The Rock will make Devin Booker a fanny pack if he wins an NBA title
Some are motivated by the haters.
Others are motivated by their families.
Devin Booker is motivated by a fanny pack. Let’s back up a second for context.
A few games back, the Phoenix Suns noticed that Booker’s suit, chain and turtle neck game was not far off from one of the classic portraits of wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
But The Rock pointed out that, when the picture was taken, he wasn’t doing as well as Booker is now, even though Booker is still on his rookie contract.
That chain? Cheap. That watch? Fake.
Only difference is I’m wearing cheap silver jewelry and a fake Tag watch. My rookie days were leaaaan;). Devin’s doing much better. 🤙🏾 https://t.co/hFMAsE2aOj

That’s some high-level respect given to Booker from one of Hollywood’s bigger stars.
Booker knows it. He also knows The Rock was far ahead in the fashion game. Not pictured in that cropped photo was the essential part of The Rock’s look: The fanny pack. So being polite, Booker asked this:
Hahah make ya a deal when you hold up that O’Brien trophy one fine day, I’ll make sure you have a personalized fanny pack ready to throw on. Keep chasin’ that greatness brotha 👊🏾🏆
