Devin’s performance improved over time, and his father soon announced that he was being pursued by several ‘NBA’ teams. College basketball had a significant impact on Devin’s future as a star basketball player.
As a result, he embarked on a successful college basketball career, paving the way for a prosperous future in the sport. After finishing his first season at the university with an average of 10 points, he was confident that he would be selected in the ‘NBA’ draft.
In April 2015, Devin decided to forego his remaining college years and enter the NBA draft. Brooke was chosen 13th overall by the Phoenix Suns in June 2015.
He averaged more than 15 points per game during his first seven ‘Summer League’ games. Devin made his professional ‘NBA’ debut against the ‘Dallas Mavericks’ before turning 19 years old.
He was the first player in NBA history to make his debut at the age of 18 despite having at least one year of college basketball experience. Although the first half of his rookie season with the ‘Phoenix Suns’ was mediocre at best, the second half was spectacular.
With his 32 points against the Indiana Pacers in January, he became the NBA’s third-youngest player and the Suns’ youngest player to score more than 30 points in a game. Devin set another career-high with 34 points against the ‘Miami Heat’ in March, his best performance in that career.
Devin had 1,048 points in his rookie season, including another 30-point performance. With 13.8 points per game, he was the fourth-youngest ‘NBA’ player to reach 1,000 points in his debut season. Devin set a career-high of 38 points against the ‘New Orleans Pelicans’ in November 2016, and then surpassed it a few days later against the ‘Los Angeles Lakers.’
He became the first Suns player in 28 years to reach the 38-point mark in two consecutive games. When he scored 31 points against the Milwaukee Bucks in February 2017, he became the NBA’s youngest player to score at least 20 points in 16 consecutive games.
In October 2017, Booker scored 34 points against the ‘Portland Trail Blazers,’ finishing his 21st career game with 30+ points. Devin also became the third player in NBA history to accomplish the feat.
In a March 2018 game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, he scored 39 points. Devin became the third-youngest player in NBA history to reach 4,000 career points. Because of his mother’s ethnic background, he piqued the interest of the Mexican and United States national teams.
