Devin Booker has seen some (expletive). Those are his words, not ours.

He’s seen plenty of coaches and two general managers during his six NBA seasons. The first five left him searching for a playoff berth and then-some.

Booker appeared in 233 losses since he entered the league in 2015, more than any other NBA player. He experienced just 101 wins, and 285 other players during those years enjoyed more victories, according to research done by The Associated Press.

The Suns won 30.2% of their games over that span, the lowest ever for a team to make the championship round, per ESPN Stats & Info.

Including the 8-0 bubble run to end the 2019-20 season, Phoenix has gone 71-25, best of any NBA team.

To help Suns fans enjoy the moment — and the days leading into what’s sure to be a stressful NBA Finals — let’s look back to remember the tougher times that Booker experience with a simple exercise: Let’s name all the dudes Booker has played with: the good, the bad, the inspiring and the disappointing.
