Phoenix Suns superstar and local icon Devin Booker was named on Wednesday to the Forbes 30 Under 30 list for 2022.

The list released on Dec. 1 each year is meant to honor and showcase the top people under 30 years old in different industries such as sports, entertainment, technology and many others.

2021 has been a busy year for Booker as he helped bring the Phoenix Suns to their third-ever NBA Finals appearance, won a gold medal for Team USA in the Tokyo Olympics as well as got involved with different startup companies.

The shooting guard’s life has taken off beyond the hardwood as he has notched partnerships with Nike, Chevrolet and video game company Activision Blizzard.

Booker signed the richest deal in Suns’ history in 2018, inking a five-year deal worth $158 million. The well-known sneakerhead then snagged a huge extension to stay with Nike in 2019, according to Forbes.

The former Kentucky basketball player was named to Forbes’ list of the World’s Highest-Paid Athletes of 2021.

He also has gained a new following outside of basketball because of his relationship with internet sensation Kendall Jenner.

Booker is in Phoenix for his seventh season despite just turning 25 years old in October.
