Based on the latest projections of how the rest of the NBA season will play out, the Phoenix Suns are expected to have the third-biggest turnaround in the NBA this year.
Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports First time All-Star Devin Booker of the Phoenix Suns. Devin Booker’s first experience in the true big-boy All-Star game — as the first representative of the Phoenix Suns in almost a decade — was something neither he nor the rest of us will ever forget.
The NBA All-Star Weekend has been filled with impressive 3-point shooting, thunderous dunks and impeccable skills. But unlike previous years, there’s a somber side to the weekend’s festivities, as it’s the first one without Los Angles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant.
Phoenix Suns star Devin Booker very nearly won his second 3-point contest on Saturday, scoring 26 in the championship round. However, Sacramento Kings guard Buddy Hield scored his 27th point on his final shot to take home the title.
It’s funny when Devin Booker is talked about in a way where he’s never been an All-Star, because while he hasn’t been, but this is actually his fifth year in a row being involved in All-Star Weekend since entering the league.
