The shooting guard averaged 10.0 points, 2.0 rebounds, and 1.1 assists for Kentucky and chose to enter the NBA in 2015 after completing his freshman year.

As for his love life, Devin Booker is rumored to be dating Kendall Jenner. They even went on a quarantined road-trip together in 2020, but both personalities are yet to confirm their relationship. 

Devin Booker is an exciting talent in the NBA 2K21 game. The Suns’ star guard has been given an overall rating 88 and the creators have awarded him 35 special badges. 

Devin Booker NBA Career

Booker has so far been a one-team guy as he still plays for the Phoenix Suns, the team who drafted him in 2015. Booker was the 13th overall pick, and he immediately began showcasing his talent in the league. 

He posted 30 point games frequently, and Booker finished fourth in the Rookie of the Year Voting. Massive improvements were seen in his sophomore season, and Booker’s scoring touch was appreciated by several legends who played the game. 

Booker also became the youngest player to score 60 and 70 points in an NBA game when he achieved the feat against the Boston Celtics in 2017, aged just 20. His record-breaking capability was immense, and the Suns tightened their relationship by offering him a five-year max $158 million contract in July 2018.

Booker averaged 26.6 points during the 2018/19 regular season, but it wasn’t enough to guide the Suns into the playoffs. He repeated a similar scoring performance in the following year, but this turned out to be different as the 2019/20 regular-season. While they missed out on the playoffs yet again, the Suns came mighty close as they finished with an 8-0 winning run.

This was certainly the sign of things to come. With an excellent off-season where they added the likes of Chris Paul and Jae Crowder, Booker and the Suns flourished as they finished as the second best team in the Western Conference. Not only that, they were incredible in the playoffs as well.

Defeating the likes of Lakers and the Clippers, Booker in his first playoff run made it all the way to the Finals. Despite taking a 2-0 lead, the inexperienced Suns cracked and lost the Finals with four successive losses. Given that they were only two games away from a championship, expect to see a much more motivated Devin Booker for the 2021-22 season.
