He has been one of the most exciting young athletes in the NBA for a few seasons now but he has found more fame and fanfare as his Suns have risen through the ranks of the Western Conference.
And now he’s passed a very important, unique milestone.

Booker is now the highest-rated shooting guard in the NBA 2K games, with a 91 rating.
That means that he takes the crown from the long-reigning James Harden, who has been the highest-rated SG in the game for a decade now.
To some, this might feel like something that doesn’t matter.
In the grand scheme of things, it doesn’t affect their chances of winning the Finals.
But it does show that the NBA landscape is changing and Booker is now one of the biggest names in the league.
Booker Bring It
It is true that this is just a video game rating and doesn’t have a true impact on the actual games these men play.
But the 2K series really does influence how fans view the league and the standing of the players within it.
Booker has certainly earned a high rating both in the game and in the real world and he is only going to build upon that and make it even higher in the years ahead.
In the season ahead, Booker and his Suns are going to fight hard to win the West and return to the NBA Finals.
Harden will be trying to take the East and also make the Finals.
These are not only two of the biggest shooting guards around, they’re two of the most consequential and important players alive.
