Breaking news: Phoenix Suns have announced unstoppable player of next season

Improving this one area will make Devin Booker unstoppable next season

The Phoenix Suns have a roster that is only ever going to go as far as their three stars can take them. While both Kevin Durant and Bradley Beal may already have peaked in The Valley, Devin Booker will always be the cornerstone of the franchise as long as he is in town.

Booker also had a fantastic 2023-24 season, but unfortunately may have taken a step back in the minds of many fans after a poor playoff outing. With Jayson Tatum back in the NBA Finals for the second time and Anthony Edwards breaking out in a big way, Booker is being left behind as these stars add to their already impressive resumes.

It is clear then Booker needs to add to his game to right back into the conversation, and there is one tool he can add to his arsenal to become unstoppable.

It sounds so obvious, but that one thing he can improve dramatically on? His 3-point shooting percentage, which last season stood at an acceptable 36.4 percent. There is absolutely room for improvement there, especially when you consider Booker shot a shade more threes each night (6.1), than the Suns’ lead marksman, Grayson Allen (5.9).

That Allen led the entire league (46.1 percent) in this category while shooting at essentially the same volume of Booker only proves that he is capable of closing the gap to Allen some. Obviously much more is expected of Booker offensively, and it is because he is so good with the ball in hand and willing to pass to teammates that Allen did go on to lead the league in this area.
