Devin Booker continues his meteoric rise up the scoring charts

NBA: Sacramento Kings at Phoenix Suns Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

When you’re mentioned in the same list as LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, and Kobe Bryant, you must be doing something right.

Devin Booker is mentioned among those all-time greats as he became the fifth-youngest player to reach 9,000 career points, only trailing the four aforementioned players.

Booker has shown from the jump of his NBA career that he has an elite scoring prowess, and is continuing to show that this year as he averages 25.4 points per game.

And this year is unlike any year he’s had in Phoenix as the Suns seem to be a legitimate contender in the Western Conference, currently holding the second-best record in the conference behind the Utah Jazz.

At 24.5 years old, don’t expect Booker to slow down anytime soon. By the way, those four players ahead of Booker are all top 30 scorers all-time.

Once again, pretty good company to be in.
