Devin Booker: "Excited to have Kevin Durant"

With Kevin Durant at the Phoenix Suns, the Arizona team has become one of the big favorites for the upcoming NBA Finals. Devin Booker spoke about the arrival of KD and the next goals of his team. Booker explained: "I can't put into words how excited I feel, I can't wait for the All-Star break to be over, when we have a chance to compete against each other.

I never got to play with Kev except for the Olympics, so it's a very exciting time. We've built something that the league wants to imitate. We were probably the laughingstock of the NBA up until four or five years ago, and turn that situation into a team that competes for titles it's a pretty big change.

So we're really proud of what we've built here. For us, the fact that Kev wanted to come here is an important sign, and shows respect for what we've done. We still have a lot to do, but we are moving in the right direction."

He also added: "Is the goal to win the next title? Hundred percent.

We had the same approach before the trade. Once you get to the Finals and understand what it is, it becomes anything you want. We have a goal, we know it won't be easy, but we know we have the talent, we have the mentality and everything it takes to win.

There is no clear leader, but will all veterans bring their experience to the locker room? We don't have a hierarchy. We have Chris Paul, one of the greatest leaders in the history of the game. There are Coach Monty Williams and general manager James Jones.

We have guys who all have the same goal. I think everyone has a different type of leadership. And I think everyone's characteristics, our mentality, complement each other." Known by the acronym KD, he is considered one of the best scorers in basketball history.

With the US national team he won the gold medal at the 2010 World Cup in Turkey, the 2012 London Olympics, the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, held in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic . Elected MVP of the 2013-2014 NBA season, he became NBA champion in the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons with the Golden State Warriors, being elected MVP of both Finals.
