Booker will be an All-Star after all

NBA: Orlando Magic at Phoenix Suns Jennifer Stewart-USA TODAY Sports

When the NBA announced its All-Star rosters, it was head-scratching to see Devin Booker left off the list.

Booker has put up great numbers all season for a Phoenix Suns team that has performed above expectations and sits at 4th in the Western Conference, only 4.5 games out from 1st.

Booker is averaging just under 25 points per game to go along with nearly 4 assists per game while shooting a career-high 50.1 percent from the floor while leading Phoenix to a 20-10 record.

And while he should’ve been an All-Star to begin with, Booker will ultimately be in the All-Star game, as Anthony Davis will sit out to recover from an injury with Booker taking his place.

This makes Booker’s second All-Star appearance and one that’s well-deserved. He will join fellow former Kentucky Wildcats star Julius Randle in the All-Star game.

Much-deserved.
