According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Suns guard Devin Booker is set to replace the injured Anthony Davis on the Western Conference All-Star team. The 24-year-old guard, who is leading the Suns to a top-four standing in the West, was viewed as one of the biggest snubs.

There is no arguing AD’s place among the All-Stars, but his recent Achilles injury has disqualified him from the game, meaning the league gets to pick a replacement to take his place.
Booker was the easy choice, even considering all the other names that could have been included.
This season, the young stud is averaging 24.7 points, 4.3 assists, and 3.8 rebounds per game on 50.1% shooting. As the main option for the Suns, he is a huge reason for their recent success. On Twitter, many fans expressed satisfaction that Book made it in.
W. Well Deserved Booker!

Booker should never ever be named an injury replacement ever again. He needs to be named as a starter or as a reserve.

W man but he still should have been selected in the first place he shouldn’t have to replace anybody

So, once again, it seems all is right with the universe. Suns fans can rest in peace knowing their guy will get the recognition he deserves.
