Former Kentucky Wildcat Devin Booker is off to a solid start to the season, averaging 23.5 points along with 4.3 assists.

Booker has shown a ton of potential during his first few years in the league, reaching several key scoring milestones and putting on a show during the NBA Bubble last year.

Yesterday, he was the subject of the featured story on ESPN.

It’s a fascinating story by Michael Wilbon that takes a deeper dive into Booker’s relationship with Kobe Bryant, his experience on the Suns, his time at Kentucky, and his family and charity work.

Booker is one of the more popular former Wildcats during the Calipari era, despite just being here for one year and being a guy that wasn’t the superstar of the team.
