Devin Booker must become an All-Star this seasonFrom young player on the rise to one of the best young players in the league to one of the best shooting guards in the league, we are seeing it from year one to year two to year three. The question is if everyone else is seeing it, and we will find out the answer when the final All-Star rosters are revealed Jan. As was the case with former Suns Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe in the past, the starpower in the Western Conference makes it an immense challenge to become an All-Star guard in the West. The Suns are when Booker plays during a season in which they fired their coach three games into the year and traded their then-best player, Bledsoe. That win-loss record might not sound like the most glowing endorsement, but, please, let me sprinkle some context on top.
Suns’ Devin Booker not selected to 2018 NBA All-Star game
That postseason appearance is still the last one for the three-year Phoenix Suns guard. He is expected to be a future All-Star. But when will the Suns reach playoff level, presumably with Booker still as their star? It was probably the most disappointing [season] for me. So I started my second year. And with so many things going on here, we fell super short.
Sacramento led by as many as 21 points in the first half in handing the Suns a 14th consecutive loss, , Sunday afternoon at Golden 1 Center. Nobody is going to feel sorry for us. The Suns are a loss away from tying a franchise record for consecutive defeats. They lost 15 in a row last season and may match that Wednesday at Los Angeles against the Clippers. I know me, I'm going to be at All-Star weekend, but right after that, I've got to touch a basketball and still polish up on things. I hope that everybody has that same mindset.

Even in the dog days of summer, social media can be buzzing about the silliest of things, and the latest controversy is centered on Suns star Devin Booker complaining about being double-teamed during a pickup game. It reached the point that Nets star Kevin Durant felt compelled to chime in with a long series of tweets. U need double teams all game? In pickup? Cmon now, what we doing?
Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker has made headlines this week for that pickup game video. The Suns will be hoping their star man can attract attention at a similar rate during the regular season. High draft picks have struck out, the head coach has changed multiple times. The organisation has made news off the court far more frequently than on it in recent years. Playing on terrible Suns teams, Booker has been a divisive figure at times. The 6. While draft decisions were critiqued — and it remains to be seen if Phoenix nailed it — they have notably strengthened their starting five with Dario Saric and Ricky Rubio.
