Phoenix Suns have been sinking for almost a decade. They are difficult to play at a high level. The Suns haven’t even been to the playoffs since 2010.
In 2018-2019, the Suns were also stranded in last place (15) in the Western Region with a record of 19-63. However, Devin Booker believes his team will rise next season. He said that after seeing the movement of the Suns at the break of the season.
One of the movements of the team from Phoenix is to recruit new coaches. Management replaced Igor Kokoskov with Monty Williams. Williams – who has been working as a coach for 14 years – then helped the team re-recruit several key players.
“I am very happy. Very happy, “Booker told SB Nation . “We have a very good coach, many players who have played in the league for a long time. Ricky Rubio, Kelly Oubre Jr., Dario Saric, Aron Baynes and some players who make me impatient to play. “
Booker believes his current team will help him navigate the season well. He considered the players experienced in the regular season and playoff. The 22-year-old guard also tried to learn from them, while leading them at the same time.
“We have a good team, who have experience, have playoff experience, and know how to get there,” Booker said again. “I will follow them, at the same time lead them, and rise from all this.”
Booker himself has defended the Suns since 2015. He is their main face at this time. Booker appears as the main number printer. He scored an average of 26.6 points plus 4.1 rebounds and 6.8 assists over four seasons.
The percentage of shots overall reached 43.7 percent. The overall shot effectiveness is 49.4 percent. While the true shooting percentage is 55.3 percent.
Next season, Booker is said to be returning to be the Suns main scorer. While other players help him. The new face of the Suns brings a breath of fresh air. However, the competition will remain fierce. Especially considering the increasingly cruel Western Region. Teams like the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers look threatening. Not to mention some well-known teams such as – one of them – Golden State Warriors who still want to be dominant. (put)
