20-year-old Devin Booker is rapidly evolving into the face of the Phoenix Suns franchise, and the kid seemingly isn’t fazed by anything.
Booker says he always believed that he would turn into an NBA star.

The Suns inserted gave Booker the starting two-guard spot this season—his second in the L—and he’s excelling.
Per Bleacher Report:
Over the summer, (head coach Earl) Watson described the baby-faced guard as “an old soul in a young heart.” Before an early-season loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, he talked about Booker as “the biggest part of who we are”—even though the youngster sat out that game with a toe injury.
That’s a lot to put on anyone’s plate, let alone that of someone who’s not yet old enough to order a beer.
“I always knew I was capable of this,” Booker said. “I didn’t know I’d get this opportunity this early, but I knew I’d have my opportunity. And when it came, I wasn’t looking back.”
