Devin Booker explains not picking Suns in NBA 2K20
Devin Booker explained himself after receiving some negative headlines on Sunday.
Booker took on Michael Porter Jr. in an NBA 2K20 video game tournament. Booker wasn’t picking his Phoenix Suns as his team to use in the game, which led to some criticism online.

Booker later tried to defend himself by claiming the game has his “player messed up.”

Does that mean he doesn’t think his ratings are accurate enough or reflect his true level of talent? Possibly. Or maybe if he has his choice, he’d prefer not to play with a team that has had a winning percentage under .300 four seasons in a row.
Booker plays video games online fairly regularly, and was actually online when he learned the NBA season had been suspended.
