Kobe Bryant gifts Devin Booker with signed sneakers saying ‘Be legendary’


Kobe Bryant’s retirement tour is the gift that just keeps on giving.

Suns rookie Devin Booker was the latest opposing shooting guard to receive a parting gift from The Black Mamba on Wednesday after Phoenix’s 119-107 over the Lakers, Bryant’s last game in Arizona.

Booker proudly showed off on Instagram the signed sneakers Bryant presented him with, complete with the inscription “Be Legendary.”

Thank you, @kobebryant #BeLegendary

Cool stuff indeed for the 19-year-old guard who was just four days old when Bryant made his NBA debut in 1996. Nevertheless, Booker, who looks like arguably the best pure scorer to emerge from this year’s draft class, is already well on his way to taking Bryant’s advice to heart.

For Bryant, who has already gifted the likes of Klay Thompson and Tony Allen with some autographed goodies this season, he is ensuring that his imprint is felt amongst the next generation of great two-guards before he exits, and it’s truly awesome.

Devin Booker’s car pranked by veterans


Since the injury to Eric Bledsoe, Suns rookie has taken on a much larger role in the offense and performed admirably. However, expanded responsibility or not, Booker is still in his first year in the NBA and was treated accordingly by some of the veterans on the team.

As seen above, Booker returned to his car to find it filled with packing peanuts, an oldie but goodie in the rookie prank book. The 19-year-old took it in stride though, which is pretty much all you can do. He even posted this video of the peanuts flying around inside of his car.

All things considered, having to clean up peanuts is somewhat mild when it comes to the aftermath of a rookie prank. Booker’s car could have been wrapped in foil or the wheels could have been gone.
