@Big Hands what was Booker doing in every postseason the same thing 😂😂 how you gonna hold this year against Tatum but just forget that Booker never made the playoffs until this year and he would’ve gotten bounced in the first round just like Tatum did if the Lakers were healthy 😂😂

@Big Hands Tatum dropped 50 in the play in and in the playoffs Tatum took his team to the Conference finals TWICE D Book wouldn’t have if the Lakers were healthy you know it and I know it also he is not slow tf last time I checked Tatum averaged more assists, Rebounds, AND POINTS, better defender Tatum legit guarded KD that whole series I never saw Booker guarding LeBron I’m sorry I love Booker but he ain’t above Tatum man

Saying some dumb stuff for clicks is the new black. Booker hasn't proven anything, other than that he is a ball hog who can score when no other scorer is on his team. I'll be happy if he doesn't screw it up when CP3 sets him up for easy buckets.

Stop disrespecting Devin Booker Don't compare him to Kobe Cause he the first Booker

Booker is Booker, he's not the next Kobe. Booker only cares about offense and can't guard a light pole. Booker should be guarding PG not Crowder or Bridges, instead he's on Beverley who is mostly a on non-threat on offense, not very mamba-like

With all due respect, Mr SAS, Devin Booker is NOT the next Kobe. For the past two seasons, and at such a young age, Booker has been a little better than a 48.5% shooter. Kobe was NEVER that efficient, not even in his best season.

Bro booker has one good playoff run against three injury ridden teams and one 40 point game trip dub and y’all saying he’s the next Kobe 😂😂 the kid hasn’t proved anything significant yet let’s see what he can do over the next three years like this kid hasn’t even been an allstar till this year let’s see what he can do over the next 5 years than we can say if he’s the next Kobe or not

There will always be some similarities/ comparisons made between the past and present-future players in the league. I think it can be an honor but also a tremendous weight in terms of high expectations.

NOOOO! Kobe Bryant >humble Devin Booker >emotional
What people need to do next season is start acknowledging guys like Devin Booker when we talk about guards & stop d***k riding Steph, Dame and all the marketable faces & names Fans and the media only care about stats & storylines, they ignore VALUE that's why I am glad Chris Paul showed everyone in the last round who the REAL MVP of the league was: Someone who can impact their team in "multiple" ways Jokic: 26pts, 10rbs, 8asts Embiid: 28, 10rbs, 2asts Westbrook: 22pts, 11asts, 11rbs Luka: 27pts, 8rbs, 8asts Giannis: 28pts, 11rbs, 5asts Can we really sit here and say that Jokic had the BEST season of all players: No He got the award simply because he.....played all 72 games, when did that become a criteria for winning the MVP When Giannis won back to back MVP, he missed 10 games the first time he won it & 9 games the second time he won it Chris Paul was the REAL MVP this season and is STILL the "best" point guard in the MVP.....hands down

No team is gonna win a title without a passing guard/court general like Magic, Nash, Stockton, AI; all the teams that have power forwards or centers directing plays is destined for failure.

Booker got mad game but he is not on Kobe level. Lets be for real. He can score at will true but Kobe was also a prime defender too. His killer mentality we only 2nd to mj. Mj and Kobe both generational top players that ruled with an iron fist. Devin booker is just an above average player but not on the elite level.

I've been a huge Booker fan since he came into the league, I was already a Suns fan, but I knew Booker would turn this franchise around (okay, technically CP3 did that, assisted by Monty Williams and James Jones), but I knew right from the start that Booker was special. And I've told people for years exactly what Stephen A. said: Booker's offensive game is the closest thing to Kobe that the league has ever seen. I can't wait to see Book go all Mamba Mode in the Finals

Max Keller I completely agree the suns looked great without Chris but like you said they won by the skin of there teeth and I’m really worried if cp3 doesn’t come back in game 3 and Kawhi comes back then it’s definitely gonna be a 7 game series and it’s gonna be really tuf for my suns to pull this off cause this is the legit La team unlike the fakers ( sorry but not)

The most frustrating thing about any sport is that analists only watch superstars that score most points , most rebounds etc. And they put bets on them and they don't even look at other players. They don't respect the chances of other teams. This season showed them that even the "worst" teams can defeat the best and when I saw their faces, I just died out of laughter. I stopped watching these comparisions when I've found out how brainwashing and stupid it is. They don't analyze the game, they analyze the players that play the most, score the most, and they have to be the faces of the league , they have to be the next kobe, lebron, jordan. No disrespect to these players, because their dedication to the game is absolutely insane and I love all of them for their passion for the things that they love to do. What about other players of the league? They don't have a passion? They don't care about the game? The thing is, that not everyone is a superstar in NBA or in any other league, but when they are there and playing, at least respect it. But staff of all 30 organisations and analists do the opposite. Unexpected trades, releases, just jumping around like it's nothing. It's just so sad to see...

thats the thing. i can clearly see that Clippers function and play better without Kawhi. When Kawhi is playing,...... he is great..... but the whole unit did not step up. So in conclusion, Kawhi and PG13 cant play side by side.
When cp3 leaves or retires the suns should heavily pursue lonzo ball he’d be a perfect replacement of he’s not better than cp3 but iq wise hed fit well
