Devin Booker’s blunt reaction to Kendall Jenner dating Bad Bunny has caused something of a stir.
On the basketball court, Booker and his Phoenix Suns are widely regarded as the team best positioned to win the NBA title this year.
The franchise’s bold decision to go out and acquire Kevin Durant ahead of the NBA Trade Deadline took them from a top-tier squad to arguably the best in the league.
While Booker is definitely firing on all cylinders from a hoops perspective, his personal life has seen better days.
This past week multiple photos emerged of Jenner with Bad Bunny, leading to speculation that the pair is now an item.
How did Booker react? Not well. He seems to have unfollowed Jenner on Instagram. Not only that, he also appears to have unfollowed her best friend Hailey Bieber. Jenner subsequently unfollowed Booker as well.
Fans had a lot of reactions to this turn of events.
“Guess the ‘we still friends’ act was good as long as none of them started seeing someone new too publicly,” one person wrote.
“He’s in his feelings,” another fan agreed.
“Typical Scorpio post-breakup,” a third person observed.
It is unclear what role, if any, Booker’s recent video with Kylie Jenner had on all this.
In any case, Booker would be wise to just switch his focus back onto basketball. Expectations are sky-high for what he and Durant will be able to accomplish together, even if certain NBA stars aren’t particularly impressed with the threat they’ll pose.
But this is crunch time for Booker.
Two years ago, he came within a couple of wins of his first NBA championship.

One year ago, he and the Suns got completely emasculated by Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks in the second round.
A title needs to come in 2023. There is no more room for excuses.
Will Booker and Durant be able to get it done? Will Jenner still be cheering for them despite this messy sequence of events? One way or another, an answer to all those questions should come soon enough.
