The dinosaur population is beginning to rise up against Devin Booker

Is this going to be a thing now? I think this is going to be a thing now.

Near the conclusion of Tuesday’s Phoenix Suns win over the Toronto Raptors in Toronto, Suns shooting guard Devin Booker was distracted at the free-throw line by the Raptors’ mascot. Booker told the mascot in an empty arena to get out of the way after the first free toss and the mascot obliged.

Booker was clearly just having fun with the moment. He laughed it off in the huddle afterward and leaned into it during his postgame presser.

Booker went as far as to change his profile picture on Twitter to The Raptor crouched in the corner after he shooed him away.

Friday’s opposition, the Indiana Pacers, were keeping a close eye on this and implemented their own inflatable dinosaur to distract Booker.

The dinosaur met Booker pregame. Booker pointed at it a few times, presumably laughing at the whole bit in some level of disbelief.

And when Booker had his first free throws of the game, he immediately pointed in the direction of where the dinosaur was and instructed it to start distracting behind the basket. He was game for this interaction.

The dinosaur had a sign ready for Booker.

The Pacers went as far as playing the “Jurassic Park” theme song during the introductions for the Suns’ starting lineup.

It appears Booker is now in a beef with the entirety of the remaining dinosaur population and that this is just only the beginning.
