ESPN's Stephen A. Smith had a hot take on "First Take" on Monday involving Devin Booker. He prematurely called the Suns star "the next Kobe Bryant."
Some might not consider it a hot take, especially those close to him, including Booker's girlfriend Kendall Jenner. She liked an Instagram post with the hot take quoted.
Booker is one a hell of a player. He's taking what he did during the Suns run in the bubble to the next level this postseason, but that in no way makes him the next Kobe Bryant.
I get Stephen A's whole thing is making these types of statements, but let the man get a ring or two before comparing him to one of the best basketball players who ever lived.
The whole dating Kendall thing seems to elevate Booker a little more than just his on the court accomplishments. I want to see him bring a championship to the desert first!
