Devon Booker Puts Draymond Green & The NBA Bubble On Notice

Clearly Devon Booker and the Phoenix Suns are sending a message to the rest of the NBA bubble as they won again on Saturday, this time taking down the Miami Heat 119-112.

5 games played in the NBA bubble for the Pheonix Suns, 5 wins for Devon Booker and his streaking Suns who are refusing to go quietly into the bubble night.

Booker who has had a very product 7 days after draining a game-winner against the Clippers last weekend had yet another spectacular game on Saturday as he loaded up the scoreboard with another 35 point performance.

The Suns are now the only undefeated team in the bubble and find themselves now just a half-game behind Portland for the play-in game spot.

Enter Draymond Green who made some controversially comments about Booker needing to be traded from Phoenix during an analyst appearance on TNT’s Inside the NBA.

“It’s great to see Book playing well and Phoenix playing well, but get my man out of Phoenix,” Green said. “It’s not good for him, it’s not good for his career. Sorry Chuck, but they’ve gotta get Book out of Phoenix. I need my man to go somewhere that he can play great basketball all of the time and win, because he’s that kind of player.”

As you might imagine Booker had a few comments for Green of his own:

“I feel like that’s important for this organization, for the fans that have stuck by us for this long and still do so,” Booker said when asked about Green’s comments, via Nick Friedell of ESPN. “Since I’ve been in Phoenix, we haven’t had the win success that we had, but the support’s been there. And this is what we owe to the fans, we owe to the organization. It’s been a long time for us and I think this bubble opportunity was big for us, and we’re taking advantage of it.”

The NBA jumped in on Sunday and fined Draymond Green $50,000 for his comments.


Sure the Phoenix Suns organization has been such a disaster over recent years that calling it an organization is a disgrace to the word organization. Still in the past 12 months, the team seems to have finally turned the corner.

You really have to give it to Booker who has shown an extreme amount of loyalty to the Suns. Booker is widely regarded as the NBA’s best basketball player on a bad team appears to be willing to stick with his team through the tough years which is refreshing in the era of hope-along NBA free agency.
