Phoenix Suns star Devin Booker is in the midst of arguably the most important NBA season of his professional life.
Two years ago, Booker’s team made the NBA Finals. Last year, they couldn’t even get out of the second round. This season they’re barely fifth in the West, but obviously are getting Kevin Durant added to the roster after the All-Star Break.
Facing a ton of pressure in terms of his professional life, Booker also found himself trending this week over his personal life.
On Wednesday a video went viral of him and Kylie Jenner, the sister of his one-time girlfriend Kendall Jenner.

People absolutely could not get over the clip. It went mega-viral immediately and continued to surge in popularity more than 48 hours after it was posted.
Fans took to social media to react.

It is unclear when this video was originally made, but whenever it was, folks couldn’t get enough. Kylie is no stranger to the NBA community, what with one of the league’s biggest stars basically saving her life at one point.

Neither side has made any public comments about the other in months. At this point, it’s likely safe to assume that reconciliation isn’t in the cards.
Romance aside, Booker is probably better off single at this point. He has quietly emerged as one of the NBA’s best players, but a championship continues to elude him. Aside from this Kylie thing, he has maintained his focus quite well in 2023 thus far.
Will this mark the season where Booker finally wins that ever-elusive NBA championship? Time will tell.
