Devin Booker is arguably the most underrated emerging star in the NBA at the moment. With a drive like no other, the former All-Star has broken multiple barriers already. He is easily one of the greatest players in the history of the Phoenix Suns franchise. At some point, he will be the greatest Suns player as well.
Looking at his recent run-ins with success, Devin Booker needs to be recognized much more than he is. The guard is currently averaging a career of 23.8 points, 4 rebounds, and 4.8 assists per game. Added to his exceptional offensive game, Dbook can shoot the ball very well. He became the All-Star Games 3pt Contest Champion in 2018 and set the former record for most points scored in the challenge as well.
How tall is Devin Booker?
Devin Booker can easily even play the third position as well. He could probably excel as well considering his immaculate game. The 2021 Western Conference Champion is listed at 6ft 5in tall which is about the average height of all the NBA players combined. Even then, Booker finds it very easy to tackle players of various positions due to his high IQ style of playing.
When compared to the rest of his team, Devin Booker is just under the team’s average height. The Suns’ average height is 6ft 6in. Chris Paul is the shortest player on the roster while Deandre Ayton tops the list at 7ft tall. The team has a good distribution of height which is good in terms of having players who can be versatile through various positions.
A standing ovation for Devin Booker 👏

Recently, they signed Kevin Durant who is listed at 6ft 10in tall, or some would argue that he is truly a 7-footer. The combination of Booker, KD, CP3, and Ayton will be a lethal force to be reckoned with. There is almost no way teams will be able to crack the code against such a versatile team.
He tried to hide 😂

Ever since signing the former league MVP, the Suns have gone undefeated. Devin Booker has been a major reason for their consecutive victories as well. He has led the team in scoring averaging 30.3 points per game since returning from his injury. The Suns have the best odds to win the NBA title right now as their entire roster has already once made it to the finals without KD. Now with the Slim Reaper by their side, a title seems inevitable.
