to the Rising Stars squad.
