As the new NBA season looms on the horizon, the Phoenix Suns are proudly flaunting one of the league’s most formidable backcourts. Led by their homegrown talent, Devin Booker, the Suns made a significant addition last season in Kevin Durant. Despite the limited time available to develop their chemistry, the Suns managed to secure a playoff spot. However, they ultimately fell short against the Denver Nuggets. Nevertheless, this dynamic duo has had ample time during the offseason to refine their synergy.

In light of the Suns’ first preseason game, Booker’s message actually holds a great deal of merit. Judging by their evenly productive performance, we can say that the three will definitely be a problem for opposition teams. Booker is a skilled ball handler with fundamentally poised moves in his bag. Beal is known for constantly elevating his game, with both highlight-worthy and underrated offense in his arsenal. Durant boasts versatile scoring while being the best scorer of the modern-day NBA.

Fans go wild upon Books’ update

The Suns stand out as potentially the only team in the league that boasts a true Big Three. Fans are eagerly anticipating their dominance on the path to a championship. Amidst all this excitement, Devin Booker’s Spider-Man reference for the trio resonated with fans, as it echoed their sentiments.

One fan, @grandslamftw, expressed approval, stating, “Like I said, suns should sleepwalk to a title”. This comment reflected agreement with Booker’s assessment of the trio. The chemistry among the three players appears solid; the main challenge now is to maintain efficiency throughout the season and beyond.

Meanwhile, @comlykabom praised Devin Booker’s confidence in his team, remarking, “What a dork lol. I love it”. This comment embraced Booker’s unabashed endorsement of his teammates.

True to their nature, NBA fans didn’t shy away from having some fun with Booker on Twitter. @yungtitofent humorously put Booker in shoes of Tobey Maguire, since he was the first modern-day Spiderman. They wrote, “Ain’t no way he just compared himself to Tobey,” playfully jabbing at Book. 

Similarly, @MKG_Sports suggested, “Him KD & *Grayson Allen.” Grayson Allen’s addition to the Suns is seen as a valuable one, potentially offering stability to the roster. Allen comes as one of Duke’s best players from the 2010s.
