Prior to the Suns meeting with the Hawks on Friday, Booker spoke about his initial reaction when he heard that he would be heading to Indianapolis in a few weeks.

Speaking with Duane Rankin at Azcentral, D-Book admitted that it came as a bit of a surprise: “It means a lot. I was honestly unsure to be completely honest.” 

Suns’ head coach, Frank Vogel, commented on Booker’s selection as well. Vogel asserted that Booker deserves to be a starter on the Western Conference team.

This season, Devin Booker is averaging 28.2 points per game, ranking him 7th in the NBA. Additionally, he ranks 2nd among shooting guards.

If Booker were to stay on this pace in the 2nd half of this year’s campaign, he would average a career-high in assists and points.

Most recently, to end a successful January, Booker went on a three-game tear where he averaged just above 50 points per game. As a result, he was awarded the Western Conference Player of the Month title.

Booker will join his teammate Kevin Durant for the All-Star game on February 18th.
