Devin Booker’s jersey from 70-point game sent to Hall of Fame
He may not even be of legal drinking age yet, but Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker is already going to the Hall of Fame … in a sense.
Booker’s game-worn jersey from his 70-point outburst against the Boston Celtics last month has been sent to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, they announced in a tweet on Tuesday.

The 20-year-old’s eruption on March 24 was the second-highest single-game scoring total in the 21st century and tied for tenth-highest in NBA history. While there was some controversy over the way Booker did it, it was a historic display in every sense of the word and will now be immortalized as such. Not bad for a kid who’s still the age of most college sophomores.
