As we enter the slowest month of the year for basketball, let’s reflect on the best draft pick the Suns have made since Amare Stoudemire went 9th to the Suns nearly 15 years ago.
Devin Booker has burst onto the NBA scene over the past two years after a stellar year at Kentucky. He won 6th Man of the Year as a freshman at Kentucky, then made First-Team All-NBA Rookie, has participated in both All-Star weekends (Rising Stars, Three-Point Shootout, Skills Challenge), and this past year became one of only 6 players in NBA history to score 70+ points in a single NBA game. And he’s still just 20 years old.
Now he’s the leader of #TheTimeline for the Suns, one of four core players aged 20 or under who hope to grow into the next great Suns team.
Let’s watch his progression in this great video I found on youtube.
