The Phoenix “Wildcats” became a household team around the state of Kentucky. They already had Eric Bledsoe, Brandon Knight and Archie Goodwin, then adding Devin Booker and to top if off, Tyler Ulis.
Kentucky fans finally had a team they could get behind, covered up with Kentucky greats.
Of course, we had to realize that time would be short lived though. With Phoenix drafting mostly all guards, we had to know our joy would run out sometime. We didn’t ever want it to though.
But I never thought it would be Devin Booker mixed in the trade rumors.
Although this trade doesn’t seem very logic whatsoever.
Why would Phoenix trade their star for Porzingis? Granted, he’s a great player but not better than Booker, at least not in my biased Kentucky fan opinion.
I never want to see best friends, Devin Booker and Tyler Ulis split up and neither does any of the Big Blue Nation. Today’s rumor may make that a little more like reality though.
I think with big names like Brandon Knight and Eric Bledsoe though, that one or both will be shipped out to be a starter on another team. I won’t be mad at that happening with Knight because he deserves the spotlight and fame once again.
