Video: Dwyane Wade Gives Invaluable Advice to Rookie Devin Booker

Dwyane Wade and Devin Booker

As the Miami Heat took on the Phoenix Suns on Friday night, rookie Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker wasn’t shy when it came to praising the Heat’s former NBA Final’s MVP in Dwyane Wade.

“Obviously, Dwyane is a living legend, especially when he’s here in Wade county — everyone knows that,” Booker said. “So I just tried to take that challenge on. I like to have fun with it. Those are the games I live for. People I grew up watching and learning from. Now, I get to play against them. It gives me that extra oomph.”

In return, Wade made it clear that he was fond of the 19-year-old rookie as he explained his message to Booker.

“I was impressed with him the first time we played him, and I’m very impressed tonight,” Wade said. “When you’ve got a young guy going through a tough season like that, he’s just out there having fun. He’s out there getting better, and he’s one of the future [top] two-guards in this league.”
