Booker is supposedly 6-7. Magic 6-9. But look how much higher Magic's shoulders are. I know he has added weight, but he is just a big person overall.

Hopefully he picks Magic's brain. One of the most amazing effortless players I've ever watched.

I do not think Booker is 6'7 at all.
He was not even 6'6 with shoes at the draft. After growing a little bit more he is a solid 6'6 now and it is a nice height for a SG.

Magic is BIG.

Booker is nowhere near 6'7"; he is listed at 6'6", and I personally believe that he is about 6'4". For a point of reference, Michael Jordan's listed height was 6'6", and he was more like 6'4" and 1/2, maybe 6'4" and 3/4, much like Charles Barkley.

Without sneakers, most modern NBA players are probably one-to-two inches shorter than their listed heights. Magic Johnson was 6'8" at the most, maybe 6'7" and 1/2.

Steve Nash's listed height was 6'3"; I suspect that he was more like 6'1" and 1/2. Kevin Johnson was listed at 6'2" for his first three seasons; then he suddenly "shrank" to 6'1". Obviously, he made the decision to now be listed by his real height instead.

Why you mad NTB? Magic Johnson is already calling Booker a living legend, we should all be thrilled! :wink:

Suns guard Devin Booker's 70-point performance in Boston was one of the highlights of the NBA regular season. But was it the top performance? You'll have to decide.

For the first time, the NBA is including six fan-voted awards to its annual lineup. They are: Dunk of the Year, Best Style, Block of the Year, Game Winner of the Year, Top Performance of the Year and Assist of the Year. Winners will be announced at 6 p.m. on Monday, June 26 during the first-ever NBA Awards show on TNT.

In addition to Booker, Suns rookie point guard Tyler Ulis is up for Game Winner of the Year. His 3-point shot at the buzzer beat the Celtics on March 5 in downtown Phoenix.

That is really interesting. Especially this part...

Devin Booker is the future of the Suns. His charisma is off the charts. His popularity is staggering. It makes perfect sense that a life-size cutout of the NBA star is currently the focal point of a second-grade classroom and on Qwigglez' wall.


But the craziest part is that it's a school in Austin, where I live. I know my nephew is a big Booker fan who got a Booker autograph this season, but this isn't his school (I had to check).

I can't get over how hilarious this is that an entire classroom of 2nd graders are that big of Booker fans.

Yeah and I love it. It makes me chuckle when I hear people say that Ryan's job is hanging by a thread and that we are already in must win territory. Sorry, I don't buy it. Sarver really wants to win but he absolutely wants to make money more than anything. Ryan got us Devin and Devin is a cash cow just waiting to be milked. I think his game will actually be legendary but as long as it's almost in the neighborhood, he's going to be worth his weight in at least gold if not diamonds, perhaps even anti-matter (currently valued at 62.5 Trillion per Gram).

It's nice to see kids like someone other than Curry or Durant or Lebron.

I'm pretty sure she is the Booker fan and her class has only started to like him because she introduced him to them. Still cool to see, I'd rather have kids look up to Booker than some of these other superstars.

Maybe, but she is a huge Mavs fan. There could be one of the kids is a super fan who really liked him and talked about him or brought him up. She suggested they brought him up in one of the tweets or articles I believe. My nephew is around that age and can name all the players, has all the cards, etc. Got a Booker autograph.
