At 27 years old and 118 days, Booker joined some of the greatest players of all time to reach this milestone by this age.

Only LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony, Wilt Chamberlain, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Michael Jordan scored 14,000 points at a young age. Only Antetokounmpo is not among the NBA’s top ten scorers of all time.

Booker also joins Suns teammate Durant as the only players in NBA history to accomplish 14,000 points and 1,000 3-pointers before the age of 28.

Booker’s 21 points versus LA put him only 10 points behind Jordan’s total at the same age.

Last Monday, Booker surpassed Alvan Adams to become the Suns’ second all-time leading scorer. He presently needs 1,661 more points to become the Suns’ all-time leading scorer, surpassing the late, great Walter Davis.

Booker has averaged 27.5 points on 49.6% shooting and 7.0 assists in 48 games this season for the 34-24 Suns.

Booker’s career average is 24.2 points on 46.4% shooting in 578 regular-season games. Booker is ranked 25th all-time in points per game average.
