Devin Booker and Kendall Jenner have quite the thing going on, with the Suns star having met her right after leaving the NBA Bubble.
The Phoenix Suns were eliminated from the NBA Bubble, after the Blazers and Grizzlies sneaked into the NBA play-in tournament. Booker, who had led the Suns to an 8-0 record in the Orlando Bubble, just couldn’t get the Suns over the line as the other results didn’t go their way.
However, while things didn’t go according to plan for Booker in the Bubble(not entirely i.e.), off the court, he seems to be enjoying himself.
Rumors about a relationship with Kendall Jenner have been rife, and there has been a lot of smoke around it in the last week or so. The duo flirted with each other over Instagram while Booker was still in the NBA Bubble and that got everyone talking about the ‘strawberry’ love between the couple.
And now, with Booker having left the Bubble, the duo seem to be taking things off Instagram too.

The rumored couple were spotted at Nobu in Malibu, accompanied by Kylie Jenner. Booker had just gotten back from the Disney World and wasted no time in meeting his rumored girlfriend for a quick night out.

Papparazzi was able to get a few pictures of all three stars, with Booker sporting a black hoodie and Kendall sporting a cream-colored dress.
Kylie Jenner was the only one wearing a mask though.
Was Kendall Jenner supposed to travel to the NBA Bubble?
Earlier this week, when the NBA released a memo regarding guests being allowed in the Bubble, it was reported that Kendall Jenner could be making her way to Disney World as part of Devin Booker’s guest list. However, the Suns were ousted before the playoffs and hence the Kendall Jenner Bubble visit didn’t quite materialise.
Booker though made sure that the couple were not apart for long, as he met up with Kendall right after getting back from the Bubble
The dinner date doesn’t come as a surprise to many NBA and Kendall Jenner fans, as the duo have been hitting things off for a while now. Earlier this year they were also spotted driving together to Sedona, Arizona.
However, despite all this online and offline ‘smoke’, the couple have maintained that they are just friends and hang out in the same social group.
Devin Booker and the Phoenix Suns
Booker gave it his all in the NBA Bubble, almost winning the ‘Bubble MVP’ too, if not for an even more spectacular Damian Lillard. He has shown the NBA fraternity what the Suns are capable of and how one more superstar in Phoenix could really turn things around for the franchise.
It is now upto the Phoenix front office to show some ambition in the off-season and get Booker more support in trying to achieve a playoff spot next season and maybe even a deep playoff run.
As far as ‘D Book’ is concerned, he would want next season to be a stepping stone a great NBA career, as he has shown he has the potential to be counted among the best in the league.
His off-court life is already flourishing from what we can see and things could really take off there too this off-season.
