Devin Booker Biography
Devin Booker is a professional basketball player for the Phoenix Suns since 2015. He was born on October 30, 1996 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, U.S to Melvin Booker and Veronica Gutierrez.
Booker started his professional career as a basketball player in 2015 after he was selected by the Phoenix Suns in the first round of the 2015 NBA Draft on June 25. He was at the University of Kentucky at the time but had to abandon his remaining three years of college to play in the NBA.
Booker’s records in high school and college basketball were exceptional hence it wasn’t surprising at all when his potential was spotted immediately and was deemed to be fit for the NBA at the age of 18. He has since gone on to become more or less the face of the current Phoenix Suns team and helped them to the NBA Finals in 2021 but unfortunately lost out to the Milwaukee Bucks.
Booker became the youngest player in the NBA in 2017 to score more than 60 points in game. That game was against the Boston Celtics and ended with 70 points.
He again set another record two years later in 2019 as the youngest player in the history of the NBA to score 50 or more points in consecutive games. He then helped the US basketball team to win gold at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
