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 from the 2018/19 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 the 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 against the Milwaukee Bucks.

In the 2021-22 campaign, The Suns finished the season with the best record in the league and a franchise-best 64-18 record. Booker became the fourth youngest player in NBA history to score 11,000 points. Booker was also named to the All-NBA First Team for the first time in his career. However, the season culminated in disappointing fashion as they blew another 2-0 lead to lose to the Dallas Mavericks in seven games in the Conference Semis.
