Don't compare Devin Booker to Kobe Bryant. The Suns star wants nothing to do with them. He shut them down during an appearance on "The Jump" on Monday.
Booker says he appreciates what Kobe did for him as a mentor, but added that he should "never be compared" to the deceased NBA legend.
"I should never be compared to Kobe Bryant."

It's hard to argue with Booker on this. What he's been doing this postseason has been awesome, but he's no Kobe Bryant.
Booker needs to put together a much bigger body of work before the comparisons can even start to be considered.
