Might be the steal of the 2015 draft....
I know the Heat liked him a lot, they though he was the best shooter in the draft. Miami had the tenth pick and would have taken Booker, but they didn't expect Justise Winslow to still be on the board, had Winslow been taken earlier, Booker would have probably ended up in Miami
He still is not a top 25 guard in the NBA. Garbage time buckets. I really don't like his game, because he doesn't make others better and is a gunner.
What Kobe brought later in his career was an insane level of competitiveness and a total hatred for losing. I don't see that in Book, or really anyone else in the game today. That was truly rare, Kobe and MJ were on another level for that and it made what were elite basketball skills go to another level. Let's not get into the titles comparison though, Kobe had Shaq and that won them the titles.ESPN commentator Stephen A. Smith is now comparing Devin Booker to Kobe Bryant.
Calls Booker the next Kobe.
Booker reminds me of Kobe when he dribbles hard into the lane and then releases his shot at the apex of his jump.
Both Devin and Kobe were sons of former NBA players and both were drafted in the 13th slot of their respective NBA Drafts.
Similar height and weight, too.
Of course, Booker is 24 now.
By the time Kobe was 24, he had already won three NBA titles.
He became a top 10 player when he developed his dribble drive penetration to the hoop.
Now they have to respect that which opens his outside game more.
Yeah terrible call but even more concerning is how can Booker not be aware of his foul situation. He cannot foul out of the game. He might be dumb.
