Phoenix continues its good offseason by recording the arrival of strong Jae Crowder. The winger will bring his toughness and leadership in a locker room that will need it. Above all, he will find Devin Booker, with whom he had a violent clash several years ago. The atmosphere may be electric at the first training!
After years and years spent in the depths of the Western Conference, the Suns finally seem able to join in the fight for the playoffs, or even for home advantage. After a flawless run in the Orlando bubble, Monty Williams will be able to count on an even stronger and more complete workforce.
Ricky Rubio, although very strong, will be replaced in the 5 by a Chris Paul back to the best level, which should greatly relieve Devin Booker in the creation, and what should turn a course for the already very promising Deandre Ayton. The arrival of Jae Crowder from the Heat should also do good for this group.
Moreover, the recent NBA finalist will find in the locker room a man he knows well: Devin Booker. Indeed, when he played in Boston, the winger was in the front row to see the 70 points scored by the Suns superstar on the floor of the TD Garden. Moreover, after the meeting, the two had severely clashed on social networks.
Jae Crowder : I have never seen so many happy guys after suffering a loss …
Devin Booker : Jae, you can’t stop me …
The 70 points of Devin Booker will unfortunately always be associated with a defeat … And at the time, the Suns were also widely criticized for having celebrated this feat in the locker room. If Jae Crowder’s remark is more than valid, D-Book’s response is at least as valid. The pictures speak for themselves.
This season, Jae Crowder will be more than happy if Devin Booker scores 70 points in a game. He will be the first to smile in the celebratory photos!
