If you have ever watched the Suns live in action inside Footprint Center, you know that no player receives such a loud ovation as Devin Booker does when he is introduced into the lineup.

After all, Booker is the last remaining player from the Suns 2021 NBA Finals run; he has been through some of the worst seasons in franchise history and he has played a tremendous role in bringing stars to play alongside him in the Valley.

When you think of the Phoenix Suns, you think of Devin Booker. He has played in Phoenix for all 9 seasons of his career and has built the new era of the Suns that fans know of today.

Yet, despite all of this, Booker failed to receive enough votes in the initial round of All-Star fan voting to even land inside the top-10 of shooting guards in the Western Conference.

According to fans, D-Book has had less of a role than Austin Reaves, who comes off the bench for the Lakers, and Ja Morant, who has played just 9 games this season.

In the bottom left, you can see all of the guards that have received more All-Star votes than Devin in the early stages:

Of course, Booker was asked about this before the Suns win against the Miami Heat on Friday night.

In response, he slowly shook his head when questioned if he was disappointed by the results.

While Booker is not known for his outbursts of emotion during press conferences, the slow nod of the head caught the attention of fans, hinting at an underlying sense of disappointment reflected in his expression.
