The Tyler Ulis and Devin Booker Bromance: Gone But Never Forgotten

Yesterday afternoon, the Phoenix Suns waived Tyler Ulis, ending the three-year basketball partnership between Ulis and Devin Booker.

They were outspoken as high school recruits about their desire to play together in college, and they found a way to make it happen. They became best friends at Kentucky, but were soon separated for a brief period during Booker’s rookie season in the NBA. After two years at UK, Ulis entered the draft, and Phoenix reunited the two, where they spent two years together.

Now, the Suns have taken that away from us.

It’s heartbreaking for the Big Blue Nation, as we’ve gotten countless memorable quotes, videos, and pictures from the two former Wildcats. They were inseparable both on and off the floor.

    Just curious, why is KSR so obsessed with their friendship. Cool, they are friends and good basketball players. Just don’t understand the obsession over this “bromance”

    Can’t blame PHX, a healthy Brandon Knight and 6’6 Elie Okobo kinda out the writing on the wall.

      6’3 Okobo. But on another note. This might not be worst thing in the world for Tyler. If he can sign on with a team that has a veteran point guard it could do wonders. He needs to wind up in Portland, Houston, or Washington. Learn from guys who know how to use their speed. He’s already good enough of a facilitator. He needs to learn to be more efficient in his shot taking and how to use is his size as an advantage with his quickness.

    He needs to go somewhere that has a great point guard already and a system where its in place already and he can grow into that. I believe OKC would be a good fit for him. That system and Westbrook is kind of what Tyler strives to be

    I would think an NBA team would want that DOG that Ulis brings to the floor when the going gets tough in games or during practice…
