Devin Booker has been playing exceptionally well in these NBA Finals and according to Jared Dudley, Kendall Jenner is the reason.
Booker and the Suns far exceeded expectations this year as making the NBA Finals was something nobody could have seen coming. The Suns made the bold move to go get Chris Paul in the offseason, and it paid off in the biggest way possible.
CP3 and Devin Booker have ignited a Suns backcourt that has them putting in explosive performance after explosive performance.
This duo led the Suns to the NBA Finals, and now, facing a 3-2 deficit, they’ll be the ones who will have to bring the Suns back. Part of this fiery backcourt stems from Booker’s improvement which Lakers veteran Jared Dudley believes is because of his girlfriend Kendall Jenner.

Jared Dudley Believes That Kendall Jenner Is The Secret Ingredient For Devin Booker And His Fitness
Fitness is a very underrated aspect when it comes to a players performances and his skillset. Ever since Devin Booker has been dating Kendall Jenner, Jared Dudley believes that his whole fitness regime has gone up a notch.
Dudley said that hanging around the Kardashians has had its positive effects, and the biggest possible effect was in the form of his physical fitness, something you can make out just by looking at the cuts on his body.
Dudley would say:
“If you look at his body now, he now finally has cuts in his body, got serious with his nutrition … In a way, I think him having a girlfriend has helped him. Helped him stay more focused, less out in the nightlife. It was his passing ability that was poor. He could shoot the ball…I knew he was going to be an All-Star player, but I just think he took the next step with his body.”
Whether this was the effect of Kendall Jenner or not is a separate question, but Dudley’s assessment in noting that Booker has been a far more physically fit and active player this year is completely valid.
Having more stamina, being stronger and faster, and in general having more power and control over your moves will make you a better player at the end of the day.
Dudley would add:
“He’s in phenomenal, phenomenal shape. He’s cut up. The first thing I saw was, looking at his face, I could see his cheekbones. He’s been with the Kardashians, I didn’t know if he had surgery or he lost some weight.”
