Devin Booker slams it home in NBA All-Star Game, social media explodes

Everyone knows of Devin Booker’s shooting skills.

But not many talk about his hops.

That’ll most likely change after Sunday night as the Phoenix Suns guard gave the crowd — and players — in attendance something to get out of their seats for.

Reaching up over Joel Embiid, Booker rocked the rim with his third and fourth points of the game.

Need to see it again? Here’s a close-up of the putback slam.

It may have only been his second make of the evening — Booker finished with six points, four rebounds and a block in 19 minutes of action — but it no doubt got social media buzzing.

Having already won a 3-point competition and playing in his first All-Star Game of his career, the next logical move is the dunk contest, right?

When the dust settled, it was Booker and Team LeBron that came out on top, edging out Team Giannis 157-155.
