LeBron James is sick of the Devin Booker disrespect

Devin Booker has been snubbed from a bid to the NBA All-Star Game. It’s become a tradition unlike any other, and frankly, LeBron James is sick of it.

The former Wildcat has been once of the best scorers since he entered the league with Phoenix in 2015. He won the Three-Point Contest Champion in 2018, but he has never earned an initial All-Star Game invitation, despite averaging more than 22 points per game throughout his career. Last year he finally found a spot on the roster as an alternate, filling in for an injured Western Conference player.

The biggest knock on Booker is that he has played on bad teams. “You can score, but can you win?” He turned it on in the NBA Bubble. Despite the longest odds, the Suns were one Trail Blazers loss away from making the Playoffs. After Phoenix added Chris Paul in the offseason, the Suns are now fourth in the Western Conference. He’s finally winning, still scoring 24.7 points per game, yet it wasn’t enough for an All-Star bid.


King James wasn’t the only one mad online after Booker’s name was absent from the NBA All-Star reserves.

Booker could still end up playing in Atlanta March 7. Anthony Davis’ injury will almost surely sideline him from the game and open up a spot for Booker to slide into the rotation for he Western Conference All-Stars. Even so, enough is enough. It’s time the rest of the NBA starts respecting Devin Booker. Don’t take it from me. Listen to LeBron James.

    One championship with all that’s been here in the last dozen years. Talk about underachievement.
