Devin Booker and the Phoenix Suns have been on their absolute best this season while battling it out for the top spot in the league with conference rivals Golden State Warriors. They went on an 18 game win streak during the beginning of the season breaking the previous franchise record of 17 games.

As the Suns continue to sprint past their opponents, one player who goes by the name of Devin Booker has been the franchise’s pillar through their success. Booker has been one of the league’s biggest young talents ever since he stepped into the league drawing comparisons to the late great Kobe Bryant who happens to be his inspiration.

Booker, despite being one of the best scorers in recent history, also has been one of the oldest players among the lot as well. The Phoenix Suns guard has often received enormous amounts of hate from fans of other teams for not being able to lead the team into the playoffs or for being too underqualified to be called an all-star. Yet Booker always finds a way to silence his haters.

In a recent matchup against the Charlotte Hornets, fans seated courtside took their chance to make a dig at the young baller while he was dribbling at half court before a time out. Watch and see what Booker had to say for an exchange.

“Take that Cody take that,” said the fan and Booker replied with,”Cant nobody take it.” Rightfully said mini goat! Booker has been extremely confident in his game modeling his skill from Kobe Bryant who was known as an extremely dominant and hardworking player. He is averaging 23.6 points with 5.2 rebounds and 4.6 assist shooting 44.9% from the field this season.

The six-foot-five-inch guard led the Phoenix Suns in the Bubble averaging a staggering 30.5 points, 6 assists and 4.9 rebounds. He became one of six players (Kobe Bryant, Wilt Chamberlain, Elgin Baylor, David Robinson and David Thompson) to score 70 points or higher and the youngest to have done so.

Among other accolades, Booker has been named conference player of the month on multiple occasions after having exceptional scoring nights and has one all-star three-point contest trophy as well. His most recent milestone was hitting the 10,000 career point mark while being the seventh youngest in the league’s history to have done it.
