Let’s Calm Down The Devin Booker-Kobe Comparisons

If you haven’t already heard, Suns guard Devin Booker scored 70 points (!) in one game this past Friday night against the Celtics. Immediately after the game, a lot of people started to compare him to the great Kobe Bryant. Now I’m not gonna sit here and pretend that I watch Booker night in and night out. I would be lying to you otherwise but comparing Booker and crowning him the next Kobe because of one game is absolute craziness! Yes, Booker from what I’ve seen and heard is a very good player and one of the most exciting young guards in the league. What he did against the Celtics is nothing short of amazing and no one can take that away from him but to compare him to Kobe!!! That just isn’t fair to Booker, putting that kind of pressure on a 20 year old kid. Us as the public are always quick to draw these comparisons and I think we should all just pump the brakes a bit with this one.
