The Downbeat #1606: Who is Devin Booker?

Is there room for two Bookers in Utah?

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

Dante Exum had his ups and downs this season, but it's always good to have a little perspective on a young player like Dante.  Here's one of those perspectives.

Yes, two years ago, Dante Exum had just won a National Championship ... for his HIGH SCHOOL.  Out of all the rookies this year, Dante made the biggest leap.  If he can make another leap like he did this year we'll be joking around that people like this guy actually think Jordan Clarkson is better than Dante Exum.

WHERE IN THE WORLD IS ALEC BURKS?  Seriously, where is this picture taken?

Also, nice kicks, Alec.  Nice kicks.

UPDATE: Another sighting at the same place. #AlecBurksWatch


I found this video while I was searching for news on Alec Burks.  Someone was asking Alec Burks to share the video.  He didn't, but I will. BECAUSE I AM FULL OF MERCY.  Some 9 year old who has some serious skill and is ADORABLE.  WATCH THE ADORBS.

We've talked about how Gordon Hayward and Derrick Favors are having kids at the same time.  I presume it's with each other so that it has Gordon Hayward's handle and jump shooting mixed with Derrick Favors' post moves and defensive prowess.  But we have ignored the other consequence of Gordon Hayward's baby making.  Butler's 2034 starting lineup.  Yes, folks.  Be scared for 2034.  Be scared.

Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders believes Rudy Gobert should be the Defensive Player of the Year.  RUDY! RUDY! RUDY!

Additionally, Basketball Insiders has the Jazz selecting Devin Booker of Kentucky with their pick.  Need some catching up on Devin Booker?  So do I.  Let's refresh together.
