Do a search. This idiot has gotten into BS with a ton of other NBA players. And while he is a very good offensive player, he is one dimensional and can't play defense. I am thinking on a really good team, he becomes second unit like Williams and Young.

Booker punks Z-Bo

I find myself hoping someone teaches this kid a hard lesson.

Watching him last night was comical. Constantly whining and bitching at the refs was definitely pucklike.

I think he and Embiid are going to get a rude awakening with one of the older vets. They seem to troll and antagonize players and refs. It'll come back to bite them, and i doubt they throw punches back.

Yeah. Something to that effect. Same with Embiid. He's going to try to pull some crap with Bogut or Baynes one day...

He's been a clown since Year 1. Since the national media loves him, he gets portrayed as this hyper competitor at such a young age - fearless. But it's so forced and punk-like with him, it's a wonder no one has put him on his ass yet.

Last night looked like the other Suns gm 3 wks ago. Lakers closed it out late, Brewer played friskily, Booker was being a whiny, angry B all night. All the same things happened again. He was actually worse in the last game, got into a huff with Brewer.

1 dimensional chucker. Ideal scenario, he ticks off the thug Patrick Beverley, they have a (bleep) fight and both get suspended for a long time.

Beverley is as fugazi as Booker is.

I watched the game, but don't really get what set him off. Bunk pitch 100.

Z-Bo was the one who punked Booker. It was a foul but also an obvious flop by Randolph.

I don't care if he gets his ass kicked or not. That's no concern of mine. But he does act like a lil B often and if that's because he hates losing, then do something different man. He goes out there and wants to score like Kobe, but Kobe also found ways to win. So if he's gonna be mad, be mad at himself. Can't blame DLO, or Nance, or Randle, or BShaw, or whoever he gets mad at when getting whomped by teams.

Not sure he has taken the crown from Chris Paul, but he's trying hard.

I hope he doesn't break any more scoring records of real players. I guess he is a talented scorer and deserves credit for that, but it is not right that he is one of 6 players in NBA history that reached 70 points. It is not even right that he has a higher scoring game than LeBron James, Kevin Durant or Stephen Curry.

That little screw head pushed him in the back.

All Z-Bo did was attempt to get the refs to look at it. What else can he do?

Punch the little boy out?

I can't hate on him. He might be annoying on the court, but during summer league dude was gracious and generous with the fans, especially the kids. Couldn't say the same about some of his contemporaries...

Any player who scores 70 in a game deserves it and any accolades that come with it, and I'm not even a fan.
