VIDEO: Suns’ Devin Booker gets Team LeBron off their feet with a surprising putback dunk
Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker isn’t exactly known for his high-flying dunks. However, the first-time All-Star proved that he’s more than just a shooter during Sunday’s All-Star Game.
In the second quarter of the game between Team LeBron and Team Giannis, Booker went up after a missed 3-pointer from Team LeBron teammate Chris Paul. Booker’s surprising display of elite athleticism was enough to get the crowd and his teammates on the bench off their feet.

Devin Booker was selected as a replacement for injured Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard, who suffered a groin injury just before the All-Star break.
Prior to being selected as a replacement, the Suns star was seen by many as a major snub when the rosters were initially announced.
For the Suns this season, Booker is averaging 26.4 points, 6.3 assists and 4.2 rebounds per game while shooting 44.7 percent from the field and 35.8 percent from deep.
