He goes to the Rockets and they have their best seasons with Harden, he goes to the OKC and they start winning, now he's on the Suns.
The guy just knows how to run a team.
Has nothing to do with Booker? Got it. Thanks for the amazing hot take.
Booker is an All Star and has been for a while.
But just to add context here, SGA was an All Star last year and is having a better year this year.
Both players are All Stars.
Last year having an All Star player (SGA) with Chris Paul and OKC is won 61.1% of their games.
This year, even though SGA is having a better year the OKC are winning 38.7% of their games.
Last year Booker actually had a more efficient year in scoring than he's had this year. The Suns won 46.6% of their games.
This year Booker's scoring efficiency has taken a bit of a hit, still an All Star scorer, but now that the Suns have Chris Paul the Suns are winning 66.6% of their games.
My remark wasn't so much a knock on Booker here.
It's just Chris Paul is THAT GOOD of a PG.
