NBA rookie Devin Booker, 20, played a historic game that has many pro athletes talking


Phoenix Suns' shooting guard, Devin Booker, is two years out since he declared for the 2015 NBA draft, in which he stood out as a first round pick.

Now, the 20-year-old athlete is making headlines again for his skills.

Booker scored 70 points in Friday's game against the Boston Celtics, setting the Suns' franchise record for points in a single game.

No one else on the Suns scored more than 11 points.

He recreated the famous Wilt Chamberlain pose after the game, via Jared Dudley:

Booker started off with 19 points in the first half, but that number exploded in the 3Q.

He put himself in the history books for the franchise and the league based on his age.

Many athletes took notice of his performance, including Damien Lillard.
