Only six players in NBA history have scored 70 or more points in a game, but when the Suns’ Devin Booker dropped 70 against the Celtics on Friday, some of Boston’s stars took issue with the performance.
Celtics All-Star Isaiah Thomas was annoyed by Phoenix’s late-game tactics of timeouts and fouling despite a trailing by a wide margin, as the Suns clearly wanted more possessions for Booker to score.
“The fact that everybody keeps talking about him, he seems to be accomplishing whatever he’s trying to accomplish, because the things he says are so outlandish. But he keeps getting headlines, and I guess that’s what he wants.
“I don’t think it’s helping his kids,” Kerr continued. “I think it’d be better for them if they can just play and have fun and not have to hear that every day, but whatever. It’s all part of him.”
Lonzo isn’t the only potential basketball star in the family. LiAngelo and LaMelo are prep stars gaining attention for their play at Chino Hills High School. For what it’s worth, the kids have downplayed their father’s bold comments.
“He’s been like that my whole life. It’s nothing new to me,” Lonzo Ball said Thursday during UCLA’s media session. “He’s got a camera in front of his face now, so y’all are seeing it for Cheap Elite Nike NFL Jerseys the first time. He’s never going to change for the cameras. He’s been the same his Cheap Embroidered NFL Jerseys whole life.”
