Suns guard Devin Booker failed to make the NBA All-Star game a start

SALT LAKE CITY – Devin Booker appreciates saying Monty Williams should start the NBA All-Star Game next month in Cleveland, but all is well.

“I appreciate it, but I don’t worry about that anymore,” Booker said after scoring 43 points in Phoenix’s 105-97 win over Utah Wednesday night. “I’m at a different stage in my career.”

The NBA announced the All-Star start Thursday on TNT’s NBA Tip-off Show and Booker was not voted as a starter in the Western Conference’s backcourt.

Stephen Curry (Warriors) and Ja Morante (Grizzlies) were voted in the backcourt at the start, while LeBron James (Lakers), Nikola Jokic (Nuggets) and Andrew Wiggins (Warriors) made it the start of the conference..

Booker finished fifth in the third backcourt voting comeback for the Western Conference behind Curry (Warriors), Morant (Grizzlies), Luka Dongic (Mavericks) and Klay Thompson, who has played just seven games this season after missing the last two seasons with multiple injuries.
