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!
