NBA Role: go-to scoring two guard • Future Top DOG

The Next Great Two Guard? Phoenix’s Devin Booker is on a fast track to superstardom in the Association; with similar size and outside shooting ability to Klay Thompson (GS), Book combines deadly sniping w/ a lock-tight handle on a nightly basis; capable scorer and shot creator off the bounce – likes going to a (pseudo) side-step, gather J in the corner, can split defenders en route to easy baskets; more accurate shooter than Raylan Givens if there’s an inch of space – launches long bombs without wasting motions, can knock down Js on the run, off curls, spotting up…you name it; always seems to be under control with the ball in his hands; adding strength will help Book improve as a defender & develop a post game, two areas that could set him apart from any of the league’s emerging swingmen; it’s no longer an if – when will Booker earn his first All-Star appearance?; is Book (already) the face of the Suns? – scored 70 POINTS* v. BOS (Mar. ’17) – if not, he’s well on his way

*6th player in league history to score 70
