Moss Point alum Devin Booker gets first All-Star nod


On Saturday, Moss Point alum Devin Booker will take part in the NBA’s All-Star Weekend for the fifth time to start his career, but this will be his first time on an actual All-Star roster.

The Phoenix Suns guard is a replacement to the injured Damian Lillard and will also take his place in the three-point shootout.

Booker actually won the competition in 2018 and still holds the league record with 28 points in a single round.

The former Tiger and Kentucky Wildcat is the league’s 10th leading scorer and was one of the more notable snubs when the reserve rosters were initially announced last month.
