@Big Hands Tatum dropped 50 in the play in and in the playoffs Tatum took his team to the Conference finals TWICE D Book wouldn’t have if the Lakers were healthy you know it and I know it also he is not slow tf last time I checked Tatum averaged more assists, Rebounds, AND POINTS, better defender Tatum legit guarded KD that whole series I never saw Booker guarding LeBron I’m sorry I love Booker but he ain’t above Tatum man

Saying some dumb stuff for clicks is the new black. Booker hasn't proven anything, other than that he is a ball hog who can score when no other scorer is on his team. I'll be happy if he doesn't screw it up when CP3 sets him up for easy buckets.

What people need to do next season is start acknowledging guys like Devin Booker when we talk about guards & stop d***k riding Steph, Dame and all the marketable faces & names Fans and the media only care about stats & storylines, they ignore VALUE that's why I am glad Chris Paul showed everyone in the last round who the REAL MVP of the league was: Someone who can impact their team in "multiple" ways Jokic: 26pts, 10rbs, 8asts Embiid: 28, 10rbs, 2asts Westbrook: 22pts, 11asts, 11rbs Luka: 27pts, 8rbs, 8asts Giannis: 28pts, 11rbs, 5asts Can we really sit here and say that Jokic had the BEST season of all players: No He got the award simply because he.....played all 72 games, when did that become a criteria for winning the MVP When Giannis won back to back MVP, he missed 10 games the first time he won it & 9 games the second time he won it Chris Paul was the REAL MVP this season and is STILL the "best" point guard in the MVP.....hands down

I've been a huge Booker fan since he came into the league, I was already a Suns fan, but I knew Booker would turn this franchise around (okay, technically CP3 did that, assisted by Monty Williams and James Jones), but I knew right from the start that Booker was special. And I've told people for years exactly what Stephen A. said: Booker's offensive game is the closest thing to Kobe that the league has ever seen. I can't wait to see Book go all Mamba Mode in the Finals

The most frustrating thing about any sport is that analists only watch superstars that score most points , most rebounds etc. And they put bets on them and they don't even look at other players. They don't respect the chances of other teams. This season showed them that even the "worst" teams can defeat the best and when I saw their faces, I just died out of laughter. I stopped watching these comparisions when I've found out how brainwashing and stupid it is. They don't analyze the game, they analyze the players that play the most, score the most, and they have to be the faces of the league , they have to be the next kobe, lebron, jordan. No disrespect to these players, because their dedication to the game is absolutely insane and I love all of them for their passion for the things that they love to do. What about other players of the league? They don't have a passion? They don't care about the game? The thing is, that not everyone is a superstar in NBA or in any other league, but when they are there and playing, at least respect it. But staff of all 30 organisations and analists do the opposite. Unexpected trades, releases, just jumping around like it's nothing. It's just so sad to see...

We are all sinners and we cannot save ourselves! If a person gets to heaven because they kept the commandments or stopped sinning or got baptized, then that would mean that they were saved by their works. But we are not saved by our works! And if we are not saved by our works, then we cannot “stay” saved by them. We are saved by grace through faith! Salvation is a completely free gift! Jesus Christ died on the cross for our sins, was buried in a tomb, and rose again on the third day. Should a person use this as a license to sin? No. Of course not. If a person is living in sin, are they still saved? Yes. Of course. If you believe that Jesus paid the price for your sins (past, present, and future), was buried and rose again on the third day, you are sealed until the day of redemption and you cannot lose your salvation no matter what! Our salvation is not based on how we live. Our rewards in heaven are based on how we live. OSAS.❤️
