Devin Booker’s previous season

Devin Booker vs 76ers

After making the NBA Finals the previous season, Devin Booker and the Phoenix Suns were hoping to go one better and win the title in 2021-22. However, despite having a franchise-best and league-leading 64-18 record, they were unable to capitalise on it. The Dallas Mavericks eliminated them in the Western Conference playoffs. Devin Booker averaged a career-high 26.8 points last season. The guard shot 46.6% from the field, including 38.3% from beyond the arc, and 86.8% from the foul line. Booker scored 35 or more points in 13 games, including four games with 40 or more points.

Booker’s defensive abilities were also on display, as he averaged 1.1 steals per game. While he isn’t a terrific defender, he is certainly working hard on that end of the court. Nonetheless, Booker did not play in this year’s All-Star Game. This sparked outrage after Steph Curry and Ja Morant were named starters for the All-Star Game.  The season concluded in a devastating Game 7 loss in Phoenix against Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks. Booker and company were defeated 123-90, with Doncic scoring more than the whole Suns team at halftime.

Booker signed a shoe deal agreement with Nike this summer, extending their connection through 2029. He first joined the aforementioned organisation in 2015. With that, a signature shoe contract is quite likely. The All-Star guard recently made headlines by signing a four-year, $224 million supermax contract deal with the Suns and starring on the new player cover for NBA 2K23. Booker will look to bounce back from a crushing 2021-2022 campaign and lead Phoenix to its first NBA title this forthcoming season.
