Hall of Fame Center Kevin Garnett Praises Devin Booker

Former NBA legend Kevin Garnett knows a thing or two about winning basketball and he seems to see something special brewing with the Phoenix Suns and particularly guard Devin Booker.

Garnett was talking with ex-teammate and future Hall of Fame player Paul Pierce on Showtime basketball today and he went in full detail as to why Booker should still be the go-to guy in Phoenix despite the Suns now having Kevin Durant and Bradley Beal.

Garnett brought up valuable points as to why Booker should still be getting the go-to opportunities in Phoenix. From being younger and Durant allowing more spacing, it gives opportunities for Booker to cook on the court.

We obviously saw the results in last year’s playoff run as he looked like the best version of himself as a player both offensively and defensively.

Booker even became the second player in NBA history behind Michael Jordan to record 350 points and 70 assists in his first 10 games of the postseason last year.

Booker will have even more pressure on him next season to deliver a trophy to Phoenix. But with guys like Durant and newcomer Beal alongside him, the new-look Suns can be a very dangerous team if you solely focus on just one person.
