Devin Booker is making headlines with his relationship with Kendall Jenner. Some say this romance is making him a better player. Well, we do know that the Phoenix Suns made the NBA Finals thanks to his great performance in the postseason.
Los Angeles Lakers veteran Jared Dudley took notice of this and his comments were more than hilarious. The veteran appeared on a podcast and mentioned Booker. According to Dudley, Booker has had an excellent performance in the past few seasons. His postseason workout has always been great.
Here comes the fun part. Dudley said that Booker’s romance with the reality star and fashion model has helped him perform better.
“If you look at his body now, he now finally has cuts in his body. Got serious with his nutrition, getting IVs, taking care of his body,” he said. “In a way, I think him having a girlfriend has helped him. Help him stay more focused, less out in the nightlife, be able to be focused.”
That’s not all. The Lakers veteran joked about Booker’s relationship with the Jenner-Kardashian clan.
“I can see his cheekbones,” he said. “It looks like he’s getting surgery. Messing with the Kardashians, it could end up being surgery, or he lost some weight.”
Devin Booker has all the support from Kendall Jenner
Booker was impressive. “Impressive” describes his style, right? The 36-year-old erased the Lakers in the first round of the postseason. The two-time All-Star was averaging 29.7 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 5.0 assists per game in six games.
Booker has to play even better to lead his team to the championship. Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks won Game 5 of the series and they trail 3-2 at this point of the series.
Phoenix is down 3-2 and Game 6 will take place on the Bucks’ home court. Booker has to play his best basketball to win his ring. A lot of things can change tonight and Tuesday is a big day for the Suns. LeBron James roots for the team despite the fact that they eliminated his Lakers in the first round.
